During the spring and summer months a garden can be filled with vivacious blooms and flowers, full of bold colors and sweet fragrances. These create a stunning appeal for your setting. Color creates a happy feeling, bold reds and yellows seem to invoke feelings of cheerfulness, while soothing blues and purples bring a much needed tranquility into your setting. One color, that is normally always present is green. The leaves of trees and plants form in shades of greens, while the grass and moss that makes up the flooring of your outside spaces also comes in shades of green.
During the autumn and winter months, your garden setting will experience a rapid changing of colors, as the blooms and flowers die off or hibernate for the cooler months. And the bold greens become dominant. The color does not need to be lost though. Consider adding a stunning planter collection that features bold and exciting colors like the Delphine Planter Set in Bahama Blue or Carmel Green Apple. These planter sets come in a variety of sizes, so they bring a lovely “pop” of color into your setting, while adding a uniformity as well.
An indoor setting can utilize colorful planters in many non-traditional ways. Consider using the Audrey Planter in Fire Red as a wonderful desk organizer, to hold your pens, pencils, scissors, rulers, and other office supplies. The charming Marella Urn, available is several different patinas, can make a stunning table centerpiece filled with fresh fruit or potpourri.
Color is important to our everyday lives, because it create a focal point, that draws our eyes to it. Whether it be the bright blooms in a simple planter, or a colorful planter left set empty, flanking a doorway, your eye will find these items attractive and exciting, and will want to take a look! Color also adds cheer, consider planters for your setting that add beautiful colors, even when your brightly colored blooms are out of season!
