One of my favorite things about getting to design a studio space is getting to decorate a space that is TOTALLY different from my house. I live in a 1920s row house in DC’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, so when I decorate at home I have to choose details and elements that honor the age of our house. But Common Room Studio is located in an industrial space and is basically a big white box, so I get to be more modern and creative with my selections! Right now I’m all about bringing in natural textures to balance the industrial elements, which includes bringing in TONS of plants! I’m also loving the idea of mixing wall planters, mirrors, and maybe a couple of hanging planters to create a really unique installation at the studio. Here are a few of the plants and mirrors that I’ve got my eye on these days!
From top left:
1. When mixing hanging planters together, I like to vary both the length and the material composition of the planters themselves. I love the geometric lines of this hanging metal planter
2. A fun macramé hanging planter – and it’s on sale!
3. An iridescent mirror! I’m completely obsessed (obviously).
4. Loving the speckled glaze – not to mention the fun pop of color and texture! – on this hanging ceramic planter
6. This diamond mirror would be GORGEOUS surrounded by hanging planters and wall planters – especially in an entry way!
7. A crescent moon mirror is the perfect addition to a space with a bohemian vibe
8. Want the look of a lush indoor garden without the upkeep? These incredibly lifelike plants are actually faux!
9. Loving the organic shape of this Quartet Mirror from Anthro
10. A modern circle mirror with warm wood tones
11. This copper wall planter would be perfect for an indoor herb garden! I’m also loving the idea of mixing a few of these affordable ceramic hanging wall planters (not shown) with several mirrors for a living wall that is half plant, half art installation. Plant fast-growing and low-maintenance houseplants like pothos and spider plants for a lush living garden!
12. I’m actually eyeing this half circle mirror to hang above a DIY yarn wall hanging, but I couldn’t resist including it here! It’s also super affordable for a custom mirror at just under $100!
