Living with plants (and cats)

Posted on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 by KiM

While moving from gate to gate at the Puerto Vallarta airport (they are so freaking disorganized) a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across this apartment in the latest issue of Elle Decoration Mexico. I have an obsession with plants, which is pretty hilarious considering I am only mediocre at keeping them alive, so this home really drew me in. It is the Auckland, New Zealand home of stylist Charlotte Rust and it is filled with plants! And a couple of cats! The contrast between the raw, lifeless concrete and the beautiful greenery is lovely. This is a perfect example of how you can easily warm up a space. Plants always help. So do cats. ­čÖé (Perfectly captured by photographer by Jessica MacCormick)

Thank you for wanting to be a contributor Robin but Jo and I are very hands-on and do all of the blogging ourselves.

Although I love art in the bathroom, I didn't like at all the religious icons there…They would look much better in a living-room or in the bedroom!
