Understated DIY Planters

A small planter on your office desk is understated in itself. But a minimal planter that is even smaller or blends into the backdrop feels even more minimal in style. The hanging brass planters combine metallic glint with modern refinement and a bit of mid-century style to pack quite a punch even while quietly remaining in the backdrop. The mini lava rock planter is something you can buy off the shelf or draw inspiration from and create your own replica. With the Mini Pinch Pot Planters you get a bit more rustic allure and maybe even some geo style; if you get the pattern right.
