Dont have much space to grow your favorite plants? Try building a vertical garden like this one, designed by Susie Frazier. Using salvaged wood, threaded rods and bolts, and a handful of mason jars, you can construct a simple hanging planter to add a lot of green to your game. See original article for instructions.
Tineke Triggs designed a room for a young pre-teen artist. Using paint as her inspiration, Triggs splattered the ceiling with color, chose a rug that looks like a watercolor painting and designed a desk to look like dripping paint. Clever storage tip: Triggs affixed mason jars to a piece of wood and hung it over the desk. Photo: Philip Harvey
