1. Raise it up! If you don't have a huge amount of work surface space in your kitchen or dining space, hanging your plants could make for a stylish and simple solution. In the space shown below, for example, suspended plants hang beautifully in front of a well-framed gallery wall; the resulting space is the perfect blend of curated and bohemian.
Of course, you don't have to hang them per se; rather, as per this space, you could simply position them on an up-high shelf.
2. Adorn your window sills If you've got deep sills, add extra interest to them by layering up pots of fresh herbs and your favourite scented candles.
Whether you opt for a minimal display of two or three plants or an over-flowing array of frothy greenery, it's a simple yet effective way to add extra character to your cook-space.
3. Opt for a high-low approach Keep the interest flowing throughout your cook-space by displaying your plants both high-up and low-down, as demonstrated in the space below...
You don't need to hang them; as shown in this space, high shelving and low surfaces can make for a perfectly stylish combination. Same goes for lighting, really; smaller table lamps can be smarty paired with intricate high-hanging light fittings.
4. Shelve it! If your kitchen has an empty shelf or two, consider turning them into a micro greenhouse by creating gorgeous rows of potted plants.
For extra interest - and to avoid greenery overload - combine your plants with other decorative details; think crockery, small framed prints and other ornaments.
5. Think upwards We love this idea! Shallow shelving that follows the height of the cupboard it's next to adds a stylish, curated finish to this sleek cook-space.
Again, containers of fresh herbs have a dual functionality; not only do they smell great but they could also be useful for cooking, too. Win-win, no?
