Come On In!

I love a walled garden, but most times they are attached to a cute English style cottage or larger Manor house. So I'm quite taken with this variation on a theme designed by the fabulous Jorge L. Hernandez. If you don't know Jorge's work, I'd encourage you to wander on over, his design work is breathtaking. More rain is forecast for the weekend here - hooray! That means MOTH can't work on anyone else's house except OURS! Hope your weekend is happy, happy.

  17. the house and garden are fabulous.
    but the outdoor furniture....

  18. Millie
    Sorry, but I don't know where else to ask this question - we have exposed beams in the living/dining room, painted, you guessed it, Mission Brown. Am seriously thinking of painting them white (walls are white, lamps white, furniture dk brown, accents black and increasingly blue) What do you think? BTW - marvellous blog.
    Cheers, Denise

  19. Hi Millie,
    I'm sorry but I'm one of those sickening people that gets to indulge my passion with houses and gardens everyday.
    If you ever come to England look me up and I'll give you a personal guided tour of my current project in Somerset.
    Perhaps you could loiter a day or two and participate in our brand new Interior Design history course with amazing food and the chance to spend a night under the roof of an exquisite English Country House.
    Love to you Susan

  20. Lovely! But I'm especially excited that MOTH is house-bound!!Wishing you lots of progress!!

  21. Love this. Green, white and delicious! HAHA about MOTH being grounded. If that's what it takes, I'm praying for rain so PTH will get cracking around here!
