This week, Gardenista is in pursuit of the power of scent. A sensory bonus: Fragrant gardens are as easy on the eyes as they are on the nose.
- Julianne Moore is an Oscar winner and a savvy horticulturalist. Michelle leads us on a tour of her West Village townhouse garden. Learn how her backyard takes advantage of city shade and dampness in Design Sleuth: Julianne Moore’s Staghorn Ferns. (And see her kitchen–one of our all-time favorites–in the Remodelista book and 5 Design Tips from Julianne Moore.)
- For the sweetest smelling roses, Michelle turned to the florists at Odorantes in Paris, where blossoms are arranged by scent. Silvery pink and exceptionally fragrant Madame Pierre Ogier is shown here. See the full lineup in 10 Easy Pieces: A Parisian Florist’s Favorite Fragrant Roses.
- The snow keeps coming, but 11 Easy Winter Floral Arrangements are a reminder that spring is up next. Here, Boston-based Justine pairs the season’s earliest lilacs with a grocery-store tulip “for a dash of unexpected lipstick color.”
- In Hardscaping 101, Janet weighs the pros and cons of Steel Factory-Style Windows and Doors: “Their elegant, narrow sight lines offer unobstructed views, blurring the lines between indoors and out.” What’s not to like? Read on.
