Creating a narrative in your space

What is life without some drama? Your spaces could use some of it too! Take into consideration a small corner at home. Let's say the bookshelf for example and see how you could revamp it and make it into a corner that tells a story with the use of planters only!

What better than a bookshelf to create a narrative through decor products. Right?
a nook that takes you into fantasy land through books and now through planters.

You don't always have to dedicate the entire bookshelf to books, encyclopaedias or magazines. Adding in your very own storyline could be a fun way of bringing the fantasy world to life. Let's see how!

So to introduce some colour into the space, get your hands on some adorable animal planters or those like the little boys and girls in the image above.
