THE BEAUTIFUL PLANTERS OF CAPRA DESIGNS

Get some of the most stylish planters in the world, exclusively in Singapore at Tumbleweed!

Capra Designs produce some of the best looking planters around. Run by Melbourne-based artist, Bianca Lambert, Capra's planters have been a showcase range for us for the last two years and are gaining a stellar reputation in the US market. Their planters are currently available only in Australia, the US and Singapore (through yours truly!)

Their latest collection, Back to Nature, incorporates the sleek lines, simple shapes and earthy colours of Mid-Century Modern design in the desert climate of Palm Springs. And we love the designs!

First launched in our stores in May, Capra's Etch Pots, Banjo Pots and Hanging Dome Planters have been hugely popular with our customers, so we're delighted to have just restocked the collection, with each of the beautiful designs now available again in our stores!

What's Hot

What's Hot

Hope you've been enjoying checking out the new range of planters we launched in our webstore 2 weeks ago!

These are the ones that have been selling quickest so far...

*Top Choice* Freckle Pots - We absolutely agree with you on this one! It's a great looking pot with a beautiful textured finish and its neutral tones pair well with almost all plants. 

Large Painted Cement Pots - We had a feeling these would be popular given their size and the matching trays, which take a bit of the work out of watering.

Terrazzo Cubes - Ditto, the tray is a nice plus to a very funky looking pot.

Capra Designs' Etch Pots - Our premium collection from Capra Designs take pride of place on our website and in our stores. You've been loving these Desert Modernism themed pots.

Baobab Vase - These hand carved wooden vases are a great statement piece and you've been in the mood to make a statement!

Buddu Planter - We've got two different sizes available and they've both been proving popular.

Cape Town Planter - These pedestal planters are big and heavy and a fantastic way to display living room plants. Good choice (clap clap)

Jelly Cup Pots - When you've needed a cute pot for a succulent, these have been the most popular choice.

Industrial Plant Stands - A new stand that's BIG! Big enough to house a big leafy plant at home.

We've also had a terrific response to the launch of our rewards program, with many of you already claiming your first cute planters as a free gift! Now you can earn everytime you shop with us - even more temptation to get some more plants into your home :) Have you signed up and started collecting your seeds yet??

PLANT STYLING TIPS!

PLANT STYLING TIPS!
We were told growing up that it’s not just about what you’ve got, (kick-ass plants and cool planters) it’s what you do with them that counts.

So, in that spirit, we have some plant styling tips to share with you this week!

First of all, take a look at this video piece we did for Singapore Women's Weekly, for something to visualise.

Now, first tip - more is more. When you’re trying to create a lush, dense, plant-filled look in a space, you really need to have A LOT of plants. It may take over a hundred to create the look you see on your favourite plant person’s feed and they’ve probably been gathering them for years. Have patience as you build them up but, if jungle is the look you want, don’t be afraid to bring in more plants than you even thought you had room for. You’ll be surprised how easily the space will absorb them.

Next - create some levels. Try to vary the height of your displays with stands, stools and any other secure, flat-surfaced pieces you have on hand. Your space will look much more interesting when the plants appear at multiple, uneven eye levels.

Also - vary the varieties. Even if you are the world’s biggest Aroid / [insert your favourite plant family] fan, you need variety to create an interesting display or you’ll end up looking like a plant farm! Bring in some ferns, succulent varieties, mosses as well as your favourite leafy plants. Wild is a great look- this year’s winning garden at the recent Chelsea Flower Show is proof of that.

DID YOU KNOW? Tumbleweed provides a home plants styling service, including proposing plants and planters to match your home's light conditions and your styling preferences and installation of your chosen pieces in your home. If you're interested in a one-stop plants service, drop us a line to discuss a consultation. Continue reading

ART, FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT

ART, FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT
* cover image courtesy of the Esplanade

Tumbleweed is all about beautiful interiors incorporating plants and creativity. We love it when we meet people who share that vision like artist, Danielle Tay.

We first got to know Danielle when she designed and painted the mural The Power Plant at our Joo Chiat showroom. Finding out that she is both a plant lover AND a cat lover we had to collaborate with her again, so we asked her to commission some pieces for sale at our stores as an initiative to raise awareness of the benefits of living with plants.

Thankfully, she found some time in her busy schedule for this great cause so we can introduce the following range of 8 paintings that will be on sale from tomorrow exclusively at our stores. Danielle has very kindly made these framed prints available at affordable prices so her message of support for living with plants can reach the maximum audience. 

Each piece contains a handwritten label by Danielle and is part of a limited edition run of 25/50. Prices range from $162-$188 dependent on size. Tumbleweed has agreed to donate its share of sale proceeds to the Garden City Fund, a charity that promotes the protection and enhancement of the natural environment in Singapore. So, all sale proceeds will go directly either to help building a platform for Danielle's art or towards saving and planting more oxygen-giving trees in our city.

Please join us in supporting a talented local Artist and our unique environment by taking home one of these beautiful plants-themed limited edition art prints.

WOULD YOUR MOTHER APPROVE?

WOULD YOUR MOTHER APPROVE?

Amongst all your habits and predilections, your plant addiction may be the (only) one you don't have to worry about.

Even if she doesn't know a philodendron from a pilea, she's not going to frown over your collection. But just in case she tries, remember:

  1. they purify the air in your home (so they're good for your health)
  2. they soak up CO2 (so they're mitigating climate change) and
  3. they teach you the value of patience and nurture (so they're making you a better person)

So there Mum, it's the best habit you ever had! 

If that still doesn't work, then you'll have to show her. Here are some ways you can get her on board.
