A few more pictures
of plants and flowers in the Fall Colors Contest. Did anyone else think it was cool that Carmen's white carnations(!) were the perfect match for her white rugs? At the same time they were echoing the shag rug texture and the other white shapes throughout the room, they were allowing that beautiful pattern on the vase to stand out...
What I like about that plant on the right is the leaf texture mimics that of the framed textile patterns on the wall. This plant could be a great way to bring color and texture to another area of the room and tie it in with the sofa area.
These branches with berries were an effective - and simple - match to this room. The branches tie into all of the other slender lines that are happening, and the delicate berries match the delicate branch texture and color on the pillow.
That yellow Craspedia in the arrangement was a great way to help the yellow in the kitchen travel out into the room.
The white Phalaenopsis seems to be right at home in so many interiors. I think in this case the shape of them goes nicely with the animal prints - and the fact that the blossoms are white helps them to reflect the soft golden colors that are in the room (and love the basket they are in, too).
