Help!

I am not sure why it rarely occurs to me that I can ask you all questions too when I need some help….but it just did…so I thought I would throw out a few things that I am looking for some input on.

small scale barn lights

1) I have been coveting light fixtures like these for a few years.  Problem is they are both British and I can’t find a US retailer that carries the same for our US electrical system.  I am aware of barn light electric….nothing there has ever been quite the same (too big, wrong finishes, and simply more than I want or need)….I’d like the galvanized finish, a rusted steel finish or a white finish.  I can’t figure why Home Depot or the like hasn’t figured how to make a simple mass market version for a good mass market price.  Anyone got any leads?

These lights are from Baileys and Cox and Cox.

canon ipf700 printer2)  I have a printer that I need to sell.   It is a really nice printer and it has been well cared for and lightly used.   It is a large scale (36″wide) full color printer (Canon IPF700) — that makes garden design plans look beautiful.  It would be perfect for an artist, a designer, a small architecture office…a printshop…anyone with an interest….

It is one generation off the most current model but I have spoken with the local company that services these types of professional printers (and from whom I bought this printer), and I know that they are still sold, actively supported, parts are available should they be needed, and that while I paid around $3000 for it new, they still sell these exact (used and refurbished) printers for around $1200 – $1500.  I’m asking $900….but if you are seriously interested, please, lets talk.

My parents are coming to visit for the holidays and this thing obscurely sits between the spare bedroom and the spare bathroom and I would just like to get it out of the way.

3) I am writing a book….and I am in need of some images (actually a lot of images)….if you have some great photography of gardens that are full of personality, they may be a fit for the book (I am not yet sure how much I can say about the book concept — so I am purposely being a little cagey here with the description).

I would love to see your pictures, I would love to hear from professionals that might have beautiful things in their portfolios.  I am looking for some very specific things…but I just know that if you send me some of your projects or you get in touch, we will unearth something that is just perfect!

Thanks for your help - Rochelle

Chelsea Flower Show Week

Chelsea Flower Show Week

It’s Chelsea time! I’m so excited to be pulling together a week full of coverage.  I’m not able to be there in England this year, but that isn’t going to slow the steady stream of inspiration that I plan to bring you from the show.  So fasten your seat belts and get ready, Chelsea Flower…

A Modern Eco-pond Garden

For myself, I simple need a little less austerity.  If this were my garden, I think I would have to do somethink shockingly interesting to those white painted walls.  But I do love the angle of the pool and the lines of the paving.  Those huge slabs and the twist that they present is one…

Giant Garden Lights & Teardrop Loungers

I love the stuff that Dedon brings to the market.  Damn, I just wish it weren’t so expensive.  Take these two recent introductions.  Don’t ask me what the prices are, I haven’t bothered to check – I already know it is outside of the budget.   All I can offer is that perhaps like me, this…
