Spring has sprung! Not only am I prepping my balcony, but I am also so happy that my indoor plants are growing again. I admit, I also added a few new plants to the home – blame it on the sunshine! And with new plants comes the need for new plant pots, right? And right in time I received a few beautiful new pieces from Räder, a German brand offering beautiful ceramics, home accessories and gifts. Their latest products have a charming name: Garden City and City Garden (Gartenstadt and Stadtgarten in German). Why this name? Well their new planters are little houses that invite the user to combine them into a little ‘garden city’ – a great idea for a centerpiece on your dining table or the windowsill.
The cute new planters invite the user to play with them. First, I placed them loosely on my dining table as a fun center piece. One planter went to the kitchen as a little herb house. Then I tried a new setting: placing them along other plants on my windowsill. I think in both ways they look just wonderful and really catch the eye. I particularly like the cubic houses as they remind me of the Cycladic architecture from the Greek isles. A bit of a holiday memory for the windowsill!
The new planters from Räder come in various sizes: the cubic houses come in small in large (combine a large one with two small ones for a lovely effect) and the ‘Garden City’ houses with metal framing come in three sizes – small, medium and large. The large one is a great option for herbs in the kitchen – think of a kitchen windowsill. They work great together or separately – the more you combine, the greater the ‘Garden City’ effect is!
So are you ready to create your indoor garden? Spring has sprung after all! Happy planting and decorating!
