Bringing greenery inside is important if you’re going to be spending a lot of time indoors. But don’t just focus on the plants.
A well-designed container “allows you to curate your plant choices to create something that feels special and personal,” said Aaron Booher, a principal at Future Green Studio, a landscape design firm in Brooklyn.
Begin by considering where it will be installed, how much space you have to fill and if you want the planter to stand out visually.
“Is it going to be a sculptural statement in a room or an outdoor space, or more of a subtle background element?” Mr. Booher asked, noting that in his home, he often puts houseplants in vintage pieces of art pottery.
You might want to group several containers together, Mr. Booher suggested: “I really like groupings of plants, because it allows you to create a mini landscape.”
