2013 KC Showhouse Proposal

"Peace on my Porch"" is our concept submission to the KC symphony Designer's Showhouse for 2013. Lisa Freeman, co-owner of Halling's Greenhouse is a terrific business partner and with her plants and my pots were hopin' for a thumbs up!  

Peace on My Porch
This magnificent home with its brick façade and lovely windows has outstanding porches…each with its own opportunity for rest
and reflection.  Allow us to create a quiet sanctuary on this unassuming porch where nature can be embraced,  just outside
the doors of this busy home. A secluded spot to enjoy your
morning coffee or to catch up on the latest news with your best friend.

Emerald green leads our color palette, complimented by a range of rich purples and clean white. An assortment of annuals
will make the primary color statement.  Used in surprising ways,
these plants are proven winners for spring and summer in this Historic Kansas City neighborhood.

Containers, garden décor, and accent pieces will be
hand-made and sculpted locally of natural materials.  These include concrete, metal, and “green” recycled paper hypertufa.  Selected pieces
will sport accents of color complimenting the plantings.

Let the breezes blow…step out to the porch, rest in the
rocking chair, breathe it all in, and renew your spirit.
