A Spiky Spring Trend
One of our favorite new trends in interiors is the sculptural drought-friendly cactus. Pineapples were popping up everywhere last season but the fruity-inspired boom is over and a new cactus trend is emerging. A longtime fixture in southwestern design, they’ve ventured beyond the usual warm-weather confines to interiors across the globe. We find the amazing architecture in Palm Springs to be a big contributor to the inspiration.
They’re a favourite of the non-green thumbs among us and have long been the go-to plant when all else fails. Cactus are hardy, easy-to-care for and look great on display in any room of the house.
Easy to care for and with many styling possibilities, a cactus is easy greenery with wow factor. One of the easiest ways to incorporate cactus into your interiors is to display the plant — and current trends dictate the bigger, the better. By opting to display a large-scale cactus in your space, you make it the room’s focal point; the object your eye goes to the moment you enter.
Taken outdoors and used in a repeat pattern, they are an exceptional design element. Nothing adds more texture and interest to a garden.
