Pish Posh Garden Design Style Inspiration

It’s Friday and I am headed to Maine for a long weekend (so no posts) – but I am planning (weather permitting) to attend the Garden Conservancy’s open days in Sedgewick – so I hope to have lots to share on Monday/ Tuesday.
Anyway, here is my latest Can You Make This Into a Garden?

When she arrives, this is generally the scene….with a beautiful hedgerow studio umbrella shading the welcome crew.

The table is set Mercury Glass Taper Candle holders from Copper Proper.  Snake skin Melamine Plates  and interesting dragon fly  serving bowls from Vivre. Furniture from McKinnon and Harris (DuVAL Collection).  Fur Blanket from Fabulous Furs.

Classy and stylishly simple, I think this garden would be planted  to be a generally white garden except that it would have a lot of texture  and would shy away from being a frilly type of white garden opting instead to play with other colors that don’t come in flowers but rather in leaf textures of out of seasnon flowers.

This is my idea of the basis of this garden’s planting. Green, Luxurious, textural, and rich.
Palms, Peonies, Helebores, Carex comans ‘Bronze’, and purple heuchera.
