A mini oasis with Tina Frey Designs

JOELIX.com | A mini oasis with Tina Frey Designs + giveaway

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may already know Tina Frey Designs. I first discovered the brand at Maison & Objet in Paris and completely fell for the sensual designs in resin and their handmade feel. This Spring they are launching a beautiful new Urban Garden Collection with planters and swings (!) in the same incredible resin they’re known for.

As an Urban Jungle Blogger with more than 150 plants, I'm always on the lookout for new planters for my every growing jungle. I particularly love the feel of this large bowl: it is handsculpted and I just cannot stop touching it. The size is perfect for several smaller plants that don't need a lot of depth, like succulents or cacti, my favorites! And the good thing is, you can "feel" this bowl too, as I am giving away the same large bowl to one lucky winner!

For this special project, I got myself a new little plant: a Lithops: a "living stone" succulent that, I think, looks a lot like Waldof (one of the old men) from The Muppet Show 😉 Together with some homegrown succulents and cacti that I collected, I decided to turn the bowl into a little succulent garden.

This is how I created a mini oasis in this Tina Frey Designs bowl: a plastic liner (to avoid scratches from the pebbles), a layer of small pebbles for drainage, soil and plants. Easy peasy:

I've noticed that if you plant different succulents together in a bowl or plant pot, they tend to grow bigger. And it also looks so much cuter than just one lonely plant:

  1. Wow that looks very cool! Your succulents grow bigger!? Mine died when i put them together in a frame :(
    Just had a look at the Tina Frey Design products and my favourite is the green hanging square vessel.

  2. Hi Judith,

    you have chosen a wonderful bowl to plant your succulents! I would chose the same and even try to arrange the succulents as you did! I also like the Hanging Square Vessel in white of Tina Frey!
    Have a nice, sunny day!

  3. I love the Hanging Square Vessel 15 in turquoise. I've been looking for simple and beautiful planters for my succulents to mature in.

  4. I love the striped square vessels! I love the soft, roundness of the corners while still having a rectangular shape. And the stripes of course!

    Thank you for this giveaway, Judith! Have you ever tried carnivorous plants? Mexican pinguicula are a lot like succulents and would do fantastically in the large bowl! If I win, that's what I'm putting mine in. :)

  5. i am obsessed with her jewelry, i saw a necklace a long time ago at the art museum in chicago and still regret not buying it! i've been saving my pennies!

  6. This is a great idea and we'll executed :) I love the bench and bowls from Tina Frey Designs Shop but my favorite is the hanging vessel 12 :)

  7. Wow. This is so pretty. I've tried replanting my succulents but they mostly died :( Going to try again soon.

  8. I wouldn't even be able to decide what to do with the bowl – use it as a planter or just put pretty things in it! So pretty.
    My favourite in the Tina Frey shop is the beautiful “Hanging Square Vessel 20” in green.

  9. Oh wow! This bowl is a beaut! Love the simplicity and organic feel of it (and most of her products!) I've just recently spruced up an old enamel bowl to do the same thing with succulents but I think I'd definitely do the same with this bowl! Desperately trying to get better at keeping plants alive and lush so this is the right kind of incentive I need to get my bout of green fingers! :)

  10. Oh I would love to win this. Love al of Tina's work, always need new planters too. If I had to have a favourite it would be the pedestal plate. Love!

  11. That bowl is beautiful! My favorite piece is the Pedestal Egg Cup, I miss eating egg and soldiers… It was one of my regular breakfasts in England but I stopped when I moved here.

  12. Love everything on this site but if I had to pick it would be the hanging plant holder square vessel! 🌵
