Design Crush: Modern Garden Planters and Pots

I love gardening, and container gardens.
But it’s time to try something that has not always been 
a tremendous success is the past.
Houseplant ownership.  
I am a little nervous, and concerned for the overall 
well-being of the houseplants I bring home.

I have a somewhat green thumb outdoors, but once I step inside my 
mad skills turn super lame.  
Since I am going to venture into a fairly unknown territory I thought 
it would be a good idea to find some pretty homes for my 
new little friends.
And while I am at it, maybe a few new ones for my plants outside too.
Here are a few of my favorite modern garden pots and planters from 
around the web to begin my adventure in style:
