Air plants, also known as Tillandsias, have a unique, sculptural appeal, which fit into modern design. This DIY terrarium kit sold by Gardener's Supply Co., includes a hanging glass terrarium and planting supplies such as preserved moss and lichen, and decorative stones.
For an indoor hanging garden, Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with WAKE + LOOM Design used succulents because they don't require a lot of water and are long-lasting. An extra touch is a mirror that reflects the sculptural plants in the living room. The hanging wood planters are from Anthropologie.
A white ship lap accent wall combines beautifully with the polished hardwood floor allowing the wood furniture and indoor plant life to pop in this dining room design. A sleek white chair with faux fur seat cover creates a stylish end piece at the wood table. An unshaded light fixture, hanging window plants and mounted wall art add the finishing touches to the design.
The view into the dining area shows how the white painted ship lap accent wall allows the plants and wood furniture to come to life. White chairs at the ends of the table add an extra pop of style to the dining set up. Hanging succulents and indoor plants add natural life and color to the design.
Use lanterns (with their glass panels removed) and hanging candleholders to show off vining plants, suggests floral designer Angela Darrah. This 'Neon Pothos' Epipremnum aureum thrives in low light conditions and pops against the red accent wall. When hanging plants, weight is a concern, so Darrah suggests using a decorative moss sheet to disguise a plain plastic container.
This eclectic bedroom with low ceilings inspired designer SuzAnn Kletzien to make light, bright and expansive design choices, including hand-painted blue and white ombré walls and floral curtains. The space for nightstands was quite narrow, but Kletzien used hanging brass pendant lights to leave more open space for books, plants and accessories.
Across from the bed, a cozy seating area awaits guests who are ready to get out of bed, but still don’t want to go too far. The vignette is accented by a deftly styled hanging shelf. A well-placed plant adds the finishing touch to a room designed to be comfortable and spacious.
To really evoke thoughts of Palm Springs, Calif., designer Michelle Gage layered the living room with hanging plants, vines and various types of cacti. These decorate the bookshelf, too, which proudly displays a bust of Elvis, a flamingo statue and a record collection.
A family-style dining table sits between two one-of-a-kind "walls" designed by Bells & Whistles. Sandblasted Brazilian marble floors create depth and add a balanced contrast to the “tin” textured ceiling in the main dining room. A decorative cinder block wall is adorned with hanging plants in a nod to indoor-outdoor eating. A hand-woven rug hangs from the wood paneled wall.
Wide, staggered pockets and a built-in irrigation drip in this vertical greenwall blanket make hanging and grouping plants of all sizes easy. The 70-inch by 70-inch blanket by designer Jamie Durie attaches to fence or wall and has a waterproof backing to minimize water contact on the wall.
A designer trick to make tiny outdoor spaces look larger is to accentuate height. This modest 9-foot-by-10-foot covered deck seems much larger than it actually is. A purposeful combination of 8-foot-long drapery panels, posts lined with decorating coat hooks and a grouping of hanging plants draws the eye upward.
A two tiered vintage chandelier hangs over the large circular wood dining table. A mix of potted plants and floral arrangements create an inviting centerpiece fitting to the room design. Mounted plates and a large sunburst mirror decorate the mint green wall space above the distressed buffet.
