Bright green pots complement natural green herbs in a hanging garden, providing a colorful punch to this back deck. Eileen Beaver, who blogs at A Creative Day, created this hanging herb planter for the Home Depot Patio Style Challenge.
A metal planter is centered within an old wooden frame that hangs above an old fashioned wooden chest in the entryway. The old metal fan and old soda dispensers are unique design pieces, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
This tiny courtyard garden is a patio within a larger common yard. Designers helped it feel private and unique with a series of container gardens and a green living wall. Small-scale furniture makes it possible to squeeze in both a sitting and dining area.
That black-and-white wall treatment actually wraps around the stairs, creating a sense of cohesion between the home's entryway and living room. To make even more use of this unique space, the designers showcased a planter and gold accent on top of a console table.
A rat tail cactus (Disocactus flagelliformis) reaches toward the ground as it spills over this hanging basket. Its bright pink bloom brings the attention back up to the metal container selected by designer Ryan Benoit.
This custom project was built as the clients' "forever home." The uniquely designed entry system leads the visitor to four separate landings as the stairs wind around and turn from concrete to "floating steel" stairs towards the top. The concrete was formed to give it a unique detail, and there are two integrated planters along the way up as well. Inside, the home offers a three-stop elevator, two-sided fireplace, 26' exposed steel I-beam, spa-like master bath and hand fabricated custom perforated steel handrails.
This contemporary-styled living room features natural wood and leather furniture and accessories with industrial accents to give the room a homey, lived-in look and feel. The unique planters, hung from roped pulleys, and vintage letters as well art contribute to the sense of do-it-yourself naturalism to the space.
The beautifully textured finish of this blue nightstand pops against the white walls. The uniquely shaped black table lamp catches the eye and adds height to the display. Finished with a pastel green planter and decorative box, the details create a simple and stylish display.
This gorgeous summer porch has a Grecian feel with flowing white sheer curtains and tall planters. The white pops against the wood floor and natural background. A life size purple tile statue adds a unique and artistic decoration to the elegant design.
Vibrant plants -- both inside and out -- play the starring role in this tropically inspired guest studio. Both modern and rustic elements fuse to create a unique style that's comforting and rich. Gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows provide a peek at the serene gardens just outside.
Repurposed cartouche boxes, found at military supply stores and online, make perfect planters for a hanging garden. A concealed drip irrigation system waters all 10 planters for one minute each day, says designer Ryan Benoit. Draining water cascades down to the planter below.
This deck mixes contemporary and global pieces for a look that stylish and unique: a brown sectional, relaxed, rust-colored lounge chair, a Frank Gehry Twist cube, sculpted planters and throw pillows with tribal-inspired fabrics.
