Add A Touch Of Zen To Your Home With An Indoor Rock Garden (PHOTOS)

We know that the daily grind demands an outlet for stress relief. While many of us might head to a treadmill (or, um, a cupcake) to get that boost, there's a quieter way to get the weight of the world off our shoulders. Enter the rock garden. For centuries, these outdoor spaces have provided a moment of quiet contemplation in a hectic world, becoming a mainstay in Japan's public areas. But if your outside space doesn’t have enough room for a simple oasis, there is a way to bring some of that peaceful energy inside. We spotted just the right solution on the decor blog She Makes a Home.

For ideas on how to create your own, head over to She Makes a Home for the full story.
