Mercilesplantes Cuisine

Season 2 of L'Appartement #MerciLesPlantes is coming to Do It! In 2020, this event takes on a 100% digital form, but still inspiring. This week, Do It In Paris and @Maplantemonbonheur unveil a new room in this apartment with the staging of a resolutely green kitchen!

It grows in the kitchen! Plants appear as the essential ingredient to draw from the new food trends for the start of the school year. To do this: in your kitchen, we cultivate aromatic plants worthy of a mini-vegetable garden with Prêt A Pousser , giving the air of a small ultra-instgrammable jungle to the favorite living room of foodies… We can't dream best “ short circuit ”.

The unusual cultivation of burnet, aloe vera , sage , borage , oxalys , shiso or garnet basil directly from your work plan will give your recipes extra exoticism!

Aloe vera dans un pot en céramique et le lierre d'intérieur misère

Adding a vegetal touch to your kitchen is the new decoration obsession! Normal, this tip stuck to healthy influencers not only allows you to bring style between the sink and the fridge but above all to enjoy a very Instagrammable setting at a lower cost.
