When we were asked by Lynnette Sandgren - Director of Design of Renaissance Homes, to participate in the NW Natural Street of Dreams by designing some truly awe-inspiring containers, we jumped at the chance.

The challenge was to come up with custom container designs that complimented her "Farm to Table" concept for the house. The containers are to be used as cutting gardens to bring fresh floral arrangements into your living space as desired. Our container designers Laura and Deb worked within the home designer's desired pallet and chose stately dark containers that would purposefully coordinate with the house trim, but let the flowers really be the center of attention.

Whether it's next to the front door to greet your guests, or to complement the garage door and brighten that corner, using consistent containers helps to pull the design together.  The container near the garage introduces both a Windmill Palm and Cannas into the design to ensure stately impact.

A total of 9 custom containers grace this NW Natural Street of Dreams home, with consistent attention also given to the back porch.  Here you can enjoy your view all while benefiting from low maintenance containers that make a big impact. Here the container designers have switched it up by adding the beautiful 'Lavalamp' hydrangea in the background, and filling in the Russian Sage.
