While the front yard may be small, this home relies on colorful flowering plants to provide a lively outdoor look. Several shrubs and bushes line either side of the entrance, while similar flowers cascade from window boxes and perfectly complement the rust orange shutters.
Note the manner in which designer James Farmer's arrangements of curios maintain bilateral symmetry (that is, if you draw a line down the center of the plate grouping on the wall, the halves are even). The profusion of patterns and textures he develops feel balanced rather than cluttered because of that element of care.
Thick, vivid plant life decorates the grounds hugging the white garden fence. The gate is covered with an open archway and thick, winding ivy. A large bed of yellow flowers draws the eye while red and pink blooms add a pop of extra color.
Large boulders create a separation from the perfectly trimmed grass in this side yard up to the planted section of colorful outdoor flowers. Yellow, lavender and burgundy blooms add beautiful and bright natural color to the brown and gray rocks and vivid green grass.
