Davis Dalbok of San Francisco’s over-the-top garden design group Living Green created a stunning masterpiece for the 2013 Decorators Showcase.

How can an elegant, traditional entrance to a stately San Francisco home, be re-imagined to be greener and more welcoming, if not otherworldly? Living Green, partnering with Plants On Walls to create a southern exposed vertical melange of succulents and coppery oxalis that morphs into a private shady fern grotto, was part of the solution. Add the pristine white marble floors that one would find in a rajah’s palace or in the fabled Moroccan Casbah Tamador, that the late and great maestro, Luciano tempo, so skillfully restored. Throw in fantastical light fixtures, created by non other than the Luciano himself, and a pair of stunningly beautiful elephants to welcome the weary traveler. Enter The Casbah!
Chris Bribach of Plants On Walls and Davis Dalbok of Living Green team up to create a dramatic living wall for the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2012. A stunning floating wall of Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters welcomes visitors, first with an array of succulents, both fiery and vibrant, that feather into a serene and shady fern grotto at the entrance. Chris demonstrates how plants are root-wrapped and inserted into felt pockets while Davis explains how the design is arranged to delight with a lush and dazzling visual first impression. Located at the distinguished Hellman Mansion in Pacific Heights, this one-month show features San Francisco’s most prominent and talented designers.
