Italian Pots and Italian Furniture with Princeton Pots and Princeton Design Guild
Wow!I bet you are wondering where have I been this summer? Have I been gardening for clients? You bet I have. It has been so busy that I have not been very good at keeping up with pictures at all. Thought I would share a client's lovely bluestone patio designed by Princeton Design Guild and beautified with some Italian outdoor furniture that we picked out for the client. We have a few more pieces coming for this client that will compliment the patio dining furniture.
We selected some graphite grey Imported Italian pots and I jazzed them up with some annuals, tropicals and some perennials that will last until frost. Nothing nicer on a patio than to bring in some three dimensional plantings that work with the space and align with a client's decor.
I encouraged the client to go with a mandarine cushion for the chairs on this blue select patio and they look stunning. Unfortunately the client took them in. When the club chairs arrive I will photograph them with a few more Italian pots coming on the next container from Italy.
It is fun for me as a garden designer to work with an architect/builder during the project so that a client is left with a truly finished product that is now a "green living space" ready for entertaining and relaxing.
