I’m so super excited to be introducing you to our new spin-off magazine called Planted, showcasing the latest in plant-related products and trends, and ideas for stylish, urban outdoor spaces.
Planted magazine is not just about plants – it’s about how we live inside and out, with greenery enhancing our everyday lives. We showcase the very best creations to do that – whether it’s beautiful planters, contemporary outdoor furniture, glamorous garden tools, fun beach accessories or spaces made modish by plants. I wanted to share a little taste of what's inside this brand new issue, available for pre-order now in our online shop (for a late November delivery), and in newsagents December 5. I’m going to see how Planted is received, and hopefully it will be produced 1-2 times each year, depending on its popularity.
Gracing our front cover, is super stylist Julia Green pictured at her own home. I love the vertical garden created by Pippi’s Plants out on her deck. It’s an effective way to make an ordinary wall, extraordinary.
Another highlight in this issue is Nicola’s balcony with killer Melbourne views (you can’t see the view in this image above - but trust me, it’s amazing). Nicola runs homewares brand Luum, and you may recognise her daybed, cushions and painted pots in this image.
This issue also explores three hot plant trends - succulents (pictured above), plants with black foliage and tropical delights. Plus there’s a tonne of awesome products to help showcase your plants, whether that’s inside or out, and also plenty of finds to beautify your outdoor space.
Rupert Smith’s industrial loft in Cape Town (pictured above) has been transformed into a lush oasis with an abundance of indoor foliage. This home proves that even if you don’t have an outdoor space, it’s still possible to create a connection to the outdoors by bringing in fresh foliage and an abundance of indoor plants.
