Elections, thrifting and garden gurus

Posted on Sat, 21 Mar 2009 by midcenturyjo


It’s Saturday. Election day in my home state of Queensland. Don’t know the results yet as polls haven’t closed. Up early. Vote. Trawl the thrift stores, couple of house inspections (still looking, very jaded by now) and I’m exhausted. Settle in to write WINKS when I visit a site sent to us and my spirits lift. Knibb design gardens that speak to your heart. Flowing hills of grass, sweet little shell details dotting gravel paths, garden rooms and garden getaways. Think rolling hills and clipped grass, meadows and ponds. So here’s a very abridged version of WINKS. With spring sprung in the Northern Hemisphere maybe this is just the inspiration to start thinking about the garden.

Knibb Design have opened a new showroom with CL Sterling & Son in Venice, California which is what started me on this garden adventure. An invitation to the opening lead me to garden gurus and gorgeous lighting. Here are just a few examples.

The chandelier with the bronze glass spheres is stunning!
