Scoot over potted plants because a new type of indoor flora is becoming increasingly popular in interior design: vertical garden walls. For the ultimate way to bring the outdoors in, take a look at this beautiful custom vertical garden wall we spotted over at Urban Gardens.
Especially during the wintertime, it’s easy to get glum looking outside only to see no leaves on the trees and only rare glimpses of greenery. Well, we don’t know about you, but we at Marvin Gardens would get cheered up every time we saw a pretty and luscious plant-filled wall brightening up our indoor spaces. How do you feel about this vertical garden wall trend? Would you add one in your home?

We’re smitten! The traditional English-style home of the Simon family recently featured on the Traditional Home website is gorgeous inside and out. We know it’s the beginning of 2011, but this house resembles more of the 1930s look. We’re so glad the homeowners decided to “keep its integrity intact.” With a restored interior and properly landscaped terraces and gardens, it’s really a charming space.
Here are some of our favorite photos of the New Jersey home. Aren’t they beautiful?
When it comes to wallpaper, there’s an infinite supply of patterns, colors and textures to choose from. This new Urban Metallic collection by Carnegie Fabrics can now be added to the list. We found these wall coverings on Design Milk.
The Midas pattern is sure to add sparkle to any space. At first glance, this pattern would be fitting in either a bathroom or a dining room that often accomodates lots of guests.
This deeper, more serious bubble pattern is known as Helics. The darkness of this print is appropriate for a quiet room like an office. It might also work for a dining area where quiet meals are held.

The term chesterfield means couch or sofa in Canadian. Over in Europe a Chesterfield is identified by a plethora of buttons and a low back. The great thing about a Chesterfield sofa is that whether you dress it up or down, it’s going to look fabulous. Period. Take a look at what we found on the Belle Maison blog.
In a goldenrod shade of yellow, this butter soft leather Chesterfield can fit into a feminine or masculine setting.
This black Chesterfield boasts feminine flair as it’s dressed up with a mini coffee table and a rug.
It doesn’t get much better than this. A golden and velvety Chesterfield against a bright plum backdrop.
Turquoise Chesterfields surrounded by polished wooden walls creates a formal yet stylish setting.
A plush white Chesterfield adorned with touches of navy and midnight blues is ultra chic.
