It has been proven time and again that surrounding ourselves with nature not only boosts our happiness levels, but it is vital to our mental well-being. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find the time to get outside and enjoy it. Maybe you’re stuck in an office all day, or maybe you live in a dense city that seems to have more buildings than trees. Luckily for urbanites, there is a company that is looking to bring the green right into your living room.
Artisan Moss, a California-based design company, has created stunning living green wall decor, but without all of the hefty maintenance. The concept of living walls has been around for some time now, but they often require a large amount of care including excessive watering and complex lighting. Artisan Moss, on the other hand, uses sustainably harvested moss and other botanicals and preserves them to create beautiful, long-lasting, and easy to care for works of art.
The plant paintings will last decades, just as long as they are not in the direct sunlight. Since they are handmade, no two pieces are exactly the same – each piece has its own unique qualities.
Living green walls are not exactly cheap – they’re definitely an investment. With many living walls reaching prices into the thousands, a 12×12 Artisan moss painting goes for just under $200, while a 40×18 painting goes for just under $900, making the living wall experience more affordable and accessible. You can purchase a variety of sizes and designs from their Etsy shop.
A living wall would definitely be worth the investment. For those of you who love nature, but don’t get to spend enough time in it, these works of art provide an alternative way to surround yourself with natural beauty.
