Sky Planters

Bring the outdoors in is definitely one of the latest décor trends at the moment.

Hanging gardens are the next big thing and, whilst there are hundreds of different methods on the market, I really love the Boskke Sky Planter

from Emile-et-Son in Parkhurst.

I spotted them at this year’s Johannesburg Decorex and it really is an ingenious little device that allows for gravity-defying gardening!

It’s an upside-down planter that hangs from the ceiling and uses a nifty drainage system that ensures a no-mess, no-fuss way to keep your house green.

It’s available in 3 sizes and 2 colours (black and white) and the pricing ranges from R350-R850 per planter.

A funky idea  would be to cluster a few of them together to create a ‘mini-chandelier’ kind of look. Use different sized pots and a variety of plants.

These would also be great to hang in your kitchen and use for herbs.

The best thing about these planters is that they allow you the opportunity to place plants in areas where you don’t have the space for a plant eg. bathrooms, balconies, patios.

The possibilities are endless but, however you decide to use them, these planters are sure to create an impression!
