After you’ve carefully designed your interior spaces with essentials like furniture, drapery, lighting and rugs, it’s time to start concerning yourself with adding character and personality to the home with placement of decorative accessories. Nobody knows your client better than you do, and you can use this to your advantage by selecting decor with a story. Don’t leave it to a magazine or website to tell you what they will like — go out and discover it! From our travels overseas for Unique Finds and design inspiration, Gabby has found and brought to market a truly remarkable collection of distressed earthenware.
Our Gabby Pottery Collection features one-of-a-kind, antique-finished pieces that have been crafted from first-rate earthenware to ensure the end results can hold up in the harsh conditions of extreme climates. The potters high fire the pieces individually until they are frost proof and ready to be fully enjoyed from inside and outside the home.
There’s something about hand-made pottery that adds a genuine sense of authenticity to a space. Whether it’s simple or intricate, small or large, every piece of pottery is a unique work of art. If you are thinking about incorporating earthenware into your décor, here are a few ways to make it great.
Use pottery to incorporate your favorite plants into your interior. Since many people have to deal with limited garden space, designers are starting to rely more on creating living displays inside the home. Whether you’re working with a single windowsill or an open sunroom, mixing forms, textures, and colors with houseplants can have visually stunning results.
We think the container itself is equally as important as the plant inhabiting it. Proper proportions and scale can mean the difference between bland and attractive. Our Kos Jar with Lugs is over four feet tall — in light, open spaces, this architectural piece is ideal for a large-sized plant.
For a natural connection, place similar plants inside and outside where both sides are visible. These days, the succulent phase is in full swing, and we are delighted! Succulents are fun and unique, but beyond that, they are drought tolerant, require very little water, and can be enjoyed both indoors and out. Best of all, their versatility combines well with many other types of grasses and plants.
For your indoor succulents, consider Gabby’s French Pottery Planters. The rustic earthenware isn’t strikingly different than soil, which evokes a soothing feeling of connection between the outdoor landscape and your home. Try placing a Gabby planter on either side of a spacious window for a united effect.
Play up the textures of different foliage types. Choosing a uniform planter style to contain all your houseplants is a fantastic way to showcase the various textures, forms, and foliage types. For example, try lining a hall in this manner for a unique passageway.
Achieve a similar style with our Lotus Pond Planters. The planter itself is simple, but still stylish. Essentially, this stately planter gives the stage to the true stars — the plants themselves!
