Weekly Tip 4/19/10 – Window Box Decorating

Standard

Weekly Tip 4/19/10

Need some height in your window box or flower box??  Here is a window box designed by Maureen at 3 Decorating Divas.  She incorporated the sticks for height and Wave Petunias with potatoe plants and evergreens. 

 

 

Remember to fertilize using Miracle-Gro Liquid Feed frequently to help your flowers bloom and grow.

 

Go to Ikea and purchase a bundle of natural sticks called SMYCKA for $14.99 (see photo and link below) and arrange them to come out of the center and sides of your window or flower box.  This looks great and adds element in the winter when decorating for the holidays.

For our teenage boys room, we decorated with locker furniture, thick black shag rug, fun and funky lighting, graffiti motif and punches of color with sports wall murals.  Furniture is very versatile and useful.

 

Here is a description of our design plan and of the design elements for the space.

Added in our design plan is where you can purchase the items and how much they are.  We also include paint type and color.  If any of the items are no longer available, we help to find something similar while staying within the budget determined for you.
