Firstly, the type of container you use makes a whole world of a difference to your container garden. Start with the shapes of the containers. Not every pot has to be the regular round, terracotta pot. Go for different colors, get creative and paint your pots if you like. You can also opt for a variety of different materials including ceramic and stainless steel pots. Finally, go for pots of different heights to create interesting level differences that add to the aesthetic appeal of your container garden. You could also hang your pots which adds a whole new dimension to the visual appeal of the garden.

Then for the plant in container gardens, depending on the kinds of plants you wish to grow, there are different ways in which they can be used to create an interesting container gardening designs. If you want to create container gardens with flowers, you can opt for flowers of the same color, or different shades of one base color. It could be blue and purple, or pink, red and purple. On the other hand, you could choose a completely contrasting color scheme such as pink and blue to alter the design of your container garden.

Make sure that the color of your plants and pots do not clash with each other. You must ensure that the pots and the flowers make a good combination on their own. Similar is the case with creating a vegetable container garden. Choosing different shades of greens, along with various textures, also adds to the beauty of a garden. Do remember, that the texture of a pot combined with the texture of a plant can make an outstanding design effect. Plant varieties for containers also help in adding to the beauty of a container garden. Ideally, a container garden should have a combination of these 4 types, namely, thrillers, fillers, accents and spillers. Thrillers mainly add height to your garden as they are a variety of upright plants. Use these where you would like to create an illusion of height. Fillers, on the other hand, provide the effect of a rich, lush garden. Accents are meant to highlight your garden, so a dash of burgundy leaves among greens is what will create that extravagant factor. Spillers refer to plants that spill out of and over the pot, and into another pot. These also give the illusion of a rich lush garden. Create a combination of these as another option for a focal point in your garden.

For the placement, not all plants have to be kept together. Create clusters of plants that are similar, in sunlight and water requirements as well as those that create a focal point together. Decide on a suitable location for your plants. You could make the cluster of pots of different heights, textures and colors, a focal point, and then have a few containers strewn here and there. Creating a pathway by placing container plants along the edge of a path is another way of adding interest to an otherwise regular garden. Whether you need container gardening design for your patio, a deck, or a garden, there is a lot you can do to accentuate it even further. Add to it accessories such as water features, unique landscape lighting, wind chimes, and other small figurines to complete your container gardening designs. Finally, these were some tips and trick for you. Whether you have a little space or a lot, container gardening designs provides even the biggest brown thumbs with the chance to play in the dirt.

    What an awesome house! And the kitchen – the concrete counter tops caught my eye. The color of the kitchen cabinets, the round stools, brick wall, metal light fixture, and the other artifacts ties everything together.The homeowners seem really mindful about conserving energy and having a carbon footprint. First, most of the stuff in the is recycled and fashioned into something and chick, for instance the floors, the two bedroom chairs and the ‘fancy shed’. Second, the windows throughout the house, glass blocks in the bathroom, the mudroom, and the the windows are placed in the ‘fancy shed’ draws in a lot of natural light. Lastly, the addition of a mudroom not only keeps the house from dirty shoes entering the house, it also keeps the draft out, which can effectively lower the energy bill.Looks a extremely unique, warm, and place, truly making this a home. job!

    I recently purchased this one in white for $124 from Overstock. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality (just appreciate the more expensive ones sold at Chelsea Market) and it also came filled, sans smell:

    The of Animal Wellness has a feature on the 10 best dogs for apartment living. Whatever breed you choose,remember the “Rs”: research, rescue, responsibility for a lifetime, raw diet and riotous amounts of and (when a pet misbehaves it it trying to communicate that it has a physical or emotional problem).

    I too got a giggle at the “kitsch-free” title, even though I several of them. However, if you want intense color and pattern combos a la Gustav Klimt, check out these needlepoint kits. Not inexpensive, but gorgeous, and apparently easy enough that my mother made two for my sister and I, her first try at needlepoint, with no problems.

    Two couches, same color, I am leaning towards a medium tone. I bear seen this and it really makes the room large. Two different colors in a room might it a exiguous “choppy”. Being the same color allows for different accessories for variety. I would also a sofa table one or both of the couches for table lamps, and a floor lamp by the chair against the wall. I a round medium to coffee table on top of an rug would too. I the of a corner TV armoire/storage unit. Perhaps something a contemporary to suit your couches. This would the up a bit as you into your room as this looks a traffic path.Question? what type of window treatments you considered. I can woven wood, top down-bottom up for both windows. If you need privacy on your windows this is a perfect to the light you want and privacy and you can always them up all the contrivance as well.Nice room – fun!

    I bear a pantry and certainly grateful to absorb one, but its one of those you know basic pantries that is builder grade so to say. The pantry is and simple and has cracked paint in the seams inside of it. When I moved in a year ago, my was to paint and change the shelving and anything else I could to for a better look. What are your suggestions for a simple pantry makeover? Thanks A.T for the January Cure!

    There are a few options for dressing up your ceiling medalion.As already noted, you can paint the whole medalion or the moulding of your medalion the same color as your cornice mouldings or ceiling in a high-gloss paint.You could bear a glass shop an appropriately sized round beveled glass mirror which would be installed centered within the outer moulding of your medalion.As for the light fixture, you may wish to change the domed fixture to a chandelier. A fixture with one or more clusters of lights in its top will light on the ceiling and medalion creating light effects. If a mirror is incorporated into the medalion, the light reflection will be reflected on the table as well as the ceiling.

