Meditating Terrariums are back to our Andersonville Galleria booth!
Even though summer isn’t quite here in Chicago yet, I would like to post some marvelous pictures of outdoor spaces. I know not all of us have the fortune to have a patio or a porch, but look closely around your home, maybe a little place close to a window, add a couple of touches from the following picture and create your own summer escape!
A wicker chair, a pot with aromatic herbs, and a glass of wine will do!
Today I wanted to post a picture of a recent work. This terrarium is a small representation of what I consider a Zen space. The simplicity of the design and the placement of the elements offers a sense of calm and invite to a moment of silence and meditation.

I am fascinated by the floors in the picture bellow. They are made of chipped granite (I wonder if they were placed one at a time?) This is certainly inspiration for a terrarium.
I also love the accent pathway in the following picture, and the grass is also very intriguing, almost like hair:
Sometimes it is not necessary to go away to escape from the routines of life. An escape is just a mental stage, an attitude that can be reached anywhere, anytime.
Maybe staging a tiny corner of our home, and dedicate it as our own personal sanctuary could be helpful. A sacred place for silence, meditation, or simply a place where you can curl up with a book, a cup of tea and enjoy a lovely, peaceful and well deserved afternoon.
Here a few pictures to inspire you.
Lots of pillows are mandatory to reach mental peace :)
Little personal touches make these corners special.
Enjoy this day.
Following my last post on Topiaries, I would like to add that topiaries prove to be timeless. They work just as well in modern settings as in more traditional ones.
I love the blue pot in this picture. It really brings a bit of cool to the rustic space.

And finally, for a touch of freshness.
Isn’t that amazing that someone actually took the time and effort to make an otherwise boring hallway into this stunning Moroccan inspired scape.
I am so intrigued by the wall’s texture, I imagine they are made of of clay. But I am even more intrigued by the captivating and distinctive cactuses (plural: Cacti, cactuses or cactus)
