In life, there are cacti … And we can say that for some time, they are everywhere. Coming from another continent, these strange beings have already conquered many adepts of decoration.
Whether plant accumulation, printed on the cushions of the sofa, or framed on a wall of the dining room, we love their exotic side. After the Nordic trend, this time the direction of the Mexican desert! Inspirations.
Botanical in the rough
In our interiors, our cactus friends are available in a multitude of decorative styles. The soul of a collector? Like a cabinet of curiosities, they are gathered in mini format on a shelf, taking care to vary the species and colors. Passionate about contemporary art, we fall for tree shapes or columns like cereus and we do not hesitate to choose the format XXL, like a sculpture.
For dressing, all tastes are allowed – or almost! Assorted in beautiful baskets of natural fibers (straw, wicker), adorned with pots with ethnic motifs or personalized oneself (mosaic, fabric, cement tiles, …), the possibilities are endless.
The good idea: recycle old containers (old porcelain mug, glass jars, vintage tea cans, kraft paper coffee bags …).
Whether at home or in the office, the cactus is our ally! It even lends itself to depolluting virtues: it seems that it would reduce the electromagnetic fields of our devices. All the more reason to place a little one next to the TV or computer.
And if you do not have a green thumb, do not panic! Originally from arid regions, these little animals are not very greedy and will even let you go on vacation. That takes away a beautiful thorn! Find our maintenance tips for your favorite cactus.
The cactus makes a good impression
Available in all shades and in all styles, the cactus is displayed on your walls. Framed as a still life, we like to play on scale and framing. Photography, illustration, collage, many artists have succumbed to the cactus-attitude.
We can mix different graphic treatments around our subject, realizing a nice accumulation of frames on a wall.
Do you prefer the total look? We then choose the wallpaper to travel directly from his living room. The creators are not lacking in imagination and today we find a variety of patterns. Be careful, however, not to fall into the bidding: a wall or two are usually enough to set the tone, no need to do too much!
There are also wall stickers new generation of different styles, to stick on both sides of a piece of furniture in a dining room for example, to give it a fresh and sparkling effect.
Of all the plants, these beautiful spicy with the tender heart definitively conquered the lovers of decoration. We are on THE inescapable trend of summer. And where the cactus excels, it is of course in the textile decor. All the rooms in the house go by: printed cushions for the lounge chair, kitchen towels, bath towels in the bathroom … In the children’s room, we choose a beautiful soft carpet with naive patterns. We find a nice bedspread for the parental suite, in a shades of soft greens to give pep’s in the morning.
For some time, we also witnessed the great return of the embroidery drum. Why not try it on the theme of the cactus? With its rounded and minimalist shapes, its colorful tones, the effect is guaranteed.In accumulation on a wall, these small round canvases will bring poetry and lightness in your decoration.
From needle to needle, we can also opt for the knitting. In a completely modernized style, we find with pleasure the little man of our childhood, through which pass the wool thread. With the cord so knitted, we customize its baskets of a few words, we draw the silhouette of a pretty cactus that hangs on the wall. The idea is to have fun. This is the Do It Yourself trend of the moment. And if we lack patience, no worries! There are now all-automated knitters on which you just have to turn a crank. So it’s up to you to play!
Spicy in my decor
But the world of cacti does not stop there. Declined with all the sauces, they transport us already on holidays and give to our daily life a small spicy taste which stimulates. A neon lamp with electric green highlights to brighten a cold corner of the room, just perfect to spice up the mood. A night light with soft shapes for the sleeping area of ??your toddler, that’s a bright idea! Looking for a caliente atmosphere *? We warm up its winter decor with a collection of small ceramic cactuses. We can even add some to our botanical collection to make shapes and materials games.
In the same spirit, there are also pretty vases, that can be sorted easily. Very design in pure white, they will marry wonderfully with stems of dried flowers. Gypsophila for a small air side, or craspedias for a pop and graphic rendering …
In addition to the graphic aspect of the cactus, we also put a lot on the practical side. You will find a lot of accessories to organize the everyday: pencil pot, coat hooks, jewelry holders, boxes of storage … The list is far from exhaustive.
In the kitchen, this is an opportunity to renew coffee services and move to more summer dishes. We fall for stylized reasons that will not fail to add spice to the plate! Faced with the existing choice, impossible that you have the same as your neighbor. Seen on the web: a cactus dispenser of capsules for your coffee machine. No more bazaar: ordered yes, but classy please.
In anticipation of the long summer days, we fall for a statue of euphorbia size to install on the terrace, accompanied by a light garland. Take off immediately for Central America, without moving the comfort of its deckchair …
