Rare and beautiful, ‘Pink Princess’ philodendron (Philodendron erubescens) unfurls dark olive-green leaves with white variegation. As leaves mature, they turn a deep black hue with striking pink spots. Strong light helps plants develop the best leaf color. Place plants near a bright east, west or north window. Water ‘Pink Princess’ when soil is dry to the touch. The black tone of leaves makes this philodendron a real charmer—and difficult to find. Grow this vining philodendron on a totem or pot trellis.
This undeniably fun bedroom is a colorful reflection of the budding artist who lives here. Angela's daughter is following in her footsteps and her bedroom/art studio is the perfect space to inspire creativity. Benjamin Moore's White Rain was applied to the walls and trim, then color matched for the drapery and area rug. This design technique creates a gallery-like feel by neutralizing the backdrop, and in this case, allowing her artwork and painterly fabrics to stand out. The crisp white bedside tables pop off of the dreamy wall color and the Pierre Frey fabrics on the pillows and bench are perfect to inspire an artist's imagination. Repeating an additional set of panels and upholstered cornice behind the headboard adds major aesthetic value, style, and an element of customization to this bedroom. My favorite element is the cat lamp, having a "cat nap" on the bedside chest.

English roses unfurl blooms packed with petals, and ‘Crown Princess Margareta’ is no exception. Plants open flowers in shades of apricot orange, with buds appearing on plants all season long. English roses make great choices for growing on arches because they’re not too rambunctious and won’t topple an arch. At the same time, the canes bear flowers along stems from the soil up, creating a blossom-covered arch. Plants grow 9 to 11 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 5-9.

It grows to 4 feet tall by 3 feet wide. Repeat-flowering. RHS "Award of Garden Merit." (David Austin 2010, Auskitchen).
To apply fairy princess makeup, begin with a pearly eye shadow. Then add pink blush on the cheeks. Next, apply self-adhesive glittering jewels on forehead like a princess' tiara, and then apply additional jewels under eyebrows, on cheekbones or anywhere you like. Tip: You can find self-adhesive jewels in the scrapbooking section of your local craft store. Make sure your child doesn't have any adhesive allergies before continuing with this step. Keeping away from the sensitive eye area, dab face lotion on the cheeks and surrounding the jewel tiara on forehead. Have model close her eyes then apply cosmetic glitter where lotion was applied. Paint lips with a sparkly pink lipstick or tinted lip-gloss. Finish the look with a fairy princess costume.
