For those among us who don't have a yard or balcony, beautiful spring weather can be bittersweet when home-life obligations keep us indoors. And while nothing can quite compare to hammock lounging on the porch, a vertical garden or even a simple arrangement of potted plants may at least take the edge off the envy. Whether it's groups of small sculptural trees (1,7) or simple potted plants on a table (2), plant groupings breathe life into a room suffering from spring fever. However, there are many creative ways to go about arranging an indoor garden:
• Arranged greenhouse style on glass window shelves (4). While the thought of blocking light isn't personally appealing, I love this look in a home with an ample amount of natural light.
• Tiered on a cake stand (6) or Low shelves (5). Layers of plants in varying heights increase the visual spontaneous appeal of groups of potted plants.
•Living walls such as those created by Green Over Grey (3) and simpler vertical gardens like those from Woolly Pocket (8).
