Can You Make This Into a Garden? I love this feature and I love this sketch, but this one has been a bit difficult and honestly I really don’t want to call it done. It seems there is so much more that could be added…I am hoping you might have some more ideas. I mean really this girl looks like slightly complicated fun and the garden she inspires from me is dramatic and theatrical. This might well be my favorite illustration so far, which is perhaps why I am having trouble coming up with the garden for her?

This is what I have so far…
Can you believe this fireplace? I am not sure how it will fare being outside, but I suspect it would be fine in a covered porch. Available from Bordelet .
She is a totally dramatic princess and the flowers around her should be be likewise.

A little on the dangerous side, but totally worth it, (I wish I could find a local nursery to sell me some). Her garden would house other dramatic beauties like Castor Bean and Abutilon

And this is where I begin to struggle. I feel like she might smoke…and need a cool outdoor ash tray. Should her furniture be sleek and modern or perhaps more boho vintage? And containers seem like they should be large and aged terracotta, but does that really go? What do you think? What does she inspire in your mind? I would love to hear your ideas and continue to evolve this mood board. Comment with your thoughts and I will evolve and re-post.
I love the idea of collaboratively designing by blogging… looking forward to hearing from you…
