Brass Plant Mobiles by Natalie Joy

by Grace Bonney

This past weekend, I finally had to admit that my poor, struggling bathroom oxalis was ready to head to the great garden in the sky. No matter where I placed it, it seemed to wilt, and no matter how much (or little) I watered it, I just couldn’t get it to come back to life. So in light of that lack-of-a-green-thumb development, I’ve had artificial plants on my mind.

These brass plant mobiles by Natalie Joy (who also makes the earrings of my dreams) are a great alternative to real plants if, like me, you’ve had mixed results with house plants. Natalie designed brass versions of Philodendron, Monstera, Cactus and Corn plants, and each one feels like a bright and shiny sculptural version of the real thing. If you need a little plant life at home but want to skip the watering, click here to check them out and shop online. xo, grace
