Now that the weather is cooling down, we are willing to bet you are less likely to head out into the great outdoors to smell the roses, or are they flowers? Anyways, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t!
We know we know, you’ve probably heard it 1,001 times before that having plants in your home will not only make your home more beautiful, but even make you healthier. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the 5 hidden health benefits of houseplants.
Moreover, while you might acknowledge this, perhaps not all of you are too confident in your ability to keep your houseplants alive. That’s ok, not everyone can be gifted with a green thumb, but that doesn’t mean there isn’ something for you!
Terrariums are fun, easy and a modern approach to adding “green” elements in your abode. A lot of cities and neighborhoods either offer the materials or even classes to make them. If you’re in New York, my favorite place is Sprout, but rest assured that a quick search will bring plenty of results around you. If not, get innovative and go foraging in your own backyard and reuse an old fish bowl for a similar effect.
Not too sure about how to incorporate it into your living space? We’ve got our favorite pieces of inspiration below.
Pairing a potted plant with hanging terrariums is a sure way to get a breath of fresh air.

Make it the center of attention by displaying your terrarium in a glass case. Creating a multi-level space that will bring zen to any and all passerby.
Who says you only need one? Three’s a party, we think.

Firstly, I love the idea of having a banquette as seating for a dinner table at home and secondly, making a “runner” of terrariums is simply genius, too.
Who’s ready to build their terrarium?
