Urban Jungle: Living and Styling with Plants book review

Trust me when I tell you that Urban Jungle: Living and Styling with Plants by Igor Josif and Judith de Graaff (the founders of Urban Jungle Bloggers) is an absolute joy to read.

The book is broken down into three main sections……

I can’t remember if I…

Decorating with air plants

I’ve been trying to decide where to hang my ceramic wall dot vase from Collett & Holder for so long, and then I realised that our en suite bathroom was well overdue a bit of love and attention, so I thought that I’d make the vase part of a bigger spruce up. All the main elements were there, but the room just needed some life adding to it, so I hung a couple of picture frames (you can find similar at Decorator’s Notebook) in which I popped some dried honesty from my parents’ garden and a few of the peacock…
