In Full Swing
Air planters flash back to the ’70s
American Hustle-inspired plunging necklines and voluminous disco hair. Now you can add macramé plant holders to the growing list of ’70s trends we’re psyched are coming back.
Those funky, knotted hangers are getting a major update through Thrifted & Made.
Sydney-born artist Kate Sluman, who’s based in the South Bay, uses cords in neon colors instead of old-school neutral shades and hand-paints the planters and repurposed pods in cheerful hues like aqua, gold and pastel pink. She also decorates stand-alone (non-hanging) planters with artsy motifs--oh, hello, black and gold dotted chevron offering ($16).
Equally fabulous is how low-maintenance the plants are. Go for a standard tillandsia or the more sprawling xerographica, hang it in a bright spot with indirect sunlight and submerge the plant in water every few weeks. Groovy.
