Container garden ideas: a touch of hot color

These gorgeous containers are at the entrance of one of my favorite home shops, Cocoon, in Geneva, IL. I’ve been noticing something about my favorite container compositions: a bit of orange. Even a small amount of hot color keeps things from looking too fussy. The black painted container sets everything off beautifully and can go traditional or modern (if you simplify the plantings a bit like this next container). I’m definitely painting my window planter boxes black.
