When you think you've done it all after giving your home a "house-lift", you find your self staring at that one wall, the one that you can't seem to figure out just what to do with. Well, I'm coming to your rescue because I've come across a neat way to add life to any space; I mean this literally. When you've exceeded the amount of collage walls in your home and don't want to spend hundreds on wallpaper, give a living wall a try. A living wall is an arrangement of plants situated on a vertical facade, like a wall inside or outside your home. These plants naturally purify the air and can help reduce your heating and air conditioning bill while fighting carbon emissions.

 

Just like you, Ashley DeKellis, a professional re-designer based out of Chico, CA; was in flux when having to decide what to do with that darn wall. “I went through a lot of ideas to make this wall in the kitchen more “special”. Wallpaper, mural, stencil, paint it black, gold etc. finally decided to paint it green and I loved the look “as is” when I was done painting. @shannonroasan was coming over the next day to shoot the house so I decided I’d jus balls to the wall …. Okay more like plants to the wall, and create a truly “green” feature in this white on white kitchen.”  Ashley is known for her Mid Century/ Boho style, DIY projects, and finding “steal-deals” at thrift stores and estate-yard sales and bringing new life to them. She offers the Heirloom Fox home listed on Airbnb to visitors that need a fun place to stay. The live wall is displayed in the Heirloom Fox kitchen which has proven to be a conversation starter.
