Garden trends: Worldly (part 10 of 11)

Ok – so I am coming clean, I lost track of this series somewhere around part 5…..and to be honest, I am not sure I will complete parts 5-9 and 11, I have simply lost interest….but I really want to do part 10.  We will see what happens, but when something starts to feel like a struggle, then I just can’t justify forcing my self to continue….so if one of the undone trends starts to strike my fancy again, I will give it a go.

So what was trend # 10 according the Garden Media Group?  It was called ‘Worldly’ and was described as
an embracing of the world of  ‘bazaar’, vibrant colors, textures, sights and sounds. Asian, African, Indian, and Mid-Eastern influences showing up in patterns, textures, colors and styles through out the garden.

I collected together some pictures of beautiful gardens, events, and accessories that can inspire you to create your own worldly garden.

Images from top to bottom. The first four images are from E-Mosaik a store in LA that sells and rents furniture and accessories and plans beautiful Moroccan styled parties. The Hammered Table is available through West Elm . The orange Indian garden wedding image is from Style Me Pretty. The lights are from E-Mosaik and the Parasol is from The Indian Garden Company and the bench is from GI design.
The Persian water feature is from this website.
And finally at the bottom, if you don’t have the energy to create your own worldly garden you can visit the Moroccan garden of the Figueroa Hotel in LA.

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.

    Here’s a great link for Moroccan tiles and inspiration you might want to check out. They’re in NYC an worth a visit next time you’re down that way.
