Choosing Flower Color

My sister LOVES pink.  Yet she would never be this bold, below.
Choosing garden flower colors I always pay attention to interiors & what my client is wearing.
.
Just did another design with the client wanting all white flowers.  White always works.

White flowers show best from a woodland, blue or burgundy flowers show very little at a distance......

Great lesson, especially what the client is wearing. True on blue!

Love this -- plus the blue/white vase and lime flowers in the corner.

I always wear black and, apparently, fur. Not that kind. The kind that reminds you how much you are loved!
I love an all white garden or just all green. Too many colors make my head spin and I feel like I can't breathe! There is something about that room that I love. Don't know what it is, for certain.

Always good to see you!

Simply beautiful!

Our daughter (the one who just moved back here) loves "green"! Wants "simple" loves "white"!
She has great taste!

It makes sense to me!

Tara,
I do love an all white garden or when one commits to one color. It reminds me of a marriage, to love and to cherish forever. That room would also look great with all white or natural home-spun linen too.
Enjoy the weekend.

Personally; "Schiaparelli Pink" is my absolute favorite color in the world! ("Magenta" was the closest crayon!

I would "leap" at that room! and install it immediately!

I just may!

I love your blog so much!
