Winter days can be dark and murky, dragging down our mood and stimulating mostly boredom. To the rescue comes 'Luminaarparaad,' the brainchild of two creative designers, Pent Talvet and Kristian Paljasma.

The bright concept aims to light up our chilly days with jolly red flowers and little green bushes, all made of plastic and coated with glowing paint. During the day, the paint absorbs solar energy and thus releases a joyful glow during the night.

Although not suitable for picking, the illuminated flora is low on maintenance and high on whimsical spirit. Stats for Illuminated Urban Scenery Trending: Older & Mild
