As seen on HGTV's "Flipping the Block," a new, reclaimed wood fence adds character and additional privacy to the Red Team's patio. Planter boxes hold herbs, trees and flowers for low-maintenance greenery.
Soft Gray Home Exterior With Gray Stone Chimney, Front Porch and Window Flower Boxes
Chip and Joanna raised the profile of an ordinary red-brick home in a quiet Waco neighborhood, giving it this bright, updated exterior as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. The extended front porch is painted a crisp gray and the shutters are black. The gray stone chimney blends well with the soft color palette. A streetlamp and wooden window boxes finish off the details of the exterior.
When coordinating an autumnal color scheme, think outside the box. Modern black planters can be used year-round, and cranberry-red flowering annuals are an easy way to add a touch of fall flair. When mixed together, black, dark green and cranberry red create a bold palette that is appropriate but unexpected for fall.
The minimal use of color in this modern room highlights the unusual shapes of the Donghia sofa and accent tables. The pops of red delivered through the flowers and box add some flair to the fresh, clean space.
For a wild and free holiday touch to your porch, try potting camellia into medium or tall box planters, then adding a layer of rich green around the base with peat moss. The pinkish red tones of the flowers will add a romantic vibe to your holiday setup.
Think outside the box for winter wedding florals, says planner Liz Singleton, of Events by Elizabeth Palmer. "Winter doesn't automatically mean silver, red and white. Creams and pinks with the lambs ear made the arrangement perfect for winter, giving it quite a bit of texture along with a more soft and romantic look. Gold is a fun metallic to pair with winter arrangements because typically, people think silver equals snow. Gold, however, helps create warmth with the candlelight and again, enhances the romantic undertones.” This lantern arrangement uses pink and ivory roses, blush peonies and Dusty miller.
