Sheet moss (Hypnum) is often wrapped around the roots of terrarium plants to help retain moisture and/or soil, Colletti says. It's also attractive. This cloche design features a Staghorn fern (Platycerium grande) wrapped Kokedama-style; Kokedama means “moss ball.”
A trio of rectangular mirrors hang behind the dining table, reflecting back the room and visually expanding the space in this traditional dining room. Decorative moss balls and oversized candle votives complete the tablescape.
Designers agree that moss is one of the biggest bang-for-the-buck accessories. You can mix long-lasting moss balls with other items, like a metal sphere or balls, on a coffee table. "It infuses with any style and color palette," says Donna Mathis, owner of Atlanta-based Haven Design Works.
Every room is better with fresh flowers or the perfect green plant to add life and a little fresh air. In the case of this island’s centerpiece, I created a custom “permanent botanical." The large resin bowl (approximately 32 inches in diameter) is filled with multiple varieties of moss, green moss balls, agate, pyrite and driftwood branches to create an elevated natural arrangement. There is no limit to the possibilities and best of all, you can create this look yourself with things you love.
Roll a small amount of clay into a ball. Pinch the top of the ball and shape it into a mushroom cap. Place the cap onto the wire at the top of the mushroom stem. Bake the clay according to the package directions. In the meantime, plant the Oxalis into the planter and cover any visible soil with moss. Water thoroughly.
