It’s amazing what you can do with just the color green. In this grouping of containers designed by Scott Endres in St. Paul, Minnesota, the only other color you’ll find is a small dash of orange flowers in one of the containers. But what a compelling vignette green can make if you mix contrasting forms, textured, and shades, especially if you have a colorful bit of hardscape nearby, like this red stool and similarly-hued door.

    Who needs flowers when you have such interesting textures and varied leaf shapes?
