Modern Jungle my Aesthetic *Roots* 😉

In keeping with my obsessive love for houseplants it makes sense that my aesthetic has to do with the way they interact with their surroundings. As I have posted before I love modern architecture. What strikes me about the following instagram posts is the way that the black and white is such an outstanding color to let the varying leaf and pot shapes pop! The leaves and stems are so unique by themselves that they make great focal points in the room. They also bring a theme of life and even warmth into a modern space which typically has a cool feel and can sometimes even feel sterile. The texture and colors of the pots can also really make a difference in the presentation of the plant and space.

My black kitchen, well black & green. The steel staircase has 30 mm thick clear acrylic treads which I had sandblasted on the top so they don’t get scratched, the light from a 6 meter long skylight in the room above shines right through so the plants hung underneath do really well. Isn’t it amazing how many more places you can find to fit plants … when you think you’ve found them all another one appears 😉 . . . . . #plantnerd #houseplantclub #houseplantplantclub #plantporn #plantstyling #plantsmakepeoplehappy® #plants #urbanjunglebloggers #plantstyling #aroid #aroidaddicts #araceae #idrinkandgrowthings #botanicalpickmeup #houseplantsofinstagram #greenyourfeed #indoorjungle #house_plant_community #indoorplants #plantgang #plantar #talkplantytome #loftstyle #loftliving #houseplantcommunity #apartmenttherapy

Sunday is change bed linen day! I was inspired by the velvety, dark green colour of Philodendron hederaceum. Deep Green Plant cast from left, Dioscorea discolor, Syngonium chiapense, hanging off the bed is Hoya compacta ‘Krinkle 8’, Anthurium crystallinum, Philodendron hederaceum & Alocasia ‘Ebony’. PS a note for people who say I don’t do enough colour… so unfair, I do pale green, mid green, forest green, moss green, olive green & green 😛 The Forest green linen quilt cover and pillow cases I dyed myself a few years ago because I couldn’t find any. . . . . . . . . . #plantnerd #houseplantclub #plantporn #plantstyling #pflanzen #pflanzenliebe #philodendron #anthurium #aroid #araceae #aroidaddicts #plantsmakepeoplehappy® #plants #urbanjunglebloggers #plantstyling #loft #loftstyle #idrinkandgrowthings #jungalow #botanicalpickmeup #plantinterior #houseplantsofinstagram #greenyourfeed #indoorplants #plantgang #houseplantcommunity #plantinspiration #plantsofinstagram #junglehome #plantinterior #planter #apartmenttherapy

Sun on a Sunday morning, there’s a 7 meter long skylight that floods the upper floor with light making it a natural greenhouse. This building used to be a print factory from the early 20th C. Keep an eye out in March when me & my Melbourne pad will be on @gardeningaustralia .I designed the Rattan planters for my business @mrd_home , they’re called ‘Beliz’. I wanted something organic but minimal at the same time. . . . . . . #plantnerd #houseplantclub #plantporn #plantstyling #pflanzen #pflanzenliebe #alocasiasarian #alocasia #plantsmakepeoplehappy® #plants #urbanjunglebloggers #plantstyling #loft #loftstyle #idrinkandgrowthings #jungalow #botanicalpickmeup #plantinterior #houseplantsofinstagram #greenyourfeed #indoorplants #plantgang #houseplantcommunity #plantinspiration #plantsofinstagram #junglehome #plantinterior #planter #indoorplantsdecor

This was my little pot plant wall when I first made it in 2014, I’ll post a pic of it now in a bit. My bathroom is on the left and my bedroom with the four post bed is on the right, it’s all open so you can see how this is a fab plant growing environment with all that diffused light. . . . . . . . . . #plantwall #indoorgardening #indoorgarden #houseplantclub #aussieplantclub #idrinkandgrowthings #plantstyle #plantdesign #plants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #houseplantplantclub #indoorgreen #botanicalpickmeup #indoorplant #plantsofinstagram #plantsarefriends #aroid #aroidaddicts #indoorjungle #urbanjunglebloggers #urbanjungle #loft #loftstyle #loftliving #plantsinfocus #plantsindecor #ohiotropics

These roots tie in with my project as my project is a plant shelf that is made out of a modern/industrial piping system.

    This is an awesome aesthetic! It is really clean and busy at the same time. I think that indoor plants bring a lot of life into a living space. One issue that I have with the first picture is the fact that it would be crazy difficult to cook with so many plants nearby. I feel that I would be constantly bumping into things while trying to cut and cook. Even so, it is pretty cool to look at and hard not to find satisfying even if you are having to walk carefully!

    I honestly love this aesthetic. It’s similar to the aesthetic I used for my hydroponics system although I didnt realize it’s actually a thing. Very cool!
