I was completely inspired by a modern farmhouse that was pictured In the May issue of Better Homes & Gardens. The house was styled by Jill Sharp Brinson. I’ve been a huge fan of Jill and her work ever since I had the pleasure to meet her last year in Atlanta.
While I love so many of the home’s details, I was especially drawn to the front porch. Instead of using big planters, Jill opted for baskets. Filled mostly with greens, they added such warmth and texture and gave the space a casual, homey look.
While shopping at HomeGoods a few weeks ago I found two large baskets and a couple plastic planters that fit perfectly inside. I immediately thought of Jill’s work and just had to bring them home with me. Using a drill, bricks, potting soil, plus some gorgeous plants, I created totally unique basket planters of my own.
