My dear Dana Frigerio lives in in one of my most favorite places – the Amalfi Coast of Italy – can you imagine designing gardens there?!? So of course her blog is duly inspirational and beautiful. Surprisingly Dana says that she was never interested in gardening when she was young, but now cultivates a kitchen garden and enjoys that hard work as she gets older.
My Favorite things: Dana Frigerio
I love art books and garden design magazines
I love the old tin watering cans
Shabby chic flower shop in my town, where you can drink an espresso …enclose in antique vases, baskets wicker and many flowers
Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Sicily
What do you do to find inspiration?
I find my inspiration looking to any object in my house or looking to images in my books, they can also be paintings but also from Internet, is an inexhaustible source of ideas . it all depends on your creativity and imagination. This work gives me the opportunity to create always an original project because the location and customer requirements are always different.
