10. Olive Trees in a Terra-Cotta PotFor anyone dreaming of sunshine or the Mediterranean, a mini potted olive can be a thoughtful gift that lasts for years. Pair an olive plant with a terra-cotta pot for a classic look. Most small olive plants are grown as standard trees, and the form is particularly cute when strung with copper wire lights up the trunk and around the foliage for the holiday season. Olive trees thrive in full sun, so plan on moving plants outdoors in mild climates or to a sunny window.
Make a match. A more mellow hello is offered by this pale door, which perfectly matches the gentle tone of the stone walls. And it proves that you don’t need to shout to get noticed. Mini olive trees in terra-cotta pots on either side of the door break up the color block and add to the rustic feel.
54. Two olive trees in terra-cotta pots mark an entrance that nearly blends into its surroundings. In this case, it’s the accessories and small details you notice, like the spade door knocker and the lines in the stone wall. Door paint: Stony Ground No. 211, Farrow & Ball
