“The Conversation Piece” this Week – Unique Gardens (5/7/17 – 5/13/17) 2

Every week, I scour the internet to find interesting articles or websites to share with you. Sometimes related to home decor, often times related to vintage, and always fun and interesting! Topics that start conversations, teach you something new, or make you think.

Pour yourself a cup of coffee and tune in each Saturday for “The Conversation Piece” – you never know what we’ll discover to talk about!

The Conversation Piece this Week

I love gardens, don’t you? There is just nothing like being outside among a garden full of plants. I especially like flower gardens and unusual plants, but pretty much anything with GREEN on it makes me happy.

This week I stumbled on an article on Domino called “These Stunning City Gardens Have Us Green With Envy” by Anna Kocharian and Elly Leavitt. I thought the gardens in this article were inspiring – new ideas to try in my own gardens. Check out the rooftop garden – a perfect setting for a weekend party with friends! 


The vertical gardens in this article are my favorites! I think the vertical element is unique and interesting. And those plants hung all over the ceiling? Oh yeah, I could definitely work in that space! Here are some of the photos from the article that really caught my eye.

I love that dark wall with the metal grid for hanging plants – very clever. That would work well on a garage wall next to a patio.

The room filled with plants looks like such an inviting space! I can really imagine working in that space – I think it would be relaxing.

Any kind of dangling plant, like those String of Pearls, makes for a very unique look. Can you imagine having a wall of plants like this in your main entryway? Oh my! That would be stunning!

Having plants climb along strings attached to a wall or fence is a great look, turning an ordinary space into something extraordinary! I would like to create that look on a patio – I think the maintenance would be pretty easy, don’t you agree?

Let’s Start the Conversation!

Do you have a favorite garden that inspires you? We’d love to hear about it!
