This summer, we’re choosing a classic, unobtrusive color–that would be white, or perhaps the palest of grays–for patio pots and planters. If you use a monochromatic color scheme, you can mix and match size, styles, and materials without looking mismatched. And a white backdrop will focus attention on the plants that produced all that beautiful green foliage.

Here are 10 white patio pots and planters we’re currently coveting:

Above: LA-based Potted sells a selection of white pots and planters including Bauer Biltmore Pots ($150 for a pot with a 12-inch diameter) and cast stone Balls By Botanica ($45 to $50, depending on size); metal Leggy Stands are available in three heights from 12 to 24 inches and at prices ranging from $55 to $75 depending on height.

Above: From Jamali Garden, a lightweight, waterproof molded resin white Copenhagen Planter is available in three sizes at prices ranging from $38 to $78.

Above: A handmade stoneware Snowy Hanging Pot with a white glaze and 22-inch hemp twine hanger is $65 from LA-based TW Workshop.

Above: Neutral concrete colored NativeCast Alapocas Bowls come in 7-inch ($35) and 9-inch ($45) sizes. Each planter comes fitted with a drainage hole and coco fiber insert to diffuse water over the drainage hole.
