Stately Setting

Deep purple, sun-loving coleus in containers pop against the orange-red brick and dark green front door of an Atlanta home. A mix of begonias were planted front and center, for easy maintenance. Danna Cain of Home & Garden Design also chose a bright yellow moss rose (Portulaca grandiflora) to complement the other plants.

Historic and Homey

A springtime palette of pink, green and yellow is paired with a brown wood and glass door on a home built in 1820 in historic Madison, Ga. The plants, including oakleaf hydrangeas and ferns, and wreath were selected by Debbie Accetturo of Le Petit Jardin, a floral design and event planning business in Madison.

Showhouse Worthy

The sunny yellow facade of an Atlanta estate home surrounds an intricate door of wood, wrought iron and glass. Green spiral boxwood topiaries add another elegant element to the entryway. The home was the setting for the 2015 Atlanta Symphony Associates' Decorators' Show House & Gardens.
