Before & After Garden: A Brazilian Extravaganza #6

before and after mountain garden

Ok this is it — have you had fun today?  I certainly have.

And it is time to share with you the source of all this Brazilian awesomeness.  Rosenbaum is a Brazilian design firm that did all of these designs for a local makeover TV show called Lar Doce Lar (Home Sweet Home).  You can see even more transformations (which go way beyond the gardens) at their website.

I am speculating, but this garden seems very inspired by the mountain in the background.  The colors that were chosen are just perfect with that rock in the background.

Also – you might remember this garden from this post about Cheetah Style.  The whole Cheetah thing is still so much of what I am loving for gardens.

But now, you can see what it looked like before it became a completely cool and hip place to hangout.

Do you have a favorite from today?  I would love to hear what you thought of all this South American Style inspiration.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I loved this, especially the second one. That blue paint was perfect with the plants.

    I like this colorful style. It´s so different to our style in North Europe. I think Luis Barragan is a good exemple. A good Webside you find here:
    Have fun.
