Cape Cod renovation

These urns were purchased in two different colors and painted to use as a pair. The ferns used are called Kimberley Queen and they stand more upright and have a stronger leaf structure than a Boston fern.

Hi Dianne,

These ferns are called "Kimberley Queen" ferns. They thrive year round in the south but in the northeast they are annuals. I believe they would do well in your area....they prefer filtered morning sun...I agree with you they are beautiful and the leaf structure is very hearty and firm unlike the Boston ferns.

These urns I purchased in the early spring at Homegoods....they were two different colors so I painted them black as they were the exact size and shape .....not sure of the exact height but I bought then for 29.00 each...I know Ballard Design sells them in small...medium and large...these are medium size....

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Making an Entrance Grand
This doorway tells so much about the interior of the house - classic columns, urns overflowing with ferns, and the house number with the shell detail express the homeowner's personal style.
Ferns in urns. Classic urns give potted plants added height and an elegant presence. These arrangements of ferns with English ivy flowing down at the base stand up to the scale of the entryway.
