    Perfect addition to the back yard “Mintery” herb garden, that springs up (every spring! ) in assorted planters on the concrete patio outside of the kitchen, and winters squeezed into the garage next to hip but sad chairs I might re-do someday. Right now we have mint,and rosemary on tap. I want to add fresh oregano at the very least.

    I am so in love with these and will buy one even if I don’t win. I just bought a house and I move into it next month. I intend to put this beauty in my new mid century designed living room. I am thinking a large fern overflowing in it. 🙂

    Hi – In the summer it would go in my side yard near the front of the garage, and in the winter near my fireplace. If I use the plants I have now, would use a peace lily!

    Bullet planters are the coolest! It would look amazing against the turquoise 3d wall in the living room of our newly remodeled MCM home in California. Would defenitly plant a Lady Palm Tree. It has that awesome Sputnik look and it’s great to help purify the indoor air!

    Hi, my husband Jim and I have purchased a 1967 home in Venice Florida and tore up the wall to wall carpet to expose the terrazzo floors. Had the floors refinished and the house painted throughout. We used the colors of the Hip Haven Bullet Planters as our color palette. We used Atomic Orange in the kitchen, green in the master bedroom, yellow in the bathrooms and sand in the den and guestroom. We love the results and would love to have a planter to plant a Traditional Florida plant in.
    We love MCM furniture and collect pieces from consignment stores and craigslist. We live in Canada FT for now and vacation in FL. Love your site, thanks for the great ideas and stories.

    I just barely found your site, and it has opened a whole world. I have spent the last 30 years modifying and decorating my 1945 house in a primitive American turn of last century style. Then last summer I got a little early 60’s Shasta compact camping trailer. She’s only 10′ by 7′, but she has a kitchen with an icebox, stove and oven, a tiny bathroom (actually a toilet room), a kitchen table/bed. I started looking for things to decorate her…She doesn’t have much damage, but needs to be painted inside and out, and of course, all the details that will let her personality shine. Anyway, in my search for atomic era “stuff”, I’ve fallen love with the MCM look. Which led me to your site (and I can’t wait to make your little putz houses!) so, if I win, I’ll put the planter in my trailer, use it as an ice bucket, and hit the road for the next “shine and show” I’ve never been to one, but I guarantee we’ll make an impression with my bullet planter/ice bucket holding some glass bottles of our favorite sodas (or, dare I say it..wine). Thanks for this great site. But now I can’t stop thinking about how to bring my decorating style into the middle of the next century!

    I just divided a snake plant and I think it would look great in a bullet planter. Either an orange or a turquoise one.

  8. Pamela Funk says:

    Love these planters. I’ve just started getting my retro furniture together so I can use some great accessories. I would place it on my vintage 60’s fingers set and fool it with culinary herbs!

  9. Pencils says:

    I would put it by the big window in my dining room. In my dining room I have dogbone Heywood Wakefield chairs, a Hey Wake table (not the cool one I want, but it’s good for now with a small child), and a Hey Wake sideboard. We got the set from Craigslist, a gentleman was clearning out his parents’ retirement house, and this was the furniture they’d had through their entire marriage. He gave us a wonderful price on it because he wanted someone to love it, not someone to buy it and resell it to hipsters in Brooklyn. And he could tell from how excited I was that we were going to love it. I need better curtains, and the rest of the room styled; the sideboard is filled with my messy collection of Pyrex and assorted overflow Fiesta from the kitchen. Anyway, I’d probably put a peace lily or maybe a nice fern in the planter, I tend to grow peace lilies as they’re easy, but ferns are pretty and quite “right” for the period, aren’t they?

    Hi Pam!
    I own a 1969 Ranch and my new Bullet Planter will be placed to the side of my brick facade fireplace. I have a house plant called “devil’s backbone” that I want to transplant into my new Bullet Planter!
