Raise your hand if you’re a plant-loving metrosexual! Late last week I wrote about Vitamine Plant for Men, a great campaign by Bloemenbureau Holland to promote plants…well, for men! I’ve been getting used to having plants at home again this year – you might remember that ivy I got last spring (barely six months have passed by and my living room already looks totally different hmmm). Oh, and I bought my friend Oliver a ficus ginseng this summer.
I am now the proud owner of a Ficus ‘Anouk’, a Coffea Arabica, an Agave, a Myrtillocactus and a Sarracenia. Which might sound like a lot of work but these plants look pretty low maintenance. Just the way this man likes them. I thought I’d put them all on top of a neon artwork I got from Kunstuitleen Rotterdam. Pretty great result, huh? I love it how the makeover of my living room provided me with a more or less empty slate to start over again. No more knick knacks, no more tschotches. This extremely masculine and virile man with lots of testosterone is going for plants and there’s no way of stopping him.
