Remember these grass walls? Well on our neighborhood walk, we saw some loose gravel at the bottom of a landing got replaced with very orderly pebbles:
We loved this use of small smooth pebbles on their sides in such a small space. They give such a beautiful texture and the variety of color is amazing. What we really love is that pebbles aren't that different but the simple act of putting them on their sides totally changed the feeling of this small space.
