Greening up the Apartment

Here's a little secret for you.  I kill a lot of houseplants.

Lennie and Carra try to make me feel better about it, telling me that it's different when you're not watering, feeding, and weeding your plants every day like its your job.  But that doesn't change the fact that I would really like to live in a space that is overflowing with greenery.  So maybe I could try a little harder.

There are several spots in the apartment and outside that I would like to tackle.  I started to list them out here and realized I was basically describing every bare space in our glorified studio apartment.

This past weekend I stumbled upon images of a plant shop in the Lower East Side, Green Fingers, that got me motivated to actually do something about this project.

Elements I want to incorporate:

  • Terracotta pots.  Lots of them.
  • Shades of green paint (outside).
  • Branches with Lichen + Air Plants

It'll probably take a few weekends to amass the plants, pots, and wall hanging accouterments I'll need to get this going, but I'm excited to get started.  I'll post pics as soon as I have something to show for myself!
