A lovely garden begins with your pots

It is not just for holding your flowering plants or herbs, for me a flower pot also needs to stand beautiful by itself in my garden.

When in full bloom I bring the smaller pots in to add color to our family room, and most often they are the main object of my photos a hobby I enjoy.

I have flower pots that are more than 10 years old, and every now and then I purchase one for a special place, a corner or a spot on the porch and the garden.

I choose them by color, size, and always stay in the same color scheme, and yes I do love hanging baskets even though they need to be maintained more, since birds and squirrels enjoy pulling their liners and love to swing from them.

To show off  our indoor plants at their best we are getting creative with how we place them around the house or in the office.

We used crystal bowls, baskets, buckets in metal, ceramic, plastic, and even clay lanterns. For times we have company and forgotten to buy cut flowers we bring in our flowering pots, even the herbs indoors & give our rustic pots a make over. It is fun you should try it.🌿

Creating the Beach Bungalow

We love being around the beach, and we know getting there might take some planning, but turning our living space into a beach bungalow is easily done.

Using an accent furniture to create excitement

 

It might not have a practical use, but the piece stands out because it complements a room’s decor, and gets your attention by creating excitement and not blending into the background.

What is considered an accent piece:

A chair with color and fabric that presents your style, lamps, large paintings, mirrors, chests, planters, multi size wall decors, baskets, ottomans, and trunks.

Small accent pieces add interest to your room. Choose pillows, bookends, vases and candles.
