At Juniper we write an award-winning blog about the historic houses we’re rehabbing and decorating, we sell beautiful and affordable art prints at Juniper Print Shop, we make gorgeous oversized lumbar pillows, and we curate the internet daily so you don’t have to with our Shop Our Finds feature. Our goal is to be your go-to source for design problem solving! Welcome, we hope you stay a while!
So, just like my preserved boxwoods, I love terrariums for their easy maintenance. You don’t have to do much to keep terrariums alive other than give them lots of sun and a spray of water every month or so.
I was excited when last month West Elm invited me to come and make a terrarium along with a few other NYC bloggers, led by their star designer, Shane Powers. He is a garden and plant extraordinaire (he works a lot with Martha).
That was one of Shane’s tricks that I loved – using layers of colored sand to cover the potting soil. Look how pretty the layers look here:
It was such a fun night, chatting with blog/industry friends while getting our hands dirty. I loved sitting next to Mat Sanders and getting the scoop about the new Domino. Did you hear there is a special issue coming to news stands April 17? Mat is the new Market Editor and from what I could coerce out of him it sounds like they have a lot of great things in store for us Domino fans. :)
Do you have any exciting weekend plans? Michael gets home tomorrow (thank heaven above)! I missed that guy.
