Last spring, we challenged our readers to design a container that featured a single color. Whether you have a passion for purple, a yen for yellow, or an obsession for orange, we wanted to see how you celebrated your chosen color in a monochromatic container design. The results are in. And yet again, we’re astounded by the talent and vision of our readers. Congratulations to our winner and finalists!

This is the third time Sheila has won our challenge, and there seems to be no end to her talent and imagination. While she chose orange as her color, she went for subtlety rather than flash, leaning toward peach tones. We love the peach tips of the aloe, how the hyssop and gomphrena echo the aloe’s tones, and how Sheila chose a container that makes the entire composition harmonious. Bravo!
