I browsed last night the latest collection at this inspiring Earth-conscious retailer. VivaTerra is not afraid to stylishly use colors. The handcrafted elegance is part of their appeal.
Prolonging the Life of What Used to Be Trash
The products I selected are green because they are made with reclaimed materials or the recycled parts. The Misprint lanterns are a perfect example. The designer found a few sheet-metal factories that were willing to supply her with their colorful misprint remnants. She transforms what used to be trash into Moroccan inspired print lanterns. This type of collaboration is part of the equation in reducing our footprints.
Going back to VivaTerra, these items feels like a soft breeze. Modernize your gardening area with:
- Beach Striped Reclaimed Rug $49 – $119 USD
- Recycled Glass Terrarium $49 – $79 USD
- Misprint Garden Messages $49 – $69 USD
Decorate your outdoor dining room with:
- Misprint Hanging Lanterns $14 – $69 USD
- Reclaimed Indigo Oriental Rug $49 – $119 USD
It is cold and rainy today. Thinking about planting and how to decorate my patio for a summer party adds warmth to my day.

I like the glass pear shaped terrarium. Very Cool.

Thanks for this, it’s a breath of fresh air on this chilly spring day 🙂 We were too busy moving in last year to pay much attention to our front balcony, but it’s a good size and I can’t wait to find the perfect chair and accessories. Those lanterns are awesome! I love the terrariums too.

Patricia and Anile: I see that the terrarium popularity is not just in magazines. I am glad since I dream of cultivating my own.
Anile: I needed this since today felt like fall not spring 🙁

I love these letters on the wall! What a refreshing idea. It gives me the idea of recycling old posters and old photos to do something like that in my bathroom… A nice and big « RELAX » sign…

Lucie: An excellent idea for your bathroom. I forgot to mention that more words are available at VivaTerra. Besides grow, you can buy: garden, go green, eat, dream. But I do not know why the omit the word relax.
