Garden Gate

Garden Gate

The eclectic blend of Japanese style roof, Craftsman style river rock piers, Art Nouveau style wrought iron and Arts and Crafts lighting all come together here to make a visually stimulating entry to a garden. Madison Park, Seattle, WA, USA, Eclectic 2010

Curb Strip Garden

Curbside Boxwood Parterre

Most sidewalks spur you to rush, some ask you to pause, a few invite you to linger. The boxwood parterres in a strong but simple layout is sophisticated. The play of light and shadows is wonderful. The topiaries add height interest. The spring flowers filling the parterres are charming. Special note: the witty boxwood topiary “flower baskets” in the daffodils!

Art Moderne

Art Moderne

I love the use here of an austere cream stucco and black paint scheme, highlighted with “just a splash of color.” The glass block balcony with the porthole window door is an Art Moderne archetype. Note, the solid  black entryway door with the winsome, tiny red window. Madison Park, Seattle, WA USA, Art Modern, 1930.
