Made Us Look: The Hashtag Garden
Yeah that’s right. It’s a lush garden… that looks like a hashtag. And it is most definitely something your wall needs ASAP, especially if you spend more time crafting beautiful hashtags than ogling beautiful plants and flowers.
Created by the team at Art We Heart, this series of Plant Art is our latest wall art crush. The idea behind this series is the theory that even five minutes a day with nature can elevate your mood and sense of well being. A plant (or hashtag garden) can remind you to take a moment to breathe in the middle of your work day or weekend, and gives you something to care for that doesn’t live on a computer screen.
The idea behind these text garden mashups certainly rings true with Art We Heart’s mission:
We create and support art that momentarily “washes the dust of daily life off our souls” and fills us with awe and delight.
We can certainly identify with a mission such as that. The act of even spending 10 extra a minutes a day to make your space more peaceful, beautiful and uniquely you is something we strive to inspire every day.
Each piece is an original work handmade in Los Angeles, just for you. Each one is made of air plants, wood and moss and hangs beautifully on any wall or mantel.
Hashtag Garden ($125): We love the assortment of air plants and gentle lean of this hashtag symbol. In our dream world, we could have a whole bunch of these with different words next to each, maybe made in the style of our vintage marquee.
NY Garden ($200): There are a few of us here who will never stop being NY girls, and this makes us nostalgic for summer on the east coast.
LA Garden ($200): With the super hip design blogger scene in LA and the preponderance of air plants, you might just find something like this growing in the wild ;)
@ Garden ($125): And finally, the good old @ sign. You know we love it.
These would also make for a great designy moment in the backdrop of a party or wedding, especially if paired with a giant chalkboard or something where you could write different hashtags or @ call-outs. To make something similar yourself, check out how we made monogram succulent planters for Mother’s Day.
