After checking out Met Home's Modern by Design house we took a walk through the surrounding Pacific Heights neighborhood. If you're not familiar with the area, it can be summed up in a word - wow. There are a lot of incredible houses and beautiful architectural details, but we liked these overflowing flower boxes better than any of the flashier home details that we saw...

The mix of green succulents (of which our love is well documented) and delicate purple flowers (not sure of the type - anyone know?) was unexpected and absolutely charming. The two large boxes flanking the front door did so much more for this home than any of the costlier (and more water-consuming) manicured landscapes we saw throughout the neighborhood.
