Blog of the Week: My Urban Garden Deco Guide

My Urban Garden Deco Guide is this week’s blog of the week.  I am so excited about this site because Anne Robert – a Paris based garden blogger has a knack for finding the most interesting products for Urban gardeners.   So many of her features have not yet reached our US shores, but I look forward to seeing what is coming our way soon.

Like these…

From Ikea’s 2009 collection — I have searched the US Ikea website and find no mention of the Patio day bed designed by Wiebke Braasch, but I am so hopeful it will show up in stores later this spring.

IKEA Outdoor Daybed 2009 Veranda Collection.

and this is another favorite that I found on her site…

‘The Concrete pod . Exhibited at the Concrete Art Museum 2005 in Nagoya, Japan, this contemporary cocoon is constructed of reinforced concrete, with a height of 1700mm and the shell just 15mm thick. According to the architects, “A minor axis of a hen’s egg is about 40mm and thickness is 400 microns, so it means this concrete shell is just like an expansion of a hen’s eggshell.” And although this modern structure is “hen’s-egg thin,” Concrete pod has the enough strength to support a grown man sitting on top. Speckled with holes, the shell offers a sheltered environment while maintain a connection with the exterior environment. Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio ‘

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.
