The rooftop garden on this round clubhouse, surrounded by high-rise apartments in Bangalore, India, needed to provide a spectacular view for both clubhouse guests inside and apartment residents outside. Joly John of Shibanee & Kamal Architects created a hanging garden that provides a living focal point.
Take inexpensive baby's breath out of the background and into the spotlight with this hanging centerpiece. Use a round ball of floral foam, floral wire and monofilament to suspend this ethereal arrangement over the table.
If you’re a gardener who craves pure splashes of single colors, try something different this year. Mimic Mother Nature’s fall color show and treat yourself to a hanging basket planted with a mix of hues. The effect is truly a garden party in a pot. Cool Wave Mix Spreading Pansy delivers a just-right blend (designed by the seed breeders) that’s eye-catching and perfect for fall. Tuck a pot into the ground at least six weeks before frost, add extra mulch once the ground freezes, and you’ll be rewarded with early spring pansies. Cool Wave pansies handle temperatures as low as -13°F. They’ll look frozen solid during winter, and leaves and stems may turn brown, but watch what happens when spring peeks ‘round the corner. Of course, plants in pots won’t survive freezing temperatures.
Circular elements, such as the colorful rug and skirted ottoman, offset the hard edges of the mantel and second-story windows in this sitting room. Patterned cushions spruce up brown chairs, while an ornate chandelier hangs overhead.
This classic dining room features all-over neutral tones paired with traditional white crown molding and a soft floral area rug. Ivory chairs with floral upholstery are positioned around a round dining table, while a candelabra chandelier hangs above. A built-in hutch provides space for dining room decor.
A white pergola overhead provides beautiful shade on this outdoor deck with bistro lighting. Two cushioned sofas in natural wood and blue tones center the space with a woven hanging chair hanging in the center in front of a round gas fire pit.
