Urban greening company Treebox has unveiled an innovative style of living wall for use in both residential and commercial projects.
Living walls are becoming increasingly popular in both external and internal settings due to their striking aesthetic and environmental impact, but until now controlling the density of a wall’s vegetation has not been straightforward.
Treebox’s new Vertical Louvres system overcomes that problem, enabling a variety of striking visual effects to be created. The louvres can be mounted onto a concealed rail system to enable them to open and close, creating the required plant density
Armando Raish, managing director of Treebox, said: “Since we first showcased our Vertical Louvres living wall system at March’s Ecobuild conference we have…

First off, I want to say that I am sorry I have not posted anything in just about a week. I have been so busy with work and trying to have a little bit of personal time. Therefore, I will share what has been going on with me this week.
Well I finished the requested Batman themed box. She said that she really liked it. Here are pictures of it:
Also, I have my second request for a trinket box. It is Pirates of the Caribbean themed. I already have it a planned out and since tomorrow is my day off, I can actually get started on it. I will share pics of it at a later date. I will just say that it a chest shaped box, if that was not what you were already hoping for :).
One more thing about trinket boxes that I do have a Pokemon themed one in the works, as well as some other ideas. However, customers request do come first. So I will hopefully have some new things posted in my Etsy shop sooner than later.
If you did not already know I work at JCPenney. Right now, I just work in the men’s Levi department, which I actually enjoy. I just feel that retail is not really for me, or at least selling clothes. However, next week I am getting transferred to the Windows department, which I am thrilled about. It’s an expert position where I will be helping customers pick out in-store window treatments and/or order custom window treatments. Hopefully, it will help open some doors for me so I can really get into my degree more. By the way, if I have not mentioned before I graduated with a degree in Interior Design.
I am also trying to work my way in the Custom Decorator position where I can go to people homes and assist more hands-on with the design process. Wish me luck with that!
I also finally got The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia from my boyfriend. I know I am really late but I am just happy that he got it for me. So geeked right now.
Other than that just been hanging out with my friends and enjoying life.
17 books were stacked on their sides and bore the names of German poets and writers on their spines
There was one point in life when I wanted to design furniture. I have seen so many creative, unique, and outrageous ideas for designs. It makes me question the aesthetics and functionality of pieces sometimes.
Here is some cool Geeky furniture designs. Enjoy!
By the way, I have design a Tetris TV stand before for an actual design project. You can check that out in my Design Portfolio: Interiors: Shelterhouse.
So, I am excited to say that I received by first custom request for a trinket box. The customer wants it to be Batman themed and that’s all I have to work with. She just said surprise her because the person she is giving it to likes anything Batman. I am kind of nervous about how much free range there is and really hope she likes it.
Here are some sneak peaks of what the box will look like:
I will show you all the finished product in a few days with what she thinks. I hope this is the Batman she was looking for.
