CONTAINER STYLING

DSC_0130I nearly had too much fun designing our yard this year. I was pretty ambitious about what I wanted to accomplish and had to let some things go, but all in all I am really happy with how everything turned out. The last thing on my shortened list was fresh herbs, but every time I went to a greenhouse, they were sold out, or the quality was really poor. It got so late in the season that I ended up picking up basil and a couple of other plants (one indoor) to fill out the containers I purchased from a cute little flower shop in Calgary. DSC_0117It's really simple to style with containers. Without spending a lot of money, you can make any space look fresh and vibrant.

DOUBLE HORIZONTAL3I love the way this looks, it really ties in the view from our window and simultaneously livens up the kitchen.
