Poodle Dwarf Alberta Spruce
Look for this topiary style of dwarf Alberta spruce featuring spheres. In the nursery trade, this form is known as a two-ball poodle or pom-pom spruce. It’s a great choice for complementing a formal garden or making a statement in containers. When growing dwarf Alberta spruce in containers, use a commercial bagged soil blended for acid-loving plants. Consider adding shredded pine bark to the mix. Layer a few inches of bark mulch over soil to help it retain moisture.
A decorative window provides privacy without offending your neighbors or blocking out natural light the way a full-blown wall would. This stylish DIY idea from Lowe's costs less than $100, and you can customize the glass with any stencil design you like.
A neutral palette is used throughout this Texas ranch home to create a warm, welcoming environment. To create a space that is visually interesting, a mix of natural textures, from the rustic woods to the knubby fabrics, is used.
Soothing beige walls contribute to this living room's calming ambiance. The color coral is put to good use here via the throw pillows and armchair, keeping the room from feeling too neutral. A chevron rug adds a quirky final touch to the space.
A caged chandelier, textured buffet table and striped rug put a fresh spin on the formal dining room. Patterned wallpaper balances out the wainscoting and helps bring the space into the present as well.
This great room can easily accommodate a crowd, what with its open kitchen, formal dining space and nearby sitting area. Wood paneling overhead draws the eye to the mountain views and helps the modern interior feel a little more connected to the wilderness.
White walls, large windows and a pretty pendant ensure that this kitchen is bright and airy for meal prep. Meanwhile, a cheerful blue accent wall, wood island and plaid stool all give the space a charming country touch.
