Tivoli Outdoor Lighting

I found them!….the pictures of the unique landscape lights at Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen. The posting the other day about the ‘lotus lights’ reminded me of these. Real thought was put into each one to make sure that not only are they sculptural and purposeful as garden planters during the day, but at night the effect that they create is somewhat unexpected.

This venue, in the heart of the city of Copenhagen, is a ‘not to be missed’ attraction. It is filled with restaurants and night life and a pleasant mix of rides and attractions. I found the ambiance of the gardens and the fact that it was much more of a social gathering place than any current American theme park that I have been to, refreshing and truly enjoyable.

It woudl cause the timbers, or “legs”, as well as the hanging pots, to be necessarily different lengths that could mimic the slope of the hill. I think it would look great, complete with plants and lights.

A few days ago, I posted about the book ‘Shed Chic’ (BTW the giveaway for this book is still going…you have until tomorrow night). The book has quite a lot of references to Gypsy Caravans….which I love, but didn’t know where I would find one. So the reason I think I need to work this…

Creativity Inspiration & the Guggenheim Art Auction

Seeing the creativity of others artists is so motivating and mind opening….Chris Heiler over at Landscape Leadership made an interesting post this morning about creativity and being inspired by varied experiences.  I read it and somehow, almost immediately afterward, I found myself  on the website for the Guggenheim.  (I wasn’t trying, I just was cruising…
