Every year, on Earth Day, many of us stop for a moment and worry about the state of our planet. Some of us tend to make minor lifestyle changes and try to incorporate a few “green” supplements into our life path. While the urban concrete jungle offers very little space for the addition of environmentally friendly, natural pleasures to us, green living wall installations are a wonderful exception. With the amazing development of hydroponics and the innovative new interior design, green walls are now cool and modern in the truest sense of the word!
These islands of foliage are no longer relegated to terraces and gardens. With a concept that goes back to the extraordinary Hanging Gardens of Babylon, you can add a delicate touch of nature to your home space. Here are a few inspirations that we hope will get you excited on Earth Day this year.
Most modern homes seem to choose a semi-minimalist look that fuses neutral colors like white, gray, and brown. While these colors go perfectly with contemporary design that blends clean and well-defined lines along with sleek and elegant decor, a touch of color is an absolute must. Why not add the vibrant visual contrast in the form of a green living wall? Rail lighting here further accentuates the beauty of the green installation.
For a long time, the living walls remained an addition to the home garden or the outdoor pool deck. Now modern technology enables such gorgeous additions to be a part of your home interior. A living wall illuminated by track lighting and beautiful wall art gives the sitting area a relaxed atmosphere. Everything looks so natural and fresh, and a perfect addition to Earth Day.
The living room is a perfect example of the beauty and balance that a green walking addition can bring to your modern home. The green wall blends harmoniously with the wooden flooring, elegant furniture and glass windows that go from floor to ceiling. Their placement next to the stairs and their colorful presence gives this house its own identity.
Not only the modern houses can accommodate the living walls. They are also very well used in commercial settings and office spaces. In fact, adding such a green wall to your workplace design will ensure that a lot more is updated inside. The living walls combine form and functionality and help to purify the air!
Green wall designs and additions don’t have to be gigantic. A simple and compact living wall like this one is good for Earth Day and beyond. Besides the white walls, the green installation like this one will be very attractive. There is also a difference in terms of the geometric design such as the different shapes in the living wall.
The living wall placement here is just perfect. The short wall next to the stairs ensures that the green wall is not overshadowed, and the beautiful window to the right of it promises plenty of natural ventilation.
This is an idea that anyone can try out between their own four walls. And the best part is that not only would you have a cool living wall but a fresh serving of herbs too! A small and compact herb garden in the kitchen is something that is both manageable and elegant. Not only is it easy on the eyes, but could also bring aromatic pleasure, depending on your choice of herbs.
Not all of us get the chance to catch beautiful views of the waves and the beach in the distance every morning. For those who can’t experience this, a living wall in the bedroom is a cool alternative.
A living wall as noted above cannot work well in every home. It fits when you have a lot of space, a high ceiling and undying love for the planet! A whole wall devours quite a bit, and announces your green idea to the world.
Whether it is your home office or a meeting room on a corporate network, there is room for frenzied fauna everywhere. A variety of shrubs and interesting lighting make this living wall a stunning and great addition that makes Earth Day every day. You can incorporate a similar design into your home by placing it in a lounge area or even one of the long hallways.
Living walls do not need to be covered entirely in green at all times. There is plenty of space for more colorful and floral additions. If you want to give your home a lively and rich atmosphere, then a green wall is a good choice. Potted plants with various plants and shrubs also help bring in a natural environment.
Most people seem to stunt the top floor railing simply by leaving it blank. It is a little inventive and crazy indeed to add a new look to your interior. A cushion with the motif of leaves on the living room armchair is also a smart addition!
A living wall that is two stories high needs a little maintenance. But if you’re willing to put in a little effort, then the chances are right. A large living wall like this is the “show stopper” of your home and a great talking point when you’re having a party.
The space in the entrance area is usually filled with huge vases or interesting works of art. A living wall is an equally beautiful and far more attractive option. Add one with your own personal touch and watch the magic unfold!
