Like us, Gardenista has gone down a rabbit hole that leads to all things French. Get your cloud-shaped boxwoods, striped awnings, and zinc window boxes here.
Above: In Shopper’s Diary, Mimi and Michelle drop in on Tom des Fleurs in his 100-square-foot Paris flower shop that he designed himself. “During the redesign,” Michelle writes, “Tom literally dreamed about the space: the running water, the walls covered with frescoes, the small loft where he could live, floating about the sea of flowers.”
Above: The subject of this week’s 10 Easy Pieces, Window Awnings, are “like baseball caps for houses.” We want one–and a Citröen, too.
Above: How do you like your hedges? In this week’s Gardenista Roundup, Barbara presents boxwoods in every shape and size, including these plush cloud-shaped renditions in a Provence garden belonging to former Hermés designer Nicole de Vésian.
Above: Erin’s DIY Bouquet Garnis are “herbal tea bags” intended for cooking, but they’re pretty enough to put on display.
Above: “Make outdoor garden features visible from indoors”–lesson number one in 10 Garden Ideas to Steal from France. Note the zinc window boxes and the outdoor mirrors.
Above: In this week’s Garden Designer Visit, Deborah Nevins, whose work extends from NYC’s Tribeca to Athens, Greece, shares her own private spread–complete with “hornbeam room” shown here.
