In Love With Succulents...

Does anyone else out there love the sophisticated look of succulents in interiors?  I think it's so much more interesting than the typical house plant.  Maybe it's because I like low maintenance plants, but more and more often I love the look of succulents in design settings.  Take a look at these great examples:

I love the organic feel of this table display - especially
when they are in those rough containers.

I always fall for an urn, especially when the image gives a new use for one! 
You can read more about urns here.

 Wow, what an awesome industrial-feeling table!  I love how the succulent
gets a modern look when put in this fresh white vase.

{via Providence Ltd.}
What a cute idea!  Pick up some vintage silver chamapagne glasses
and some small succulents - instant sparkle and earthiness combined.

What a great contrast here against the wood, silver and ethnic feel of the ikat. 
Very cool combo.

OK so I am reposting a picture I already used when I wrote about Kitchen Kick Starts,
but I couldn't resist.  I think a low, wide bowl filled with
succulents on a kitchen counter looks just great.

I have never used these, but they are soooo pretty. Love the color and texture....I can't wait to try them. What a great idea for a post!

I used to love "hens and chicks" when I was a child...I could grow them without them dying on me ...but then I studied horticulture and can now grow a lot of things without them dying on me....yay!!

Hi Barbara, I just found your blog and think this is a great post. I have a black thumb and should look into succulents. The more "low maintenance" the better!

Absolutely love succulents. I have a long rustic wood container on a farm table on my porch filled with succulents. The low maintenance aspect of it just makes me smile.

I LOOOVE succulents too, these are some great pictures! The former Smith & Hawken (RIP) had an AMAZING (yet pricey) living succulent wreath and I was always thinking maybe I could make one myself. I love the picture with the succulents in the delicate silver bowls.
