- cara and will meyers, owners of DIG gardens in santa cruz, california, are on top of the vertical-gardening trend. "vertical gardens are a great use of space, especially if you have a small terrace," says cara meyers, who leads workshops on designing and assembling picture-frame planters in DIG's urban courtyard. "like in your home, living pictures can help define an outdoor room by becoming a focal point or a destination."
succulents are a natural choice for vertical gardens because they grow slowly and have low water requirements. "our plant palette is chosen for texture and architectural appeal rather than flowers and instant color," meyers says. "succulents have such rich hues and textures. mixing them in beautiful patterns is quite impressive!" better homes and gardens, august 2011

Sorae Lee, Assistant Art DirectorOn my way to get lunch, I couldn’t help stopping to drool over the gorgeous ceramic bowls by Isabelle Abramson that were displayed in the front window of Michelle Willey. I love how the 29-year-old Boston-based artist plays with delicate negative spaces and organic patterns to create such lively pieces.
Erin Marvin, Managing EditorMy good friend, Heather, recently had a baby. And since Heather is one of the coolest people I know, I can only surmise that her gorgeous baby girl will also grow up to be a member of the “cool crowd.” So what better way to give baby Ruth a head start than with the uber-hip, all-acrylic Vetro Crib from Nurseryworks? I first spied it at ICFF and it (almost) made me want a child of my own, just so I could furnish a nursery.

End, I couldn’t help but notice the new addition of Lynzariums to the already fantastic collection of furnishings and accessories. The succulent mini-gardens and terrariums are designed by Lyndsay Maver, who also manages the store. You can check out the Lynzarium blog, where you can also see their collection of air plants in driftwood, necklaces and more.
