Topiary Chic

After my visit to Aerin Lauder's house and store in the Hamptons, I decided that I needed a topiary.  Since I don't have a house like hers above, I settled for a small myrtle topiary and a larger ball topiary in a blue and white pot similar to the one in her store.  It's a great way to add some life and color to your home, inside and out, as you can see from these examples. Now that people are sick of the fig trees, this could be an elegant new option.

This one looks like it's in an old champagne bucket.

My new topiary the flower market in a pot from Pearl River Mart. I've nicknamed it the Leaning Topiary of Pisa.  If anyone has a source for the one in Aerin's store, please let me know.
