The Wish List: Home Pros Pick Their Splurge Items
The Wall Street Journal / December 2017
Kari Whitman, of Kari Whitman Interiors, talks about her choice of plants for a living wall in the bathroom of a project in her home town of Boulder. Lavender, mint, moss, and sage make up this green bathroom wall, which becomes more effervescent as the humidity of the shower warms it. Because these plants don’t need a lot of sun, it’s perfect for bringing the outside in regardless of the season, and the natural humidity makes these a low-maintenance choice for plant life inside the home.
