This is a great way to bring plants indoors.

Plants are a delightful way to bring some color and life into your home. They are not only an excellent addition to your decor, they also help clean the environment and air around them.

For all the good houseplants do for you, the least you can do is give them their own good-looking home. Ceramicists and decor brands agree and have been cooking up some truly original planter designs.

As always, however, we here at OBN prefer to create our own planters.
