Livable Living | “Green” Walls

We are loving this emerging concept, not only as a trend but as an important building component…

Living Walls, an economic approach to design!

 These living walls can help to remove formaldehyde, VOCs, Carbon Monoxide and many other harmful pollutants. A living wall, or green wall, is a vertically growing garden. Not only are they, um…GORGEOUS, but they are also known to contribute to the environment,  save you energy and benefit your health!!  These living walls can help to remove formaldehyde, VOCs, Carbon Monoxide and many other harmful pollutants. Bamboo palm, azalea, chrysanthemums, spider plants and aloe vera, ivy and peace lilies are known plans that remove toxins.

Plants relieve stress, reduce noise and eliminate pollution. They produce productivity and tranquility. Not only do they produce clean air for your home to breathe, but are a great source of edible herbs and vegetables!

There are several ways living walls can be constructed. First thing would be to contact your local clean air garden specialist to find out if your home fits the criteria for a living wall!!

Last week we stumbled upon this great blog by Rena Tom, Eye Candy No. 19: Feathers and it got us thinking, if feathers can be used for inspiration in art then what other possibilities do they have?! We have seen the fashion world using feathers for inspiration for a while as well.  You can see below the metal feathers are becoming very popular in jewelry.  Amber herself wears a feather bracelet which represents a special bond between her and her sister.

As designers we are always thinking about ways to connect design style and fashion to bring an evolutionary design to your homes. We found this beautiful wallpaper below at Walls Design Shop and it’s even called Feathers.

Just recently we used this great fabric from Fabricut called Modern Eyelash and it not only incorporates the colors found in feathers it also gives you the texture.

 And if you are just looking to bring in a little touch of the feathers to your space then rugs and pillows are great ways to easily tie in the this look and idea in a less permanent way.  Here are a just a few that we came across in our travels.
