Trendspotting: Head-Shaped Planters

If terra cotta planters in the shape of a head conjure images of chia pets, then you  haven't seen 
them lately!
The New Orleans Museum of Art recently commissioned flower arrangements in head-shaped containers for The Garden Club luncheon, and now you can have your own piece of New Orleans flair right here at Parterre!  
Head Planter, $48/ea
Our version of the planter is stylized and comes in terra cotta, which will gain patina with age.  Try topping them with flowers or succulents (or ferns, if you have a sense of humor).  Use one as a statement piece, or group several for more impact.  Ballard Designs has already picked up on the trend, and is featuring a classical terra cotta bust planter in their latest catalog.  Luckily, you can get the same great style right here in Monroe!

Here's how we would use them:

What We Love Now: April 2011 Edition


We're into mixing it up this April:  indoors and outdoors, high and low, traditional and modern, earthy and glam. Sadie has chosen her favorite things for April that blur the lines a little bit, and make your space extraordinary!

 1.  Never worry about replacing wilting flowers again with these Green Berry Balls atop white porcelain cachepots from Paris.
Green Berry Balls, $14/ea; Parisian Porcelain Cachepots w/ Jester Plume $225/ea
 2.  We love everything glam and gilded!  This Rectangular Gilded Cachepot is a customer favorite... and it's our favorite too!
Rectangular Guilded Cachepot, $325
3.  We also love down-to-earth designs, like this Glazed Square Container.  Wouldn't this make a cute gift for Spring?
Cream Glazed Square Planter, $48
4.  How about a little faux bois to mix things up?  This Beaujon Armchair is perfect, indoors or out.
Beaujon Armchair, $425

5.  What Easter table is complete without a Bunny Topiary center or accent piece?
Bunny Topiary, $65
6.  Concrete and succulents is one of our favorite looks for planters right now.  What a great textural piece!
Concrete Planters and Succulents, $34
 7.  We have many beautiful, classic fountains at Parterre, but this little Frog Fountain caught our fancy for April because of the mix of classic styling and modern lines.
Frog Fountain, $235
8. Can you think of anything happier than this Antique Green Trestle Table with a heart cut-out detail in the base?
Antique Green Trestle Table, $675
.9.  A Tabletop Birdbath gives your feathered friends a place to enjoy the spring sun.
Tabletop Birdbath, Small $58, Large $120 (small shown)
