Deep, moody green interiors are taking the design world by storm, and bathrooms are no exception. Consider a hue like hunter, olive, forest, jade or emerald for the walls, and balance its intensity with a light, natural wood vanity and jute accents. Matte black fixtures and ceramics complete this look. The trendy palette works well with rustic, modern farmhouse and Southwestern design styles.
When leaves bring the color, the show never stops. These gorgeous foliage plants fill shady pots or planting beds with season-long good looks. One way to create an eye-catching display is to plant pots with one type of shade-loving annual. Cluster the pots together to create a striking garden tableau. This shade garden features (clockwise from bottom center): glowing gold millet grass (Milium effusum), Kong Red coleus, a hanging basket of Emerald Falls dichondra, Chocolate Mint coleus and Kong Rose coleus. These plants all grow best in full shade to part sun.
Lush plantings along the perimeter frame water views, creating a lovely spot for dining alfresco on this rooftop patio. The tall, twisting stems are the aerial roots of liana trees, native to northern Thailand. Other plant varieties include agave attenuata, echeveria, aeonium and fuchsia, each carefully chosen to thrive in the unusual setting and enhance the space's striking design.
