Spend some time in Carter’s universe and you’ll emerge inspired to bring more plants into your space and experience the uplifting effects they have on your home and mood. “Have you ever walked into a plant nursery or greenhouse and instantly felt a change in the air?” asks Hilton, “This is the feeling you’re looking to replicate when you bring plants into your home.”
Hilton’s ability to seamlessly marry indoor plants with other interior design elements makes us wonder – what kind of design does he gravitate toward to make these harmonious spaces possible? We invited him to share his Design Milk shopping cart to find out.

Abstract Mountain Blanket by Buhlaixe Studio
“I added this throw blanket to my cart because it can be so many different things in a home. As a throw it can be used in the typical way for warmth or styled over the arm of a couch or chair. But with its beautiful abstract design, it could be mounted on a wall as art. As a plant stylist and someone that has plenty of plants in terracotta pots, the color scheme of the blanket would go perfect in our sunroom, styled over the arms of our leather chairs.”
Peaches and Cream Platform Planters Set by Tortuga
“I put this Tortuga planter in my cart for its cool geometric design and for the hidden drainage area. Because of the drainage area, it creates its own pedestal for the plant to sit on top of. I love that you can purchase more than one and place them together to form a chain. With it being made of concrete, I’d style a cactus inside and cover the topsoil with small stones.”
Uma Mini Light + Speaker by Pablo Designs
“I placed the Uma Mini Light in my cart because I have one already and love it! I figure why not share that love by gifting it to someone. Throughout spring, summer, and fall we would use the lantern when having dinner on the deck or walks in the park. Not only does it create a nice warm intimate glow, but you’re also able to set the mood by connecting it via Bluetooth and playing your favorite jams! When having it indoors, I’ve styled it in my sunroom amongst the plants to add a little glow between the foliage.”
Recorridos Wool Rug by Meso
“This Recorridos Rug by Meso screams comfort. We have a wool rug in our sunroom and one of the things I love to do is take off my shoes and let my feet sink into the wool. It’s the simple things right? When styling it, I’d either place it in our living room or bedroom, possibly in the same room as the Senderos chair.”
Paperthin Bench by Lennart Lauren
“I’ve dropped this Lennart Lauren bench in my cart because I’d be out of my mind not to. It’s not only functional and durable, but it’s very stylish. The variety of powder coated colors will add a nice pop to any space in your home. While it has a modern look, it feels like it can fit in seamlessly with many types of vibes. Personally, I’d style it in the entryway of our home or on one side of our dining room table, with a faux fur throw draped on top of it.”
