I was in LA visiting a friend lately and noticed a new mainstream decorating trend that used to be a quirky gardener's passion..terrariums. These self contained urban oasis' popped up as window displays in clothing stores, accessories in furniture shops and art in perfume boutiques. They were displayed on their own or often hung from the ceiling in clusters with something as simple as rope. While I remain a bit intimidated about building my own, it was very inspiring to see the variety and beauty they all displayed. Check out Olla Flowers for some great advice or custom designed living containers as well as Old Faithful Shop for a hanging terrarium for just $88.
