Green Spaces in Cold Places
Posted by Rhonda / to Interior Design / on February 21, 2013

I recently read a blog by Matt Hickman about pop up parks in New York,

“What’s a work-from-home Brooklynite to do on a cold (and I mean really cold) winter’s day when he has three appointments in Manhattan spanning from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with 90 minutes of down time in between each one? Check e-mails from a loud and anonymous coffee shop? Tedious. Catch a movie? Difficult. Shop around and explore a new neighborhood? Suicidal. Lounge in a 4,500 square-foot event space filled with artificial grass, plastic trees, and ennui-busting light therapy boxes? Bingo.

Until the end of this month, frozen New Yorkers looking to comfortably kill time or ward off the wintertime blues will find faux summertime bliss at Park Here, an indoor ”pop-up park.” Located at the Openhouse Gallery (an event/venue space and not an actual art gallery) on Mulberry Street in Nolita, the concept behind Park Here is quite simple: When the weather is warm and sunny, cooped-up New Yorkers flock en masse to local parks to congregate and unwind. Why not try to simulate the NYC park experience inside when it’s 18 degrees out?”

It got me thinking about how I could bring the outdoors in to my day here in rainy grey Seattle. I do not have the space for a full faux park in my living room.  Of course I thought of art since I work for Grand Image. I searched our collection and was amazed at how many pieces we have that would work perfectly to create a “Green” wall.  Here are some pieces I found that I would frame in floating glass frames and create a collection with:
