Garden Gallery: Claude and Corinne’s Hotel Droog Fairy Tail Garden

Droog garden renny ramakers
Filled with ideas, this garden was inspired by the International Festival of Gardens in Chaumont, France (of course, why else do you go to these wonderful events if not to bring back a few ideas?).

In response to her visit to Chaumont, Renny Ramakers (We’ve talked about her before)  the founder of Droog, commissioned Corinne Détroyat and Claude Pasquer  to create something that mixed art and nature in the garden for the Droog Hotel in Amsterdam.renny ramakers garden for droog

Each sculpture has a function. The Woodstockchair is both a design chair and a reserve for wood logs and a shelter for insects. The Graines de Pluie © gives height to this garden, that is surrounded on all sides by buildings, and it serves as a nesting box and bird feeder. Here, as in Chaumont-sur-Loire, you feel fairy tail fantasy of childhood.

Panels on the side walls hide nasty spots of construction and to support the mirrors.  The mirrors reflects the sun onto shady places and they give many others points of view.

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.
