Why can’t scientists figure out how to freeze frame spring? Jasmine, apple blossoms, the first climbing roses: every flower in my garden is currently trying decide whether it wants to be pink or white or some variation I can only describe as a blush fade. You can see why we decided to dedicate this week to spring’s pastel palette.
What’s ahead: Join us for an exclusive tour of a modern version of a white garden later today. We’ve also rounded up pastel lawn chairs, attractive drip irrigation systems (they exist!), and a DIY Easter tabletop that Erin worked all last week to perfect (eggs are involved).
- SF-based architect Barbara Chambers gives us an exclusive tour of her own newly designed indoor-outdoor garden (and tips for connecting your outside space with your interiors) in this week’s Architect Visit.
- Erin gives us step-by-step instructions for creating the perfect writer’s shed in this week’s Steal This Look.
- We can’t resist a DIY Easter centerpiece. Erin offers step-by-step instructions for how to get your eggs to hatch wheat grass in this week’s DIY Project.
- Even the most reluctant gardener on our staff is taken with the virtues of a good Drip Irrigation system. Christine explains what won her over in this week’s Hardscaping 101.
- Looking for a last-minute idea to import some springtime to your Easter tabletop? Erin’s easy DIY Project takes advantage of forsythia season.
Over on Remodelista, we’re also celebrating spring’s Shades of Pastel. Here’s a Sneak Peak at the week ahead.
