Inspiration: Color Story Grape & Orange

September 17, 2012

grape and orange garden inspiration from mag rouge issue 4I had a look through Mag Rouge this morning and was so inspired for fall container design and garden decor by this image from Ruby and Willow.  It is actually part of a whole spread but the idea of a color story around grape and orange seems so perfect for the season.  The seasons harvest – persimmons, figs, pumpkins, cabbage, orange sunflowers and concord grapes all fit nicely into the scheme and have me plotting arrangements.
