Things You Can Do With A LIVING WALL....

You could buy a warehouse to live in and do this !!!
I would definitely do this !!
I can see me living or working here in a heart beat.


You could hang a few to cover something you would rather not look at.
.....I would need to carry it around with me all day. wink wink
Cover an entire building.

Need some fresh air ? Stephan from Architect Design told me that english ivy in a home has more air purifying abilities than any other house plant.

Have you ever been frustrated trying to pick an exterior paint color? Go REALLY GREEN.



How about covering a new wood fence ?
If you have little or no room to plant something in front of it , do this.

An exhibit of living walls.

Look how you can cover those ugly wire fences. These are stunning.
I did a post on an apartment with living walls of english ivy, and I wondered how they did this.
In this post I will reveal how it is done and where you can get it.


Can you think of a place where you could use a living wall ???




Click to enlarge and print these out if you are interested.



You can mix it up, and use different plants !!

This would normally be a big concrete (boring) wall.
This must be spectacular in person.


Oh yes, and you can do a roof too.

Miss Pettigrew And My Two Of My Favorite Things......

This movie is full of beautiful Men & SETS,
my favorite things in life to observe..
This is Nick. He is sexy ....this is a bad pic of him. He is definitely my type.
This is the ever so delicious Michael.
This is Delysia..........the lovable,wacky, and screwed up struggling night club singer.
Rent this movie. It is almost an 'adult disney flick' with a good message.
Delysia and MISS PETTIGREW in the art deco apartment. M.P. is a woman with a message.
This LOVE.....he is adorable.

Look at that face ! Those eyes.....

Miss Pettigrew gets lucky too.
The reason for this post is that the sets are so great. I almost stopped the movie when it first started, because in the beginning Miss Pettigrew is getting food at a soup kitchen. It is 1939 in the movie, which means the crash was in 1929, that is 10 years !!!!
Do we have 9 years left in our great recession ???
I adore Art Deco. The set in her apartment is magnificent. The iron railings, the art deco panels on the walls. Even the lamp shades on the lamps. Her bedroom is faboo too.
I spent several years importing from Paris french art deco furniture. I love it and would love to live in the apartment featured in the movie.
Back to the issue of me wanting to stop the movie because it was unpleasant to watch the difficulties of the main character Miss Pettigrew at the soup kitchen......
One of my defects of character is avoiding unpleasantness, the tedious motions and movements you to have to do to get through a task.
And my task at hand was watching the movie. I forced myself to continue watching and it, and it turned out to be a complete pleasure.

It is very difficult for me to 'do tedious'.
But, when I do finish a task it is always gratifying.
Why are some of us plagued with this character flaw ????
I have to work on this daily.
Lately I have been chanting to myself....."just get it over with , DO IT".

Don't Buy Me This Ever

Not just because I find it to be extremely unappealing (translation : ugly), but because.....
It will melt here in Florida.
Just like me.
This is a horribly hot summer, and we have another 3.5 months to go!!

I want to be in Maine.............

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
