  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.  Photo by Jessica Antola.   This originally appeared in Garden Apartment.

  In a slightly less grand undertaking, architects Melissa Baker and Jon Handley, partners at the firm pulltab design, took inspiration from the city's plethora of community gardens, and their client's love of verdant spaces. Integral to the indoor green wall design is a low water trough under the garden wall, which collects runoff from the wall’s irrigation system.

  This family created a take on the full scale living wall at the far end of their outdoor room for privacy, instead of a barrier of curtains. Working with Kari Elwell Katzander of Mingo Design, a landscaper specializing in pocket-sized city gardens, the Zizmors built a perforated green wall with English ivy that climbs wire mesh and hanging boxes sprout-ing with herbs and spider plants.
