Home Inspiration: Radiator Shelf (+plants)

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Lately I’ve been thinking about creating a cool little green-spot near our living room windows for autumn and winter. I don’t know what it is, but as soon as the cooler season kicks in, I always crave greenery around. Is it just me? So last week I spotted this awesome radiator solution that I can not wait to try. I even asked my friend Paul the florist for tips on what kind of flowers/plants like radiator warmth.
Here are his 5 top radiator friendly plants:
- Orchids
- Jade
- Ferns
- Calendula
- Mother’s Tongue

Lovelies, do you have a radiator shelf in your home? What do you keep on top of it? xo

P.S: Remember colourful radiators?
P.P.S: And this Parisian green wall still makes me swoon!

Genius diana. My ugly radiators drive me nut lately and this is such a pretty solution. Ola

ps: I am with you on craving all things green during winter.

Ooh how lovely of you to find out!
I love these shelves when they're a gorgeous slab of oak or marble! I don't have shelves over them but I do have books stacked on mine - maybe I should be careful of heat damage - eek!

So cool! We just have baseboard radiators in our house, so there isn't much we can do to beautify them. ;-)

Super pretty! We don't have radiators but we have these ledges where our windows are "cut into" the house and there's quite a lovely and generous "shelf" for a cat-butt or our cactus forest.

Love the vase with the skull!

Stephanie, my friend has those too and she is thinking about covering them and creating a little sitting nook around them.
