day 200 – four fireplace plants

Living in a lovely little seafoam green Victorian cottage in New Orleans means that every ounce of my day is infused with a distinctive blend of old world charm and fresh, progressive inspiration. My Four for the Day collection this week will reflect how the small touches that blend the gritty and the beautiful are some of the most awe-inspiring imaginable.

I thought I would deviate a bit from the norm (but will return!) by shooting four of the diverse plants (among several) that make up the  “fireplace garden” in my living room. Adding greenery and warmth to a non-working exposed brick fireplace is the notion: a way to add a bit of lightness without the help of gas logs. A Lavender bush, Bromeliad and two Cacti make eclectic, yet comfortable, bedfellows.
