🌸GARDEN DESIGN UPDATE🌸 It’s been a while since we posted about the chateau garden so thought it was time for an update.  The talented @paulbangay has been working his magic and the design he has come up with is fantastic.  If anyone wants to visit Paul’s beautiful Stonefields property it is open this weekend as a fundraiser for the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation. Ticket information is available at @sakgf  Being very inexperienced gardeners our brief to Paul was pretty sketchy to say the least.  I think it consisted of telling him we wanted a garden in keeping with the chateau but not ending up with something requiring a flock of gardeners to maintain.  The interiors of our chateau are a mix of old and new.  200 year old marble fireplaces, oak panelling and parquetry are the perfect back drop for antique finds, comfy furnishings, modern art and treasures collected over years of brocanting.  Our aim was to make the rooms feel warm and welcoming with the odd surprise or two. Somehow Paul has managed to create that same feel in the garden design.  The stone walls, formal hedging and pleached trees provide the backdrop for massed perennials, wandering pathways and wildflowers.  And there are plenty of surprises we will keep secret for now.  The finished garden will be amazing ❤️❤️and I am already imagining what it will be like to wander around, to curl up with a book or just sit and contemplate life in one of the arbours and fill the chateau with 🌸🌸🌸from the garden.  The fact it is winter over there is the only thing stopping me from jumping on the next plane back to France and getting started.  As you can see from the second photo it is however an ENORMOUS project and the next step is to work out how we turn the design into reality. Our plan is to try and get it all done next year and who knows I might even end up being a passable gardener by the time it is all finished. 😭😭😭😭 #ourfrenchcountryhome #frenchliving
This design showcases the Yves Delorme garden in a new approach to the wintertime bouquet. In the contemporary fashion of neo-florist, classical flowers are artfully combined with exotic foliage, wild flowers and grasses. #yvesdelorme #yvesdelormeusa #yvesdelormebellevue #chic #sophisticated #lux #luxury #luxuryhomes #bedding #textiles #luxurybedding #homedecor #homefashion #decor #french #frenchliving #frenchlifestyle #parisian #parisianlife #parisianlifestyle #interiordesign #interiordesigner #homedesign #bellevue #bellevuewa
Baking is what initially attracted me to the kitchen. I used to spend hours on end churning out sweets for friends, neighbors and coworkers. And when I discovered French pastries, I entered into a whole new world of culinary delights that has brought me endless bliss. . Lately, my passion for baking has been overtaken by my need to feed myself, hence cooking mostly savory dishes. I did have the urge to fire up my oven again this past weekend, but couldn't decide what to make and ended up making nothing 😛 So, I’ll leave you with this pic of a chocolate loaf cake, which I didn't even make. It was a parting gift from the student chefs at the Ferrandi culinary school when I dined there a few months ago. Maybe this coming weekend I'll manage to whip something up 🍮 . . . . . . _________ #mycanonstory #foodphotography #mystoryoflight #tastingtable #gloobyfood #foodgawker #theartofslowliving #mycommontable #onthetable #storyofmytable #feed52 #thecookfeed #makeitdelicious #goopmake #bloglovinfood #foodandwine #still_life_gallery #astilllifestyle #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #thebakefeed #sweetcuisines #frenchcuisine #hautecuisines #patisseriefrancaise #dametravelerfoodie #frenchliving #forprettysake #bonappetit #dessertfirst
