Bring in the Green

The Pantone color for 2013 may be emerald, but we are excited about another continuing trend in a different shade of green: The living wall. Also known as green walls or vertical gardens, these beautiful and functional living works of art are more accessible then ever. Here we present four ways to incorporate garden greens into the home.

A family in Paris enjoys the work of 30 year vertical garden guru Patrick Blanc. The 20-by-23-foot interior wall is a canvas of the living with some 150 tropical, low-light species assembled in harmony. It begins as a field of texture 
near the ground, then runs through violet and amber arcs of flowers and other ruddy blooms, broadening out near the ceiling into trees that overhang the room like a sheltering forest.
