Within a week, I will be heading to London & Paris on a short vacation and would like to share a bit about my plans. Below are some mid century related stores I’m planning to visit in London. I learned a lot from these handy blogs. (via: hipshopShopikonWeeBirdy) If I miss something, please drop me a line!

BML: Architectural Planter

bml_planter09
For those of you who have been wondering what that planter on the lower right side of my blog is, the answer is here. They are designed and manufactured by BML, an online store ran by my friend Robert and his wife Yin in Southern California.

One of its great feature is a hidden drip tray underneath of the planter. ‘We never liked looking at drip trays sticking out of the bottom of a planter, showing you all of the dirty water and muck. The concealed drip tray holds just the right amount of water you should be using to properly hydrate your plants.’

The planter is surprisingly light weight and also perfectly fits up to a 5 gallon planter container. I can swap it in and out as well as planting directly into it.

The current model, BML-1 is available to purchase directly from their website which comes with a range of 7 colors.
