Mantles, tables, chests, dressers, bookshelves, and their flotsam/jetsom, tell me how to arrange clients gardens.
Do they like simplicity, focal points, pairs, drifts, matchy/watchy, shiny, bright colors, rustic, fru-fru, farm, castle, muted hues, eclectic, showy & etc.
Junking recently I found this dresser for the foyer of my new office. Once sited I went to the kitchen & started grabbing blue/white. Free is good.
On its way home, above/below.
What is the Garden Design indicated by the top of this chest with the blue/white? Girlfriend obviously likes pairs & focal points. Biggest platter is a gorgeous antique iron gate. Tulipiers are brick/stone columns with pair old urns and the smaller plates a flagstone path. Surface of the chest is groundcover Asiatic jasmine.
THIS is how I see interiors. Source material for the garden.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Never anticipated my new office being this fun, 'camp chic' style. Nor psycho-analyzing my own table top style.
