You Can Put Them On Your Wall-This brightly printed wallpaper from Portland-based makelike is instant feature wall material. Designed by Mary Kysar, it is hand-screen printed using water-based inks on recyclable paper. We prefer the punchy red colorway, but it comes in a more muted gray version as well.

You Can Put Them Anywhere-Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens, a 74-acre park in the middle of the city, stretches from the harbor to Hyde Park and features countless gardens within the Gardens, such as Succulent Garden, shown here. Australian landscape designer Jamie Durie created this sculptural planter, the centerpiece of the Succulent Garden, using recycled material from 5,500 baked bean cans. Photo by: Miyoko Ohtake
