Beaux Faux: Vintage Book Planters!

I want to show you guys my new favourite homeware addition, the vintage book planter!  Isn’t she beautiful!

I’ve started thinking about how I can incorporate more greenery into my home to liven it up a little.  It’s been difficult as our main living space (living room, kitchen and bathroom) are all in the basement of our flat and so it’s quite dark (especially in the winter) and not great for plants, so when I found this little ornament I was over the moon.

It’s a vintage book with a gorgeous succulent plant arranged beautifully inside.  Not only is it perfect for me as I adore books, but the succulent is actually artificial and so will last a lifetime.  

I’ve been after something like this for a really long time and so it was a coincidence when I found out one of my best friend’s mums actually owns a business where she creates beautiful succulent arrangements.  Her company is called Beaux Faux (you see the her website here) and she also sells them on Not On The Highstreet (link).

What’s nicer is that if there’s a specific category of book you would like she can hunt one down to match your requirements and you can also choose if you’d like just plain words or an image on the displayed page.  She chose out a map for me (my favs) and I just adore it.  I’ve even been thinking these might make gorgeous mini centrepieces at my wedding!

Prices start from £29.50 which I think is fab, I’m actually going to get one for my Mum this Mother’s Day (last orders for that is tomorrow).  

Would you like these in your home?
