While making our way down Long Street in Cape Town last week, we noticed YoursTruly’s beautiful garden installation creating a juicy flourish of green outside their store on the sidewalk. It immediately attracted our attention.

Spring is truly in the air now.

We love how just about anything can be a container for plants.

Great idea. Take an old chair that you’re not that fond of, knock out the seat and turn it into a plant holder.


For more ideas to green your home, take a look at Elle Decoration’s Spring Issue. Botanical artist Jacques Erasmus shows us how to mass wild flowers and bunches of spring foliage to bring life and living things back into our places. Jacques’ ideas are so simple and beautiful.
