I finally received the 2017 IKEA catalog. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like I saw it pop up on my social media feed a month ago. One thing I did with last year’s catalog was peep at leafs. I have a thing for indoor plants. I don’t know why, but I seeing them in catalogs and those “home tour” pics.
Let’s take a look at the plants in IKEA’s latest catalog!

It doesn’t have any plants, but looking at it, I am reminded of my high school art classroom–the cement floor, the natural lighting, the cluttered organization.

I faithfully watered it every week, because I was told to and I am inherently a rule follower. The leaves started to shrivel. (You’re not supposed to water them THAT often, unless they truly need it.) The teacher told me about the distress the plant was in. And, despite being counseled on my plant care, the jade still suffered. I think the teacher was annoyed.
If you need help with your green thumb, IKEA even included tips and tricks:
This isn’t a plant, but I feel like this chair captures the tropical essence a lot of indoor plants have.
Oh, and proof that I’m not the only leaf-peeper out there, IKEA included this pic:
Take a pic, then put it on a shelf:
There you have it! Now I have the urge to buy a few more plants, paint some pots, and relish in the fresh and natural feeling plants bring to a space.
