potted privacy plants are perfect for us. We live privacy plants that are hard to control (Bamboo, tall grasses etc) but by keeping them in planters (individually or box) you control the earth they have access to.
Bamboo is a dramatic specimen plant when grown in a large container (where it can't escape). It makes a perfect, fast-growing screen. -- Name: Phyllostachys aurea -- Size: To 20 feet or more -- Growing Conditions: Full sun and moist, but well-drained soil
Love this tile! A combination of Asher Gray Marble Tiles on the walls and Luxor Gray Tiles on the floor (both from Ann Sacks) create a quiet and luxurious but modern backdrop in the bathroom (Remodelista - A New York Flat with a Glamorous View)
