Have you been looking for a way to incorporate contemporary gardens into your modern home decor? Well, Flora Grubb and other specialty shops provide lots of great ideas that double as artwork.
These small aeriums (above) have a "ship in a bottle" appeal. The're all unique, but typically feature tiny mosses, lichens, and tillandsias which all live happily together under glass. They have artists in the store handcrafting each one. If you want to make this a fun project for yourself, we also suggest using attractive glass containers, like this one (below) as a perfect way to display a variety of stylish succulents.

In addition to the aeriums, Flora Grubb also makes plant "pockets" (below) that hang openly or against a wall. It's a great way to have an organized, yet beautiful mess of greenery. It's also a great way to apply plant life toward using vertical space.
Are you looking for a way to incorporate just a little bit of greenery, but in a more controlled manner? Try these "thigmotropes" (below). They're designed to be screwed into a wall and hold tillandsia plants. Just take them down to lightly water every once in a while.
As you incorporate more greenery into your decor, make sure to reap the full benefit of having plant life indoors and help circulate your fresh air using modern ceiling fans. This handsome fan (below) would do the trick.

Succulent wall art is such a big trend right now. They're low maintenance and they look great. Although time consuming, and depending on the size, they're easy to make and could be a fun summer project.
The best part about succulent wall art is that they can be any size and work indoors or out. All you have to do for watering is spray them using a water bottle.
There are so many inventive ways to incorporate plant life into your modern decor, indoors or out. And many of them could also make fun DIY projects. Although, some are more simple than others, should you need help you could always refer to resources like Flora Grubb and other creatives.
