design obsession: modern planters

my husband and i were fortunate enough to spend the first few days of the new year in merry old england. whilst in london (whilst. hehe.), i became obsessed with these modern planters i saw on (what felt like) every doorstep...gracing the entrances of flats or outside of chic little boutiques. i thought i'd snap a few shots of these fabulous finds. they make even the most traditional of english hedges and topiaries feel fresh and updated. i wouldn't recommend them, however, with anything but the fullest of foliage. any sort of spacing would make these planters feel a bit sparse. i'm determined to find some to spruce up my sad little patio.
...happy sophisticating...

a slightly more organic look in wood

a very "glam" take on this trend...rhinestone covered! too fabulous.
