Urban Jungle Bloggers #4

Thank you for taking a moment to visit me today. I know December is such a busy month, but I'm glad you took a little break to check our Urban Jungle Bloggers posts! Igor and I decided upon styling a green festive decoration vignette, so here we are!

When I took all my plants from our greenhouse to their winter storage a few weeks ago, I thought it would be nice to put some in our cinema room in stead. To make them blend in with our bright interior, I wrapped all their planters in basic white paper. I started with my dear apple tree and couldn't stop wrapping, it's really addictive. I felt so very Christo x Martin Margiela 😉

To the thirty plants I wrapped, I added some very simple decoration: no *bling-bling* but basic white candles, a few hyacint bulbs, a light string and a couple of pine branches. I very much liked our real christmas tree last year, so I'll probably untangle some light strings this weekend and put up the wooden xmas tree as well. Very cat-safe!

Oh and I couldn't helpt but add some Lego trees and a snowman at the roots of my apple tree 😉

  1. Oh I love it so much, Judith! So festive and so perfect for your beautiful, colourful home. Love the juxtaposition of a traditional colour scheme (green and red) and the modern, different interpretation (with succulents and cacti). Fab!

    1. After shooting the images I realized it is indeed such a traditional color scheme… and made me totally want to get rid of those Ikea Lack shelves. I do like the String shelves, but they're a lot smaller and I think we could use something bigger (and bolder). Any suggestions?

  2. Hi Judith, I am following this urban jungle project since the beginning and always wanted to tell you I'd love to join in.
    So far did not have much time to say it, but finally I made it here. Tell me all about it
    This time is ever so nice!
    Christo x Martin Margiela is so spot on!
    well done

    1. Merci beaucoup Nathalie, ça fait plaisir :) Si ça te dit d'y participer (ce mois-ci ou dans les mois à venir), dis-moi et je t'enverrai le mini-kit avec plus d'infos.

  3. I love how your vignette turned out. You have combined all the traditional colors in a cool modern way. The red shelves, with the green and the white. Perfect. Also it's so funny to see that we chose pretty similar color palette. I like that. ;)

    1. Oh yes, always something playful ;) We had so much fun with the Google doodle, didn't we! I've been wanting to create a new animated gif for weeks, but light & time are so limited… Have a nice end the of the week, Tina!
