Daily Garden: La Terrasse Rouge

Clinging to the slopes of a typical neighborhood of Marseilles, this terrace of 25 square meters offers  was designed by Claire Delahaye of SlowGarden in Marseilles France.
By hooking a window trompe l’oeil on the wall, she created a new perspective that makes this place more alive.

I am also and loving the layered cushions, it gives a playful ‘princess and the pea’ look as well as allowing for an easy change up of colors and styles in the garden.

Claire’s work largely seems to be on terraces in the south of France (my envy!!) , and her playful style is worth checking out for it’s interesting use of color, paint, and funky furniture.

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.

    The stacked cushions look like yoga mats with cotton slipcovers. Which, come to think of it, would be so totally washable – a great combo.
    Love the cheerful color. Some of that red will fade in the sun – but that is part of the process- like a plant getting bigger. Fading will only make this collection of shades richer and add age patina. Well done.
