Moss wall art may be a hot new home decor trend, but its history goes back many years. According to Inhabitat, monks in Japan have grown moss walls in temples for thousands of years, as the gentle green facade helps to quiet the mind and create "the sensation of expansiveness."


While you may be interested in these gorgeous living walls solely for aesthetic reasons, they add more than beauty to a home. The founders of Arizona-based Plant Solutions, which offers stunning one-of-a-kind Moss Wall Art, explain that by bringing greenery inside, many people feel more relaxed, peaceful and at one with nature -- feelings that most of us could use on particularly hectic days.


"We think of these as biomimicry art pieces, mimicking the outdoors we would rather be playing in, and connecting us to our human nature and innate love of living things," owner Joe Zazzera told the source.
