A Few Lovely Ideas Via Lonny Mag

Do you live in a city where gardens and backyards are a thing of the past? Why not create your own little urban oasis with a indoor garden like this! 
Monograms are back friends and I am loving these by Leontine Linens! They're the perfect way to personalize a space and make home a true reflection of you.

Doing the dishes has never been so chic! This suzani serving tray from Decorative Things used as a dish rack base is nothing short of stylish genius!

Love the garden table with it's terracotta pots! Love it almost as much as the monogram hand towels and lovely wallpaper in the powder room. As for the tray -- Crstal, I try my best not to have to go near a kitchen sink. I'm allergic to doing dishes. 'Tis the Kings greatest lament.
Off to Dallas...XOXO

Hi there, I adore these fab ideas,that I can quickly put into action, I have a hankie sized yard all be it Mexican themed, but am always looking for new exciting ways to bring the outside in and the tray is genius! Sharon xxxooo

I'd probably only kill the plants but I could do with that lovely round table for a reading alcove.

Jaime said...

Love the indoor garden- sadly, like Mise, I too kill plants!

Little Rus said...

Love the table garden idea! We have one like this in our garden, but I might create something similar indoors, I think. This way I can enjoy my plants in winter. :) xxx

Yay for another Lonny feature! I'm hoping that if enough of us blast the internet with their fabulous ideas, we can get them to go into print.

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

@Mise & @Jaime: Me too! Perhaps a hard to kill cactus would be the answer?

@Sharon Taftian: I was thinking the very same thing! I would LOVE to see it evolve into print someday :)

Completely agree. Great ideas - it's all in the details as you know!

I keep meaning to have an herb garden in my kitchen so I can always have a live garden in my home. These reminder me of that. I need to get on it. It always brings so much life in when there are live plants. Especially when one can eat them!

Couture Cookie said...

I actually used to put my dish rack on a tray like that! Unfortunately, it got so filthy all the time, and my boyfriend forced me to get rid of it! LOL

Love the little garden!

The first photo is pure bliss! Sometimes I have to remind myself that simple things like plants worth much more than sophisticated design objects! Thanks for this inspiraiton!
