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

Posted: Updated:

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.
