Succulent Decor – Cool Ideas

Succulent Terrariums

Whether you DIY or buy these online, terrariums create an illusion of a small, different, green world right in the middle of your living space.

Experiment with different shapes of glass terrariums. Hanging terrariums look enchanting in the passageways and balconies. Couple these with some pendant lights to create an air of fairy magic in your front porch, dining area or balcony.

Mini Zen Garden

Go Spiritual. Develop a mini Zen garden replete with a serene Buddha figurine in a meditative pose. Place this Zen garden in your yoga room / study room or office. Add pebbles, sand and a few rocks to give it a natural look.

DIY Succulent Coffee Table

Coffee tables with luscious succulents in the centre exuberate warmth and joy. A bit of outdoors on your coffee table is an instant energy booster. succulent decor

Succulent Wall Planters or Shelves

Forget expensive wall accents and wall coverings. Bring a plain, boring, drab wall to life with these plant pods or wall planters. It is not only easy on your pocket but also serves the purpose of making that particular wall a focal point of a particular room. It also leaves your floor space or counter space free for other uses.

Lantern Planters

Succulents look ravishing in a Plantern. Team a few succulents, preferably of the flowering variety with a tiny solar light. Place these in an old fashioned lantern. This glows at night, highlighting the colours of your succulents. It sure is a swell idea to make your balcony garden look fabulous.

Tanaka Tatsuya Miniature Worlds – Amazing!

 tanaka tatsuya miniature

Wait a minute! Is that a tree or broccolli? This photograph of a Tanaka Tatsuya miniature world sets your imagination on fire.

Isn’t it an absolutely captivating piece of art? Imagine Gulliver’s flabbergasted expression when he gets washed ashore a foreign land occupied by tiny people. Everything is so teensy weensy and yet so beautiful!

Tanaka Tatsuya miniature worlds or dioramas

Miniature worlds or Dioramas can be created out of everyday objects like paper clips, books, broccoli florets, bread and what not. These everyday objects when placed strategically along with miniature people, birds and animals can get transformed into a totally different world altogether.

That’s exactly what Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka had in mind when he started his Miniature Calendar project in 2011. Every day since 2011, he has been painstakingly developing miniature dioramas like a forest made of broccoli, or a railway train made of bread. It could even be a horse grazing away at the bristles of a scrubbing brush etc. His imagination knows no bounds. Careful planning, design and execution has made the miniature calendar project what it is today.

Tatsuya’s interpretation of miniature worlds using dioramas are depicted beautifully through his photographs. Every day one such photograph makes its way into the calendar.
Just check out a few of his best diorama styled miniature worlds.
