Before & After: Nicholas’s Rooftop Garden in Lyon, France

Whose ready to get back into a regualr schedule? ME!!  While I am not going to shut-up any time soon about Leaf Magazine (have you read it yet?)  — I am going to take a little break to try and get back to some regularlity.  First up a Tursday before and after — right here, right now, on Friday — a day late — but whose on time, right?

This is from Nicolas Lebas in Lyon France.  He is a garden designer there and made over this roof for a friend…to be honest, I am not sure if there is actually a ‘before’ shot in this bunch, so I am going to just share my favorites of the afters….

I am particularly enjoying the casual and slightly rustic vibe that doesn’t try too hard — and the views!! (Is that the Cathedral de Notre Dame in Lyon in the background?).  As per usual, Southern France is endlessly appealing and oozing style.
