Ornamental grasses add year-round texture, movement and color to rain garden designs. Tufts of blue fescue bring a steely hue to this rain garden and blend beautifully with variegated green and gold sedges. A formal paver stone edging gives the garden a formal look that echoes brick raised beds by the house. Use river rock to complement a rain garden’s water-related theme.
This new third floor master bedroom was created out of the home's previous attic area. The spacious room features two large closets, a walkout balcony, and ensuite bathroom with double vanities, soaking tub and glass shower.
Fresh white linens and a painted headboard create a dreamy look in this Mediterranean-inspired bedroom. A tasseled Roman shade and an urn table lamp are romantic accessories, while rough-hewn beams add rustic character to the feminine design.
Both newbies and seasoned gardeners make this mistake: crowding too many plants into a space. When plants are overcrowded, the look may be lush, but plants can’t reach their full potential. In this garden, two years after planting, the purple coneflower and yellow coreopsis had vanished, overshadowed and elbowed out by the other plants. Always read pot tags to learn how much space each plant needs to thrive. Give plants ample room to ensure the best growth.
A unique globe light fixture hangs over the large and inviting bed in this bedroom. Blue pillow stitching, a patterned blue pillow and a blue throw blanket create a color accent over the thick white bed linens.
In this Spanish-themed bedroom, a large, ornate bed is made with a red and gold quilt and paired with several decorative pillows. Behind the bed is a five-panel wood headboard with curved tops and images of saints painted on it.
