Are you enjoying our various posts on Portland? They will end at some point, but we love the town and we spent a lot of time doing research there for the blog.
One major thing we saw during our time in Portlandia was the popularity of terrariums. They were prominent at all of the coolest locations we visited: hotels, restaurants, shops (home and otherwise). Let’s look at a couple of examples we snapped.
This pic probably looks familiar from our post yesterday. It’s the centerpiece of the coffee table in the lobby at the ACE. They are making use of 2 separate terrariums in this install. Also, using a couple of other trends we’re seeing: air plants, cacti and succulents.
Here’s a view from the other side. More succulents, cacti and one really cool trend we’re seeing: using vintage boxes as planters.
Similar in this pic from a house tour I’m obsessed with on ApartmentTherapy. A vintage box used as a planter for succulents looks amazing.
Schoolhouse Electric also got in on the terrarium trend.
Here’s a zoomed in pic of their great looking terrarium.
So how do you get in on this trend?
- West Elm has some great options in terrariums, succulents and cacti
- Home Depot has a good succulent selection
- Terrain has an amazing selection of terrariums
- Airplantsupplyco.com to get a couple of Air Plants (super low maintenance!)
- Hit the antique stores and find some amazing boxes to put your new plants in!