    Hey thanks again for all the words first of all…very flattering. To the questions…the metal wall art I bear is called “Flower Burst” but was purchased a couple years ago so they may not carry it anymore. The mirrors are IKEA baby, and the lamp is from a Missouri country store called (?) that I only has a website presence currently. As for the orange and longhorn, yes there is a story…I had painted the wall white first, then applied longhorn stickers before painting the wall BURNT orange. I then peeled the stickers off. I had them all over the wall…until my wife got and left me with one:(

    We Ikea all over our place. Our entire kitchen is Ikea, but we mixed it carefully and knew when to stop. We also altered surfaces that were the least expensive at ikea to the we wanted.

    money is tight for us now and area is tight as well in our house. so my parents and my ILs are each paying for a session of lessons for my 3 1/2 year daughter (gymnastics and swimming). They are both things she loves doing and are things we may to out otherwise.

    I found going to the apple store is well worth it when I an with any of their products. They absorb replaced my iphone several times and also gave me refurbished drive when mine died on my macbook (it was out of the warranty period). They also provide me with earbud caps when I lost one side.

    interesting! I assume there is a divide, especially when the agen is really big, say, between a 40 year broken-down mother and a 25 or 26 year old. I had my first child at 30, but not out of choice, I had been ttc for 5 years. The best thing about starting young is that if you absorb any problems to pregnant time is on your side. Also, this is a generalisation, but older moms tend to be more ambitious and anxious for their children (playing music to their belly and showing index cards with pictures on them) while younger parents are more laid

    my diminutive boy wanted a truck party when he was two. my thing i created for the party was the cake. i bought an inexpensive and relatively plastic dump truck at target. i made two chocolate cakes (chocolate sheet cakes to be exact) – then crumbled them up and poured the warm frosting on top. i served the cake with shovels. there is probably all kinds of things to add to the cake to beget it more garbage-like – gummy worms, oreos, nuts, colored frosting, etc.

    Emily, my apologies! got off the phone with Bionaire – @1#$%&! – and they advise me they are discontinuing this product. No matter. There are plenty left online AND the replacement from Bionaire – which may a while to my thumbs up – is the BAP 825U, which is a diminutive tower with permanent filters. Maxwellhere is the link for the larger model:

    I read that the vinegar answer is also better for the interior workings of the appliance than any commercial Jet-Dry type of product, and can assist protect the longevity of your dishwasher. Not how credible this info was, but I it came from an appliance repair dude.

    I to wonder what people mean when they say they only want “good” art? Art that appeals to everyone or has a name attached to it?Personally, even if the wooden hands are a bit clunky or the tree too orange, I be pleased the spirit and ambitious creativity of the homeowners and their willingness to a personal statement. To me, the of any artistic statement comes from having a dream and expressing it to the world, warts and all.

    Many antiques dealers source directly from antique importers, import furniture themselves, and/or at antiques fairs Brimfield (Massachusetts) and Roundtop (Texas). Both of these fairs occur in the summer (Roundtop this weekend), so dealers are likely to be clearing out inventory in spring/early summer. Also, ask if the store has an email list–many times they will email you before a fresh container arrives, in the event of sales, etc.

    That kitchen is hideous. I went to the website and agree with their assessment: “The later updates didn’t with the too but nothing that a interior work can’t fix.”Starting with a sledgehammer …

    Michelle,As a designer and artist I am often comfronted with tricky spaces in clients homes. Not the history of your nor being able to the rest of the home I can offer you this. You can a twist to the of a fireplace ( and inspired by gretchens post) I would paint the wall an accent color that will highlight your space, add a elegant line mantel ( roughly 5 inches thick and let it the width of the wall). wood logs in varies sizes, from 5 to 12 inches ( whole logs) and stack them as tightly as you can them, leaving to no in between. You can add an of art work, or layer b/w photographs togther. The here is to a impact and to the absorbing around. If this was my dwelling I would add a light box above the mantel to a extremely soft glow then employ tree branches (standing upright) along the mantle and install a light source the logs so that it can from behind. Makes for a organic art display.If you want a cleaner look…Make it a floor mirror. a custom frame around 12 inches wide all around with a mirror in the center. You can a console in front of it. Add a print and a couple of smaller ones leaning against the glass, maybe a lamp to one side. A couple of ottomans underneath for additional seating or one amazing chair to the left side.Hope this inspires ideas of your own. hold us posted as to what you create!

    removing carpet & covering windows are first-rate choices. bed and trunk are lovely, extremely appropriate to period. would be to 1875 molding detail, though, rather than to camoflauge in a sea of white primer. will be when room gets final colour.

    I been trying to convince my husband that eco-friendly cleaning products work as well as the horrifying chemically-yucky based ones. Unfortunately he is the one who does most of the grocery shopping so it is difficult for me to them purchased when the products are needed. This would be the perfect to finally all of the products in my home. My husband and I are both engineers so we will be able to give through “technical” reviews from both sides of the fence. Please assist me the horrifying chemicals in my home.
