Have you ever seen hanging air plant pods which are very similar to some strange octopuses? The American designer Michael McDowell began to create different interior styles using the idea of these air plants. The difference between them and the octopuses is that they like air not the water. Moreover they cannot survive contacting the mater. If you don’t want to hang them in your house it may be a perfect solution for the outside interior. You can also simply lay them on the table.
This idea will make the design of your house more alive, colorful and unusual. Hanging air plant pods will attract the sight of yours and your guests. They look especially good at the soft and modest or even some austere background. Make your interior harmonic with the help of these unusual plants.

Hugh Joyce sent us these photos of his recently completed project of the house renovation. When he bought this house in Richmond it was in a very poor condition – basically it was a brick box full of garbage that once was it’s interior. The idea was to re-green the house to make an interactive learning model exploring the most of available green building techniques. Large Kyocera Solar Panel produces enough energy to drop the power bill to $20 a month. There are water recovery systems for irrigation and air filter and purifier and this is just the taste of the Solar Idea House’s technologies, the full list is here. Implementing even a few of those green strategies can save you a valuable amount of money and minimize the impact to the environment.
