Saladino Inspired Front Garden

My client sent me this photo of her garden in the morning light a month after planting.

 

The garden is intended to evoke the french chateau feeling of the house. Everything chosen is drought tolerant and can be easily managed but will never look lackluster.
Russian Olive trees, pygmy pea shrubs enmass, Walker’s low Catmint, and […]

Chateau de Gudanes

These beautiful images are from a new publication, Evoke magazine that a client introduced me to. So dreamy!
Built in the 1700’s the chateau is located in a small village in the south of France nestled amongst the midi-pyrenees.

What a dream it would be to get married here…

Purchased by an Australian couple in 2013, it is currently […]

Naturalized Garden Design

That time of year is starting, consultations for landscape design while there is still snow on the ground! It is impossible to get inspired while I look out at the recent dumping of snow but thank goodness for Pinterest.

I am also thinking for in here, […]

 Fresh evergreen wreaths starting at $10 for the x-small and up from there to $40 for the base large wreath with bow. Pricing depends upon each individual wreath aesthetic.
Previous clients save $5 and $2 from every wreath will be donated to the Pembina Valley Humane Society!!
Foraged wreaths are obviously cheaper using found natural objects […]

We have lights!

Anyone who has ever undertaken an extensive renovation will know that once you have lights and working outlets it is a huge step forward!!
With the drywall now finished and painting finished we had our electrical  somewhat wrapped up. It feels amazing to be that much closer to being ready to move in!

High/Low…Canopy Bed

I have been lusting after this Italian Campaign Canopy Bedframe from Anthropologie for over a year, but it was always quite a bit over my price range.
