GARDENS: LIVING WALLS – REAL OR FAUX?



The main wall of the new KITH lifestyle store in Paris (above) is an excellent example of how a potentially uninteresting space can be styled into one of the most eye-catching backdrops seen on Instagram. Living walls can be found on the outside of buildings around the globe, both residential and commercial, and suggest a lean towards a more ‘green’ lifestyle – literally. Designers and architects often use faux planting with a variety of leaves and textures so as create the most realistic effect, rather than installing fresh plants and flowers which are much higher maintenance and therefore more expensive to keep in top condition; a mix of the two – real and faux – can be used for events, exhibitions or for styling gardens, where a percentage of the greenery may be closer to visitors…
