Orange & Pink | It's a good thing.

via Luxury.com
I received a huge response from the images I posted from the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, so I thought I would offer more Orange and Pink inspiration for your Modern Garden.







The inspiration for my Small Space Showcase Garden was from this image. I don't have a memory from my early childhood that does not include orange and pink. These colors are coming back and now more so in the garden.

If you think orange and pink are only suitable in Miami, think again.

I can't think of another color scheme that says Spring or Summer more that orange and pink.  Mother Nature tells us that from the colors of fruit produced, flowers that bloom and the most beautiful summer 
sunsets.

Landscape Architects have also gone back to a orange and pink color scheme for projects.

Stay tuned, as I plan to give you ideas of how to add orange and pink to your own garden with selective plant choices and d.i.y. furniture.  Follow by email too so you won't miss anything!  Good things are coming from Blooming Desert's Daily Dirt!

In the meantime, you can go to my Orange & Pink Pinterest Board for more inspiration!

Do you have something that you love that is orange & pink? I would love to hear about it!

  1. While I love all of the examples you've offered I struggle with this combo in my own garden. I adore orange accents and sadly many of the plants I love have pink flowers. If you look at your images they are all of hot bright colors, and many of them in desert light, which is so different than my muted Oregon light. I'd love to issue a design challenge and see what you come up with in soft tones and muted light. Like under my grey Portland sky. Pretty please?

    1. I understand! I'm working on a post for incorporating these colors into any garden. Would you like to email me a picture of a spot that you are struggling with? info@shopsteellife.com Thank you for your feedback, Danger Garden!
