“For this remodel, we wanted to ensure that the finished design still complimented the original architecture,” says designer Stefani Stein. With this goal in mind, she chose colors and materials that would complement the traditional roots of the space, while offering an updated look. “One important contribution for this specific room was the addition of the vaulted ceiling, which really opens up the space. The furnishings and accessories are a mix of clean lined and vintage pieces with warm neutrals and selected pops of color and pattern,” says Stein.
Tuck stately papyrus and trailing sweet alyssum into containers, and you’ll soon be chanting, “Go Green! Go White!” –and not just on game days. To create this Spartan theme container garden, surround one King Tut papyrus with three or four Snow Princess alyssum. Neither of these plants survives a Michigan winter, although the alyssum may make it into early December if you stash pots on a sunny porch. The faded papyrus is pretty in winter. Surround it with greens for a festive touch.
