Houseplant Appreciation Day 2016

Urban Jungle Bloggers - Houseplant Appreciation Day

Did you know today is the official Houseplant Appreciation Day? Well, we as real Urban Jungle Bloggers believe that every day is a houseplant appreciation day but we do appreciate an official international day to celebrate our green roommates too!

To show our love and the incessant love and creativity of our green community, we have started a new Instagram channel for the Urban Jungle Bloggers in 2016: We will share your green images tagged with #urbanjunglebloggers on a daily basis to inspire everybody to live with more plants and to get creative with greens. We will also link back to your Instagram accounts of course. Follow us if you haven’t done so far – you can find us on Instagram as @urbanjungleblog.

We hope you will enjoy your day and appreciate your lovely houseplants even more! Maybe they deserve an extra bit of tending and love today?

Have a happy and green Houseplant Appreciation Day 2016!

#UJBXMAS second winner: Gitte Christensen

UJBXMAS-bannerWe are happy to announce the second winner of our #UJBXMAS photo contest on Instagram – the winner is stylist and shop owner Gitte Christensen from Objects & Use. We loved the Nordic vibe in her styling featuring a Christmas tree and lots of indoor plants. And we asked Gitte a few questions to share with all of us:

UJBXMAS-winner-Gitte-ObjectsUse1Can you tell us more about your Christmas styling?

The wining photo with the Christmas tree is from my design office “LOFT03” in Copenhagen. We had a Christmas party for friends and clients last week. The theme here is lots of white plus grey-blue styling props and lots of green plants. All the ornaments on the tree are white porcelain. We have a pile of green plants in all our window sills all year round, but they look nice together with the classic christmas tree. White hyacinths are giving a white touch to the green plants. And grey and white enamel cups keep the clean theme.

UJBXMAS-winner-Gitte-ObjectsUse2What is your Christmas decor tip with plants from a stylist’s perspective?

Keep it simple with the colours – on these christmas deco there is only used white and grey blues to make the green plants stand out. Put green plants you already have together in a plant family – to make a little christmas forrest.

UJBXMAS-winner-Gitte-ObjectsUse3What do you wish for 2015?

I wish for more great styling jobs and meeting new interesting people.

Thank you Gitte!
You can see more of Gitte on Objects & Use and her Instagram.
