A large turquoise vase adds a beautiful pop of color against the light neutral patio floor and exterior home walls. The turquoise compliments the natural hue of the water. The light color scheme and palm trees give the patio a tropical feel.
When planting a hanging terrarium, it is vital to create a mini environment where all the plants flourish equally, says Joyce Mason-Monheim, floral director for Accent Decor and a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers. The orb-shaped hanging vase planted with succulents shows how you should use all succulents or all cactus in the planting because they require the same amount of light and water.
Neutral patio tile and matching, light neutral exterior walls create a calm and spacious look for this backyard swimming pool space. A pair of red cushioned chairs add a pop of accent color against the tan palette. A large turquoise standing vase contributes an additional touch of color and compliments the pool water.
This blue, black, and white living room has a modern print sofa, contemporary coffee table and end tables, antique blue vases and accent pillows, traditional white walls and woodwork with glass sconces, and a bright blue pop art painting.
Lacquered cabinets with long, nickel-plated handles and straightforward stone counters lend the air of a laboratory to this galley kitchen. Note the vintage French gym locker used for additional storage. Blenko glass decanters from the 1960s add a colorful accent.
This gold contemporary coffee table features a glass topping, allowing visitors a peek at the neutral patterned area rug below. Yellow and gray hand blown glass vases sit atop the table with other decorative accents.
Wallpaper with a slim, coral-like stripe elevates the neutral look of this living room. For a hint of color, designers added in yellow and red accents, fun yet subtle enough to maintain the room's sense of serenity.
The rocks below the succulents provide a decorative element and serve as water drainage, says Joyce Mason-Monheim, floral director for Accent Decor and a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers. The glass is the same material that is used to make test tubes and can withstand high heat.
This kitchen is beautifully balanced with blue lower cabinets and an island paired with white upper cabinets and a clean white subway tile backsplash. Brass accents and hardwood floors bring in sunnier tones.
