Map & Details>>

Unless you're one of those blessed with a garden apartment, creativity is required when it comes to greening up your living space. GRDN is a sun-filled mini oasis in Boerum Hill that specializes in beautifying the inside of your home with exotic houseplants (check out the air plants that live without soil in a glass dome) and lovely pottery by brands such as Guy Wolff and Campo de' Fiori. Having a dinner party? Owner Susanne Kongoy, formerly a chef at Union Square Café, knows what's needed to make a table look spectacular and stocks a variety of vases, ceramic trays, beeswax candles, tableware, and natural linens. Or, if you're the one attending a party, pick up a bouquet and a little gift for the host, such as a quirky glass paperweight by John Derian or fragrant French soaps. For those lucky enough to have a garden (or at least a sunny windowsill or fire escape), the shop's backyard teems with shrubs, herbs, and perennials, plus all the necessary containers and tools to turn any slab of grey into something to be admired. 103 Hoyt Street, Brooklyn, 718-797-3628, (11217)
