I decided to use a color in the front yard and on the porch that I don't use very often.....Lavender....and I'm loving it!
I filled the planter on our front porch with Lavender and I am really pleased with the way it looks from the street......
I normally mix several different colors and flowers in this planter, but I wanted the simple look of a Lavender field this time.
Since I don't use Lavender very often, I didn't have a lot of stuff on hand in my decorating stash. I love it so much that I plan to add more as I find plants and accessories to add to what I already have.
I had a few purple/ lavender silk flowers in my stash that I was able to use in my hanging baskets.
I also had a few lavender silk bushes that I used to fill the pick up bed in the centerpiece on the farm table.
I have tons of fabric on hand but not too much in Lavender.....
I had two lavender pillow shams that belonged to my Mother.....she loved any shade of purple!
I had a yard sale sheet that I found in my stash of linens......I may cut it up and use the fabric to cover some throw pillows for the porch.
I also had a Farmhouse Lavender Fields pillow cover.....
Last but not least, I had a Lavender wreath on hand to hang on the front door.
If you are using Lavender in your yard this summer, I would love for you to share photo's in the comments!
