DIY: MOSS GRAFFITI
Moss graffiti, also called eco-graffiti or green graffiti, replaces spray paint, paint-markers or other such toxic chemicals and paints with a paintbrush and a moss “paint” that can grow on its own. As people become more eco-friendly and environmentally aware, the idea of making living, breathing graffiti has become a more green and creative outlet for graffiti artists. It can also be considered another form of guerrilla gardening.
- One or two clumps (about a small handful) of moss
- 2 cups ofbuttermilk
- You can also substitute withyogurt(vegan yogurt can be used)
- 2 cups of water (or beer)
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- Corn syrup (optional)_______________
- Apply your paint in a moist area that receives a moderate amount of sunlight.
- Moss grows best on porous surfaces such as bricks or other stones.
- The best times to plant your graffiti are in the spring or fall, and keeping the moss moist will encourage its growth.
- If for any reason you wish to get rid of the design or parts of the design, spray it with lime juice as this will kill the moss.
I like the subtle color scheme and the paintings on the wall. The ceiling fan is also a nice touch, although useless for a room that size.
I definitely wouldn’t mind waking up like this. Bright, open view window with a lemon tree near my bed.
It would probably help me get out of bed before 10am.
What a great look for the bedroom. Very clean, very warm-feeling. The adjustable night table lamps and recessed bed lighting are also perfect.
And of course, you have to compliment the space with a Macbook Pro.
Every Inch Counts Apartment
Check out what this person (Heidi) did with her 523 square foot Chicago, IL apartment. Not only is the apartment awesome, but the design displays the owner’s personality very well. The patterns on the ceiling, hardwood floors, analogous color choices and contrasting wall colors, track lighting and choice of decorations really give this place a luxurious hotel feel.
The office nook makes great use of cabinetry without clutter and also achieves a sense of exclusivity for a place to get work done. The decorative pillows on the bed make a good accent color for the bedroom, but as a guy I could never be bothered with such inconveniences regardless of the effect. Note the glass carafe on the glass side table and leather book tote below as minor necessities. I also like the large mirror that reflects the light and view from the balcony. Her bathroom is also superb in a no-nonsense, uncluttered, and fully stocked way.
If you love the colors, here they are:
Benjamin Moore - Bittersweet Chocolate 2214-10 (the dark brown)
Benjamin Moore - Smokey Taupe 983
Martha Stewart at Home Depot - Vermillion MSL054 (the red in the office nook)
Benjamin Moore - Chelsea Gray HC-168 (in the bathroom)
