    That green outline you see is the shadow from the photograph. It is the storm window on the other side.

    Hi I see it's been a while, but did you ever get an answer on where the table and bench came from? could you share with me/ thanks!

  • klark
    Hi. I sure didn't! I went with a 48 inch diameter table with a leaf that extends it to 60 inches when needed! It works in the the room just fine!

    Hi, it is an antique English pine farm table with drawers, you can find these on line, but each is individual. You could try eBay or first dibs and see what they offer, or look for an English antique importer in your area.

    The cream pots are antique chimney pots from a salvage company, the large Italian olive oil urns can be found online

    Use outdoor pots and urns indoors. These pieces help add wonderful texture from materials like iron, concrete, terra cotta and ceramic. Oversized pieces make a big statement.

    If you’re not interested in using the same plant multiple times, you can use plants with a similar form (in this case round) but in varying sizes and textures. It’s less obvious but achieves a similarly pleasing effect.Teach Your Landscape Rhythm

    Growing garden varieties indoors year-around. Don't be surprised if some of your overwintering experiments are so successful that you decide to make a permanent home indoors for plants usually seen in the garden. The collection seen here is stunning and unique as well as unexpected. Diligent trimming maintains the compact forms and shows off the plants' gorgeous hues. The 3 main plants thriving in this sunroom:The Purple Heart vine in the corner is especially easy to grow; propagate it by simply sticking cuttings into soil. The silver-leaved foliage plant on the table appears to be Dusty Miller (Senecio cineraria); it's a fantastic decorative touch in this rustic, historic-looking room. The blooming bush is Abutilon, which, with proper pruning and repotting twice a year, can be kept as a houseplant for many years. Abutilon prefers a cool winter room and less water, followed by warmth and adequate moisture in the summer.Important considerations for overwintering outdoor plants:Location: Generally the best indoor location for any outdoor garden plant is near a sunny window. Don't allow any leaves to touch a cold window. Keep the plants away from drafts as well as heating vents. Because the dry winter air inside our homes can be detrimental to overwintering, a well-lit bathroom or laundry room (both humid) may be the best place for your plants. The leaves will turn brown and crisp if there's not enough moisture in the air.Timing: Allow plants to gradually acclimate to the very dry effects of indoor heating by bringing them indoors before you actually start heating your home.Care: Provide extra humidity by misting the leaves daily and consider placing the plant's container on a shallow water-filled tray lined with small stones, so the pot stands on the stones but not in the water. During the cool seasons, many plants naturally become dormant or grow at a very slow pace. Watering should be done only when the soil appears dry, but do water the plant deeply enough so that water drains from the bottom of the pot into the tray or plate. Fertilizer is generally not recommended.Cautions: Many plants are toxic and even riskier for children and animals than adults, so do your homework to determine which plants to keep out of reach if necessary.

    • Affordability. Because brick used for interior applications is generally in paver or tile form, it's thinner and less costly than exterior brick. On average you'll pay less than $10 per square foot, uninstalled. Unless you're an extremely skilled DIYer, you'll need to factor in professional installation costs (usually around $500 to $700 for an average-size room), as brick can be difficult to lay correctly. • Sustainability. Clay brick is made mostly of natural materials, such as shale, kaolin and minerals. In addition, bricks from old or demolished structures can be salvaged for new applications — particularly nice if you're aiming for a vintage effect. • Slip resistance. Left unfinished, brick has a slightly rough, textured surface that provides traction underfoot. However, if you seal it with a slick or waxy coating, you'll have to take other steps to prevent falls. • Aesthetic appeal. One of the reasons people love brick is its inherent traditional warmth, which few other materials can replicate. It evokes a sense of the past and feels like a strong, reassuring holdover from bygone days. Natural variations in its coloring give it a beautifully nuanced palette.
