Featured Space tour this week takes us to the home of a local friend and member, murphy.
Situated on one of South Miami's many canals, an old oak tree serves as the foundation for this outdoor living space. Its many branches teeming with life, supporting countless orchids, staghorns, spanish moss, and other epiphytes. The dense foliage and assorted air plants not only provide cover from the Florida sun, but purifies the air. Did we mention there was a koi pond?
Plantation homes in South Carolina have a rich history. Many estates in the Charleston area have been turned into private and public preserves, featuring historical structures and beautiful landscapes. Magnolia Plantation and Gardens was but one of the gems in the county when we visited in spring. Come take a stroll with us and find some inspiration as we take a journey through this 50 acre plantation garden.
Dubbed a mini "rain forest" by friends coming into the apartment, epiphyte's planted aquarium rainforest nestles into the far corner of a small living room.
