‘Lyon’s Lavender Magic’ (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses/Sorano, hybridizer) is a large standard African violet; large standards can reach over 16 inches in diameter. The plants have quilted, medium green foliage. Some gardeners put their African violets under grow lights, but they also thrive in natural light. Winston J. Goretsky, president of the African Violet Society of America, says, “African violets like to have bright, indirect light. Even a south-facing window with sheers is good, as long as it doesn't become too hot or the plant is allowed to dry out to the point of wilting.”

An eclectic mix of wicker and traditional furniture in whites, neutrals, and blues sets the tone for the casual space. White curtains allow for plenty of natural light and a white throw rug over hardwood flooring anchors the room.
