Grow your greens!

This simple white table with concrete containers by Serax will look perfect in your interior. It is super practical (it's not that large so you can easily place it on your terrace) and has another great advantage: you can grow herbs in the concrete containers. So you always have fresh herbs when you need them!

Passion for plants

A handy index of all the plants, including their specific characteristics and interior features with the florist Marc Colle, the interior photographer Martyn Thompson and the fashion designer Christian Wijnants all in one book?  Bart Kiggen and Magali Elali of the successful interior blog Coffeeklatch have managed to pull it off. The result is a lovely coffee table book, featuring an interesting mix of people who are all passionate about plants.
