Randy Bolin and Tom Nelson’s front entryway in Oakland, California, is a riot of colors, both in hardscape and plants. The vibrant slate steps are the perfect inspiration for their plant palette full of pinks, yellows, lavenders, oranges, greens, and reds. Pale terracotta pots are the perfect choice to go with the deeper-hued terracotta-colored house. Succulents enjoy the baking this area gets from the sun throughout the day.
