[Outdoor Spaces] Vertical Gardens!

19 Jul

Vertical Garden at Flora Grubb Gardens. Click image to link to her site.

I keep telling myself one project at a time, but this is more then enough to distract anyone.  How crazy is this! I definitely want one for my backyard.

Patrick Blanc Vertical Garden Marché des Halles, Avignon. Found on stylepark.com. Click image for Patrick's website.

This is probably more then my tiny backyard can handle.

Some beautiful garden options from Terrain. Click image to link to site.

These look like managable options. The real trick is picking the right plants for your climate and the amount of light you get.  My backyard gets slim to none so I’ll have to do some serious research before attempting this project. I don’t think a Vertical wall of brown dead plants will look as good as the vibrant green ones.

I don't know the story on this one. I found in a random google image search. Click image to link to site.

These appear to be plants of the edible variety! What a great way to grow your own veggies with limited space.

[Design Dilemma] Bathroom Lighting

13 Jul

With the sink picked out, next on the list is lighting. I don’t necessary need to have the exact fixtures picked out, but want to have a plan for what wiring configuration I’ll need.

Option #1:  Pendants from ceiling on either side of mirror.

This Industrial Tanker Warehouse Pendant from Barnhouse Electric is cool. Click Image for more info.

The options are.

These would be BEAUTIFUL. Also by Barnlight Electric. Click image for more info.

This would be totally gorgeous but at $925 way out of the question.

Option #2:  Wall Sconces on either side of mirror.

The Avia Single Sconce from Restoration Hardware. $110.00

Option #3:  Bar lighting above mirror

This look is edging ahead if I can find it for the right price. Maybe one of these horizontally could work.
