Last month I joined the Urban Jungle series by Igor (Happy Interior Blog) and Judith (JOELIX.com) for the first time. Every month they share ideas about how you can create an urban jungle by showing DIY’s, styling ideas and lots of tips. Everyone can join so I thought, why not? I like to have a monthly post with a topic I’m interested in.

The Urban Jungle Bloggers challenge for this month is to create a plantshelfie. Have you heard about this term before? It’s actually a shelf decorated with plants and pots. You can call it a stage for all your plants.
When I received this months challenge I had to think because we don’t have many shelfs at home. I’ve got one above my bed but that’s a small and short one and we’ve got one in our kitchen. To be honest, the shelf in our kitchen is something I get annoyed about every day. Because I think that nothing looks good on that shelf. Maybe it’s not the shelf but the empty space around it.
I should hang something on the wall to see if it makes things better but for now I just wait and see how long I like my plantshelfie in the kitchen ;-)
I love copper in an interior. For me it doesn’t have to be to striking in an interior but a few copper details are perfect.
My plantshelfie has a few new and old items on it. First of all (from left to right) you see an plant we got last year when we moved into this small cottage. Next to that is a new copper pot with a new very green plant, a pumpkin from my dad’s garden, a big wooden cutting board (made by dad), crockery we send from Vietnam to Holland when we were travelling, a small yellow vase from Loods5 and a plant that is recovering from his time in the bathroom.
I decorated my plantshelfie with warm colors from autumn, a season I really love because of the falling leaves and colors. I’m not a big fan of warm earth colors in my home for ever but around this time of the year I think they fit well.
Did you read my last post for Urban Jungle Bloggers with flowers and plants? I photographed our living room with a few new flowers in it.
If you also would like to join this really cool community, go and visit the website of Urban Jungle Bloggers and subscribe. Even if you haven’t got the time every month, you can join too! I see it as an opportunity to look at my interior a different way and change a bit again.
Do you have many plants at home or are you very bad in keeping them and thinking about giving them water and stuff? ;-)
