Before & After: Priscilla & Ivan’s Artamus Hall

This before and after definately makes into the Studio ‘g’ before and after hall of fame (that doesn’t currently exist — but when it does…..)

Here is the before:


Oh this is so exciting…..

I wish every homeowner had this level of vision, sense of personal taste and sheer guts.

Of course it helps that Priscilla and Ivan are design and build experts… can see more of their amazing portfolio here.  (we are talking modern bouldin castles, chateaux,  and houses with more character than you can shake a stick at).

are you ready for it…..


Totally WOW right!?!  I was utterly speechless myself when I saw it.  Apparently they ‘lifted’ the facade by 5 feet (I have no idea what that might have entailed) but it worked.  WOW!

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.
