Simple and Playful
Sao Paulo-based sculptor and artist Priscilla Ramos crafts ceramic planters that resemble whales, capybaras, foxes, and even sloths. Their shapes and colors are kept simple enough so they don’t scream at you from right across the room, but still add an adorably interesting touch to any home. [Photos from Lost at E Minor]
If you’re really looking to unleash your wild side, you better check out Coastal Moss on Etsy. You’ll find the most charming looking planters sculpted as animals with great expressions on their faces and in all sorts of brilliant, bright colors.
Bright colors and toy-like designs are great for children’s bedrooms, but what if you want something that’s a little more grown-up and classy? Have a look at the stunning animal planters offered by Two Trees Botanicals on Etsy. While you’ll still find a few that come in bright colors, you can find others in more decorative colors like gold and bronze, which may better suit your decor.
As if you didn’t think these animal planters could get any more adorable, the Yarn Kitchen on Etsy makes them out of felt to give them a textured, fuzzy look — as if they were indeed real animals. They come as pod-shaped planters with Japanese design-inspired faces of puppies, kittens, chicks, and more.
Taking inspiration from taxidermy animal heads that are typically hung on walls, ceramic animal head planters are available from Graham and Green. You can get them in the forms of all sorts of different wild creatures, from polar bears and rabbits, to zebras and koalas. Plants and flowers grow right out of the tops of their heads, and the best part of it all? They’re not real, so no hunting and killing required!
Some of the animal planters in this list resemble very realistic looking creatures, but what if you’re looking for a more animated, cartoonish look? Claylicious on Etsy has it covered. The animal planters offered by this shop have exaggerated looks that make them appear more whimsical and playful. They also come in all sorts of great colors too.
Did you just experience cute overload? You’re not the only one. Any of these adorable animal planters would most certainly bring a nice dose of whimsy to any room that could use a little creative accessorizing.
