Round rustic planter 

You can’t go wrong with something round, the spherical shape helps the flow of the room and adds visual interest to a space. The shape lends itself to both a minimal branch set up and a full bouquet of leaves so it’s a place to begin if you’re starting a collection.

An entrance hall calls for drama; after all first impressions are the most important. If you’re looking to go larger with the foliage you can keep the vessel easy and simple and offset with sculpture and additional shape and form.

A muted palette

White or dusty terracotta will work in most interior schemes, especially with a slight patina to the finish. Urns, jugs and oil pots are becoming ever more fashionable and enable an antique touch to enter the home in even the most modern of houses.
