I've had a thing for String of Pearl plants since college. They remind me of the Midwest for some reason. When I was thinking about plants to add to my wine crate corner I first thought of just putting small succulents in them but that didn't feel exciting enough for a place like...the bedroom. Hehe.
This is the corner behind one of our French doors that felt underutilized. The crates on the wall helped create a little bit of storage and turned our dirty laundry basket corner into something less mundane. I found the vintage filing cabinet at a thrift store last year and loved the details. It's not really a traditional item in the bedroom but that's another reason I love it. I use it to stash out of season clothing and it doubles as a plant stand so I'd say it's earning it's keep in there.
The large gold candle was a sweet gift from Elsie, Emma, and Katie, the brownie was my grandparents', the Chinese box was thrifted, the smaller candle was just a simple votive that I spray painted with some metallic spray paint, the white vase is from IKEA, and the wire file basket was thrifted.
What I love about this corner is how the plants helped create a little drama and added to the composition with their unique shapes. The spikes of the bottom plant contrast nicely with the smooth, curved leaves of the one above and even the little cactus on top adds a little something way up there. I like dramatic plants.
I like small space solutions even more.
