Morning Flower Mix

 

In art, the term rhythm refers to the movement of your attention through a painting. How your gaze shifts depends on the repetition of elements such as colors, shapes and lines; it can be fast or slow, flowing or erratic.

Rhythm can also be found in nature. Just as music can change tempo, rhythm can do the same when you control the design elements. While accent pillows are used to create subtle or eye-catching focal points in an interior space, you can use plants to create rhythmical accents outdoors. Increasing plant size, changing color intensity and placement are all tricks for adjusting rhythm in the garden.
