We’re head over heels for macrame hanging planters! All the rage in the 1970s, the plush planters are back and ready to inject boho style into your surroundings. Trailing plants are especially fetching spilling out of them — try ivy, philodendron, pothos or a succulent like string of pearls (its vine of quirky bead-like buds is a joy to behold).
