Apartment Week Continues with Green Wall NL

I am horrible when it comes to decorations and nicknacks to make my apartment seem more homey.  I completely lack creativity of coming up with a "scheme".  Luckily, Green Wall NL gives someone like me a creative and eco-friendly way to decorate with a product called the Green Wall.

This unique wall hanging is literally living art.  Just pick your favorite plants (asparagus, ferns, ivy and chlorophytum bonnie are recommended), add some soil, and water occasionally.  Then watch your living art grow and become, in more ways than one, a green wall! 

These clever decorations from Green Wall NL would be great for an apartment, dorm, office or cubicle, and even more permanent living spaces.  They do require a bit of maintenance so it's probably not something I would recommend if you don't have a green thumb, but if you do, this is a great way to create a beautiful living and work space!

Have some lighting fixtures that are just drab and boring?  Check out Green Wall NL's lampshades!  These lampshades are made of silk paper and produce a soft  light with beautiful shadows.  You can wrap them around an existing fixture or lampshade like I did to spice it up a bit, or remove the lampshade and wrap it around the light bulb directly.  It is probably recommend that you use low-wattage or eco-friendly light bulbs since they produce less heat.  I would be careful the first time you use the lampshade directly on the bulb to make sure it doesn't over-heat the silk.  But if it doesn't, you will have a beautiful and subtle way to give some atmosphere and beauty to your space.

What I Love: Green Wall NL has unique and beautiful ways to decorate your home in an eco-friendly way.  I love the unique idea of the Living Walls especially.  The prices are right and shipping is affordable considering she's in The Netherlands.  And of course this is an Etsy shop so automatically I love and support it!
