Ben always wanted a rooftop garden but only has a 1x3m balcony, so he made this mini version out of one of his stencils. It looks great doesn’t it! Mainly I think because the stencil is really good, so you have a great

Angus & Celeste

I discovered Angus & Celeste at Life Instyle and was gob smacked by their gorgeous vases and hanging planters. I’m not usually into porcelain objects or vases, but these really caught my attention.
