You can also get Amish quilt hangers from some places. Some specialty quilting stores sell them, and you can also often find them at quilting festivals. I'll bet you can also find them on eBay. They are long wood strips with knobs all along the length of them that screw to tighten the strip of wood evenly along the length of the top of the quilt. They can be kind of expensive, but they look really nice.

I think it's an excellent idea, but I wonder why the designer stopped with just the one strip of planters? There is a lot of room in that block to put in more plants. So much open concrete with nothing on it. Maybe it has to do with budget constraints? Or maybe they are leaving room for market stalls to sell the food that is grown in the planters. Anyway, I think it's fantastic, but just I'm curious to know if the designer has particular plans for the open areas, or if it's all just asthetics

That's sweet! I'm going to have to remember that the next time someone I know moves to a new home.

I think it's cool, but needs some color accents to cheer it up. I live in Seattle, so I know how gray it can be here most of the year. I think I'd get depressed very quickly living in an apartment that was all black, white, and gray. Stick some greens or reds in there for some pop.

I agree with the pinks and beiges - blech! I also can't stand orange (terra cotta is about the orange-iest I will do - did it once in fact, though it was my husband's idea. Never quite fell in love with it, but it did grow on me a little after awhile, if the light was right). Teal and aquamarine are two more yucky wall colors for me. Any shade of yellow as well.

I love cranberry and chocolate as accent walls when paired with a lighter color. An entire room in those colors seems too cave-like for me, though. Tans are nice too, as long as they aren't beigey. Some shades of light, muted blues and greens are pretty, but dark blues and greens are awful.
