Greenery, such as foilage from the yard is a cheap and even free way to add an organic vibe to a room. "The other perk is the greenery we chose will last because you can dry it out," says designer Gabriela Eisenhart with WAKE + LOOM Design in Atlanta and Los Angeles.
This painting of layered vases adds pops of color to the black and white background. The clean line of the vases add a contrast to the smooth movement of the marbled wallpaper. The silver picture frame blends in with the room allowing the painting to shine.
Tough as nails and a strong bloomer, black-eyed susan (Rudbeckia hirta) belongs in every garden. This native beauty adds sunny shades to the summer garden, with flowers that lure butterflies and all manner of bees. Blossoms make a great addition to the vase and continue to open until fall frost if you faithfully remove spent blooms. Seedheads attract goldfinches and other seed-eating birds. Grows 24 to 36 inches tall by 12 to 24 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 3-7.
Caitlin Murray of Black Lacquer Design used a vintage papier-mache vase in the Mexican folk art style of Gemma Taccogna on a tray. Glass bottles fill out the space without detracting from the vase’s vivid design.
This traditional black and white foyer has soft neutral marble floors and neutral cream paint on the walls. Intricate wooden columns and archways are complemented by gorgeous black detailing in the iron stair rail and glossy wooden entryway table, adorned with an oversized vase of fresh flowers
This fashionable bathroom combines elements of patterns and colors for a perfect contemporary vibe. Black and white is the main color pallet but the blue accent is what really completes the design. The patterned wall sconces bring out the patterned wall paper while the glass vase accents give the finishing touches to the counter by adding height.
