Don’t take it personally, terrariums.

But the elaborate Marrakech gardens of Majorelle, restored by Yves St. Laurent with the aid of many, many gallons of peacock blue paint, have inspired us to realize how good a tabletop arrangement of cacti would look against the right backdrop—or against any backdrop, come to think of it. Low maintenance too:
