Trends, Tips and Tools From Wave Petunias and Jeremiah Brent
Think “outside the container.” This year, one of the biggest gardening trends continues to be container gardening. While the use of potted flowers anywhere and everywhere is guaranteed to brighten your home or patio, Wave and Brent encourage gardeners to get creative, and stay one gorgeous step ahead of their neighbors, by utilizing home décor ideas outside. “Wave makes it simple for every gardener to become their own interior designer,” Brent claims. “Grab accessories like candles to place in your basket container for a flower candelabra, or use a favorite teapot as a container itself.”
The garden has become an extension of the home. Indoors, it seems that each holiday or change in the weather calls for new seasonal décor, from centerpieces to novelties on your living rooms shelves. Don’t be afraid to take decorating elements outdoors to make that space feel homey and seasonal. Celebrate the fourth of July by using a flag-themed basket as a place for petunias. Or, move those mini pumpkins outside in the fall and use them as a cute, festive planter. Brent celebrates the moment he can take his interior design ideas outdoors to his patio: “After a long winter, I so look forward to spending some time transforming my patio into my living and entertaining space, with some fun décor and gardening elements,” says Brent, “and the best part is, with baskets and containers you can decorate again and again celebrating each season, each holiday, or each week if you want.”
Use color combinations to create different atmospheres within your space, from relaxed zen to summer celebration. One easy way is to surround a chaise lounge with sweet white and soft pink petunias, to create the perfect a perfect space for summer catnaps. Combining colors can help people create their best gardens, yet. Wave™ offers every color under the sun to help people create the ambiance they desire– from soft romantic pinks and yellows, to bold and exciting fuchsias, and bright blues.
Lastly, be creative, have fun, and break the rules! While the world of interior design can feel formal with lots of rights and wrongs, Wave and Brent encourage everyone to let loose outdoors by mixing textures and patterns. People can combine almost anything in a tasteful, moderated way and make it look expensive and refined. Start small –accessories and small decor items – and then work up to the big stuff – furniture and textiles. The garden is a perfect place to start experimenting because outdoors, anything goes!
