One great way to incorporate greenery is with planters.
Sometimes the spring/summer season sneaks up on you, but you can’t neglect the task of beautifying your patio or deck. One great way to incorporate greenery is with planters. With such a range of sizes and styles available, you can really say something with planters.
When choosing planters, you can find something that provides contrast or select pieces that blend with the architecture, outdoors or indoors. There is such a variety of textures, colors, and shapes of planters –big pots filled with gorgeous plants make a major statement in a great room or sun room. Or, you can group smaller planters together on a wall, the stairs, or a console.
You can further customize planters with what you fill them with. The contents of your planters have just as much potential for variety, from flowers and herbs to trees and tall grasses. When choosing plants, take into consideration their height, texture, and color. Some plants repel pests while others make pleasant sounds when the wind moves through them.
How do you decorate with planters?
CTC&G: Gorgeous Georgian
I’m so pleased to have one of my designs featured in the January 2016 issue of Connecticut Cottages and Gardens!
I’m so pleased to have one of my designs featured in the January 2016 issue of Connecticut Cottages and Gardens! This Greenwich home belongs to a family who relocated from UK. They wanted a complete remodel of the home to make it suitable for their lifestyle. The design is formal enough to respect the architecture of the home but with an ease to accommodate a young family and their dog. I hope you’ll pick up a copy of the magazine to read more about the details of this project!

I was so happy to participate in the 2014 Pink Aid Fashion Show and Luncheon by Connecticut Cottages and Gardens at Mitchells of Westport. The event, which raises money for the fight against breast cancer, includes an auction of pink chairs and other pink items donated by designers. I contributed a chair, which you can see in the November 2014 issue of CTC&G, along with all of the other pink items created by some very talented designers.
I donated this great antique, Midcentury chair covered in a geometric Lanza Jaipur Pink from Romo. Pick up a copy of CTC&G to see the other pink items!
Connecticut Cottages and Gardens Project of Note
The finished potting shed gave my client the ideal space for spending time on his favorite hobby.
Last summer I shared my plans for a potting shed design that was a work in progress. Looking back on those initial plans, it’s interesting to see how many of those details were incorporated into the final design. And yes, it is possible to use grow bulbs with sconces! The finished potting shed gave my client the ideal space for spending time on his favorite hobby and has now been featured by Connecticut Cottages & Gardens as a Project of Note.
