Fall has officially arrived, and I for one am excited. The weather is finally starting to cool off (goodbye, oppressive humidity), and I even saw a few colorful leaves in Central Park yesterday. Best of all, I can finally put my boots and sweaters back into heavy rotation.
This is also the perfect time to bring a little green into your home. Plants are a warm, homey element that adds a little life to any interior, especially in fall and winter. If you’re like me and missing a green thumb, just look for easy care varieties, such as succulents. It’s really hard to kill those guys – trust me!
I found a ton of unique planters on Etsy, so don’t settle for a boring terracotta pot!
