Is it a surprise that things are going green? That the tentacles of change are even reaching inside? Plants, once the scurge of the minimalist-matchy-matchy with too much resonance to hippies and patchouli are becoming the statement pieces of choice: Not only are they living pieces of art but they help the living too, cleaning the air and quite frankly, bringing joy.
With the advance of plants comes the prospect of their pots and there are some quirky gems out there…All three pics above come from Westelm ..these Llamas are shouting out for a large, multi shouldered cactus..
These three delights come from Anthropologie. Their size put them in the perfect Christmas present range. Am I too early??…but when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Or there’s the independent handmade option – definitely worth unearthing – these beauties come from Atelier Stella ceramics based in Brighton.

Who’s so good, she probably deserves a post all of her own…

It’s been a presence for a while – these things are never new – travelling the undercurrents, a throwback from the eighties: I can remember my Aunt and Uncle’s cries of distress at seeing my cousins razor cut take all those years ago – long on top, buzz cut sides and back. So radical for a girl – it was wild.
Now the frisson is changing into something tangible, a stronger scent on the wind, like the start of spring it’s the smell of change.
Call it a reaction to Weinstein, a claiming of freedom or a rejection of labels, these cuts are a statement.
They say I’m doing this because I like it. End of story.
