Table of Contents: Patterns and Prints

August 4, 2014

The more time we spend gardening, the more we appreciate the sculptural shapes and subtle patterns and colors we see everywhere we go, not just in gardens and plantings and hardscapes, but in natural landscapes, as well. This week’s issue is about developing an eye for beauty in all the forms it can take.

Monday

  • Every year, Marie Viljoen visits her family home in the suburb of Cape Town, South Africa, where she grew up. In this week’s Garden Visit, she tells us what she’s learned from her mother’s garden.

Tuesday

  • In the sweet town of Sag Harbor, on New York’s Long Island, a self-taught gardener has built a galvanized planter that makes passersby stop and stare. We pay a Garden Visit to find out more.

Wednesday

  • In 10 Easy Pieces, we search out the best hanging chairs for those lazy crazy days of summer. (This one? A classic, called The Egg.)

Thursday

  • Jeanne investigates Ribbon Driveways for this week’s Hardscaping 101: A nice way to give your entrance a bold stripe.

Friday

  • Read Outbuilding of the Week to find out how a savvy couple turned a 100-year-old garage in LA into a tiny cottage. Yes, 100 years old in LA. We were surprised, too.

And check out Remodelista, where the editors are honing their own eye for Patterns and Prints.

Please don’t forget: It’s the last week of voting for the 2014 Considered Design Awards. You can vote for the finalists on Gardenista and Remodelista once a day until August 8th. The winners will be announced August 9th.
