Being stuck inside is slightly more enjoyable when you’re in a home you’ve designed just the way you like. And yes, part of that design can involve plants! You already know that plants are a great way to bring a bit of life and brightness into your space, and become even more important when you can’t go outside. But if you want to add even more good vibes to your home, pay special attention to your planters. A colorful pot or sunny basket can instantly enhance your room and add pleasant personality to a corner or tabletop. We rounded up some of the most cheerful planters you can get right now to create a home filled with lots of happy vibes.
