A design trend that I have been noticing more frequently is the inclusion of vertical gardens in interiors. Vertical gardens, often referred to as green walls, seem to be especially prevalent in urban areas where there is a shortage of open, green space. These gardens help to purify the air, absorb noise, and cool down spaces in hot weather. Their beauty can inspire joy, and they provide a welcome connection to nature.
Here are some lovely examples of vertical gardens or green walls–some are simple ideas that anyone could copy, while others would require professional installation and built-in irrigation systems.
Vertical gardens are becoming popular in some of Chicago’s restaurants as seen below.
These vertical gardens really are a form of living art. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have one in your home?
