Make comfort chic

Make comfort chic

Deck out a patio in a crisp, contemporary motif with these techniques.

Use big containers. A few large pots create a lot of drama; a dozen small ones go unnoticed.

Select one primary color. Go with one hue—say, orange—and use variations of it for variety.

Go vertical. Line up a row of imposing tall, narrow pots along a bare wall.

Keep it simple. Use just a few plants with strong textures—the restios in orange pots along the fence, for instance—to accent in streamlined style.
