Lila B. Design, a San Francisco-based floral and garden design firm founded by Baylor Chapman, created this new take on the DIY vertical garden kit. Chapman painted salvaged solid wood shutters and then transformed them into vertical potting boxes filled with soil, planted with a variety of low-maintenance succulents. Perfect for the urban gardener.

In the end, we loved having these special mementos from a cross-country road trip as such a prominent feature in our apartment.
