Life at the Cottage

Outdoor Flower Accents

I like to use flowers to add color, texture, and to tempt visitors to wander through the yard. Using flowerpots add scale, contrast, and pops of color. Here I gathered containers of different sizes arranging them by this wall painting for a whimsical effect. The combination of art, flowers, and the iron table create a unique outdoor space.

Decorating with flowers is simple and easy. You don’t need to break the bank to bring gorgeous color accents to your yard. Perennials add classic style and keep the cost reasonable as they return year after year. Roses and daisies are a few of my favorites shown here among a decorative low voltage umbrella light.

Add interest by layering objects with plantings. Add a birdcage for an informal container accent while a rusted rabbit approves nearby.

Dress up the outside walls with arbors and iron accents. The colorful flowers add stunning impact while the metal create a rustic yet elegant effect.

By adding color and interest to our outdoor space, we created a place for relaxing and a pleasant visual area just perfect for summer.
