Is your garden picture perfect and show house ready? If not, consider adding some of these unique plant species we used in the Elle Decor 2012 Modern Life Concept House garden. With a ton of exciting design ideas and amazing pieces in the show house, not everyone is going to pay attention to the greenery. However, gardeners and horticultural aficionados will appreciate that we’ve managed to squeeze in no less than 23 different plant species into this small garden. The plants provide a neutral backdrop for the furniture and sculptures while tying in to the delicious yellow and gold color scheme Michael Tavano created with the custom pergola and luxurious fabrics.
