Affordable Modern Designs for Outdoor Living
The High Desert Design Council is always posting great looking design ideas which I find so inspiring. I recently found some great ideas of my own in the last two issues of Garden Design. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these prices were very affordable, something I don't usually find in this magazine. These are also items I would consider using myself and recommend to clients. I particularly like the lantern since my husband and I are in love with Danish lighting designs, our favorite being the PH5 by Poul Henningsen. When we were in Denmark in 2007, we looked into getting a used one, but even a used one was very expensive. But somehow, most Danes had them in their homes. Priorities, priorities I guess.
Born again gardener. I started gardening professionally in college but thought I needed a "real job". It took me years, but now I'm back and loving every minute of it. I have a great balance of quiet working time at my table and time outside talking with clients and walking landscapes.
