Hayford & Rhodes' living wall for Nespresso at the Houzz of 2018  

For a week starting on Friday 26th January, a tall, narrow townhouse on Greek Street in London's Soho will be transformed into the interior and lifestyle home of your dreams...

 Houzz of 2018

Houzz, the number one online destination for sharing home design ideas and expertise, has brought to life the Houzz of 2018, a concept ‘pop-up’ house with five stories of immersive and interactive design experiences showcasing interior trends for the year ahead. Working with Nespresso, Hayford & Rhodes brought to life the fifth-floor café, celebrating the Nespresso Limited Edition range, the Origins of Coffee.

Using the tropical, equatorial roots (literally!) of coffee as our inspiration, we created an inside living wall of over 210 different plants to bring an earthy, natural feel to the space, and to reflect the botanical origins of the plant. Tropically-grown beans are considered the best for brewing, so much so that the tropics have been nicknamed “the bean belt”.

We brought in some of our favourite tropical plants, such as Silvery Ann (Scindapsus Pictus), an evergreen climber native to famously good coffee countries including Borneo, Java and Sumatra. Our inspiration was to bring the lushness of the jungle inside, creating depth, texture and a sense of adventure to the Nespresso cafe. We also wanted it to be a space where guests could realx and unwind: There's a ton of research suggesting that we feel healthier and happier when surrounded by plants and indoor greenery.

Begonia Rex in Red Tango and Begonia Beleaf Evening Glow brought colour and depth to the greenery, with heart-shaped, ruby red, dark plum and silvery pink leaves with an irresistible, iridescent and silky texture. Our planted wall, measuring a mighty 3m x 2m, took three of our expert floral designers a total of five hours to build.
