Gardening Tips: Colour Your Fall Garden

One of the biggest gardening tips I ever learned was to plan a garden that had perennials blooming all season. It’s so easy to have blooms in the spring, the early summer, high summer and even into August. But to get perennials that bloom in the fall is another challenge. Here’s eight plants you can add to your perennial border to have blooms right through to the end of October (or beyond in some areas).   Crysanthemums: It’s the obvious choice….late bloomers that withstand frost, mums are the perfect fall flower. They come in a myriad of colours, heights and size of blooms. But a lot of people don’t have much success with them. Mostly because we buy the wrong mum.

Minimalist design for your home

Minimalist architecture became popular in the late 1980s in London and New York, where architects and fashion designers worked together in the boutiques to achieve simplicity, using white elements, cold lighting, large space with minimum objects and furniture. This is exactly what I like the most, and you’ve probably seen in the last posts when I was talking about large, clean, spacious spaces. At first sight, minimalist designs look as simple as a wood stick, but I promise you they can be so, so beautiful and being surrounded by such a place makes you feel positive, inspired. One of the most known minimalist architects are: – Tadao Ando – Kazuyo Sejima –John Pawson –Alberto Campo Baeza

This whole idea is so interesting, and it is perfect for babies rooms(especially girls), it is something tropical.
