Five Ways to Bring the Garden Indoors this Winter


Temperatures are dropping and in most parts of the country, those outdoor gardens will be settling down for a long winter’s nap. That doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to all your plant friends, however. If you haven’t yet applied your green thumb to the interior of your home, here are 5 ways to get started.

The Conversation Piece

One way to instantly enliven a room and boost its character is to bring in a striking and/or unusual plant. Of course, choosing the right planter is half the battle. Go for something understated that enhances the individuality of your plant.

Bring Life to those Corners

Perhaps the most overlooked spaces in the home are those lonely corner spots. It doesn’t take a genius to throw some greenery into that nook!

Small Accents

There’s more to shelves and side tables than glassware and candles. A small planter is just the thing to bring more personality to a dull shelf. The possibilities are endless – delicate flowers, hardy succulents, or even a tiny wandering vine will do the trick.

Go Big or Get Out

Don’t be timid when it comes to your greenery. A large shrub or small tree can find a happy home inside as well as out. Think of it as a living and strictly decorative piece of furniture.

Project Spotlight: Pomarius Nursery and the Shaw House

Pomarius Nursery is a large-scale retail nursery in Portland with a selection of plants and an eye for design that keeps local gardeners coming back for more.


What really sets Pomarius apart, however is their knack for landscaping and garden design. The team recently had the opportunity to work with Maison Inc. on the spectacular renovation of the Shaw House.

The Shaw House was designed by Portand starchitect John Yeon in 1950 for Lawrence Shaw. Considered one of Yeon’s residential masterpieces, the home was featured on the cover of House Beautiful in 1953. Since then, unfortunately, the Shaw House fell into a sad state of disrepair.

Now, however, the home has been resurrected to its former glory with the help of Maison Inc. and the Pomarius Nursery.  Pomarius was in charge of the new landscape and garden design, which was handled beautifully. The Case Study Ceramic planters they chose seem to coalesce perfectly into the simple modernist landscape.
