Green Catalogs and Magazines / Bringing Green Indoors / Pursuing Vintage

I’m sick of seeing white. I’m tired of playing in the snow. I’m tired of playing in the house. My kids have been home wayyy too long! Oh, and did I mention that I had no internet or cable for nine whole days?!  I’m extremely behind reading all of my favorite blogs, scrolling Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram… answering emails.  I feel very out of touch right now!

Fortunately I get a lot of snail mail. Magazines and catalogs seem to sensing my growing need to get out of winter (that has barely started – I know). I’m seeing green everywhere in print!  Which is great because all of this white out my window has me dreaming of green.

Green Catalogs and Magazines / Bringing Green Indoors / Pursuing Vintage

Using plants indoors is nothing new in 2016, we saw a lot of that last year.  But I feel it still has momentum and is not a dying trend.  And somehow plants just feel so right when paired with vintage!

Here is some indoor green inspiration.  Greenspiration.

If you want to follow an Instagram feed with tons of beautiful indoor green inspiration, please check out Annabode’s feed.  Anna has wonderful aesthetic and she manages to sneak in a bit of green in many of her photos.  This is one of my favorites:

And now, it is time for my confession:  This is what my house plant looks like right now…

Dead house plant / Pursuing Vintage

He was outside on our screen porch all summer and thrived there.  I brought him in before winter hoping to keep him alive.  Clearly I’ve failed.  I’ll just stick to admiring all the indoor plants in photos of other people’s homes!

    Oh no, that poor plant! That corner must be too dark for him.
    I’ve really enjoyed my plants this winter and, now that you mention it, I do think they help me get through cold, homebound days. I took a terrarium class in DC before Christmas…I definitely recommend it as something fun and different to do with a group of friends, and succulents are hard to kill. 🙂

    Hoping you dig out and can get out of the house soon (to do some thrifting of course).
    I’ve got one live plant in my house and the rest are faux because I don’t have a green thumb. But after seeing the photos in your post I just might get another plant and give it a try.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    You poor dear! The only thing that kept me sane was my internet connection during the 5 snow days. I got little work done and it made me grumpy but at least we did not lose power.

    Oh no Kristen, I understand completely as I have been house bound for a bit as well!
    Love the greenery and have a fiddle leaf fig tree that is actually thriving (for now anyway!)
