Haute Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are everywhere right now in decor---pink, blue, purple, white, faded green... For us in the South, they were gone long ago except for the homes that bought the Endless Summer variety. For those up North, they seem to be wrapping up in glory. In addition to them being all over the Hampton Designer Showhouse, they seem to be making a bit a lead over the all time winner peony. It's obvious that I love flowers...goodness knows I paint enough of them! Here's an homage to hydrangeas:

Via Decorista. She might have my all time favorite design blog tied with La Dolce Vita. They aren't constantly trying to make a buck promoting sponsors and silly product features. So, back to the picture --not only are the pillows popping, but love the floor canister filled with fresh blooms.

House of Interior Designer Patricia Fisher. She has a different color (which I'll explain later) in every room freshly cut...plus a full suite of bursting bushes off her patio! Featured in Traditional Home.  
Love that back splash.

So, in that tone, here are my Haute Hydrangeas in Acid. For most hydrangeas, they will be in an acidic soil and bloom blue and purple.

Haute Hydrangeas in Alkaline. I wanted the pinks to show some edge for their unique color. Very hard to get the pinks, but you can doctor the soil to get them this color.
