Vertical Gardens

The balcony is the perfect buffer between the living spaces and the city skyline, blurring the boundaries with nature and greenery - trees and leafy shrubs transform the balcony into the hanging gardens of Babylon. Within the verdant green, luminous spheres by Bocci are concealed to create a cosy nook that bodes of tranquility and calmness. Interior design by Coletivo Arquitetos. Photography by Rui Teixeira.

As the heart of the home, kitchens are central to preparing meals over convivial bonding. What better way to spread good earthy energy that incorporating luscious greens in the space. Instead of the usual potted plants, try a hanging garden integrated as part of a wall unit for a cohesive aesthetic. Interior design by Atelier Barda. Photography by Maxime Desbiens.



Up the style ante with tactile, luxurious finishes redolent with the aesthetics of an exotic island far away. Start with a favourite chair or sofa upholstered in the flamboyant Camengo Tampa fabric. Do balance the loud prints with a neutral background. Available at Goodrich Global.

Statement Walls

Let your walls do the talking. Rich shades of green look striking against trending darker furniture choices. Look out for the key elements to help to create this look in your home. Think large scale leaf prints, oversized insects, safari wildlife and exotic birds. If green is not up your alley, just mix things up but keep the botanical prints a constant which still feels totally tropical. Luscious and exotic, this Royal Fernery wallcoverin is inspired by the gardens of Marakesh articulated in a collaboration between interior decorator Martin Lawrence Bullard with Cole and Son studio. Available at Goodrich Global.
