It’s no secret that when you’re surrounded by beautiful things, you feel more cheerful. With this idea in mind, Brazilian design studio Rosenbaum and TV show Caldeirao do Huck help poor families to redecorate their homes and improve their surroundings, in the hope that they feel more comfortable and happier at home.
A family in the outskirts of Sao Paulo were treated to one such make-over and alongside a drastically improved appearance inside, the mother and two daughters received a fabulous hanging garden in the form of old plastic bottles. Strung together and planted with flowers, spices and medicinal herbs, their outside wall was adorned with this vertical allotment. The women already used old food containers as vegetable planters but are delighted with their expanded urban garden.
The design was so popular that a how-to was even published online for others to copy. We think it looks amazing and was delivered by a very inspiring project.
