The Living Wall

Obviously green technologies are everywhere these days and for good reason. One of my favorite new trends is the appearance of living walls. Abroad, Parisian botanist Patrick Blanc has been popularizing this new art form through his work on the CaixaForum Museum, which has attracted tourist from around the world to view the wall shown below which houses over 15,000 plants.

Thus I was excited to see a smaller version of the living wall on apartment therapy today (see the two examples above). Crafted by the always delightful Flora Grub, this smaller option provides a vertical garden which could fit in nearly any setting. And if you haven’t checked out Flora Grub Gardens yet hop in your car or alternate form of transportation and check it out today. You won't regret it!
