Trending on Gardenista: Hedge Fun in France

July 18, 2014

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. 

TomdeFleurs daughter Mimi Giboin Gardenista
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.”
Deborah Nevins hornbeam gardenista
Above: In this week’s Garden Designer VisitDeborah Nevins, whose work extends from NYC’s Tribeca to Athens, Greece, shares her own private spread–complete with “hornbeam room” shown here.
  • The subject of this week’s 10 Easy Pieces, Window Awnings, are “like baseball caps for houses.” We want one–and a Citröen, too.
  • 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.
  • Erin’s DIY Bouquet Garnis are “herbal tea bags” intended for cooking, but they’re pretty enough to put on display.
  • “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.
  • The finalists have been announced and now it’s your turn to weigh in. From now to August 8, place your votes in the  and Gardenista 2014 Considered Design Awards.
