Mary Ann, Annie and I each in our own way embrace a collected look in our decorating styles. Collectively we coined a hashtag #thecollectedlook on Instagram a few months ago. We invite everyone to follow and use our hashtag and share their collective style. Each week each of us picks a favorite and we feature them on our feed. We have had a lot of fun with this so we decided to do a feature on our blogs of some feeds you might enjoy following. Let’s take a look today at Instagrammers who Rock the Collected Look in their Gardens. A little beauty will be good for our souls.
A Collected look has personality, interest, and history. Collecting and gathering things from your travels, flea markets, and or art galleries creates a sense of where you have been and where you are going. This can hold true for your garden as well. Create winding paths of different materials, add structure with old or handcrafted arbors, and fences. Create seating areas and resting places with items from different eras and styles. Your garden will be more interesting if you use your imagination and add your own personal style.
This gorgeous luxury vacation rental in Provence @provencepoirers is surrounded by gorgeous mature gardens in the typical French style (a personal favorite of mine). Interesting furnishings and pottery from the region are scattered about the grounds.
Probably everyone on earth is following @inagarten We love her recipes but her gardens are lovely as well.
Debby Tenquist does landscape and textile design. You can follow her @debbytenquist She features some of the most beautiful gardens in the world. This is her terrace in South Africa. She has a second feed @botanicatrading that features her gorgeous textiles
Brooke and Steve Gianetti’s beautiful garden in Ojai oozes the collected look. Everywhere there are interesting garden ornaments, like this faux bois table, perfection. You can follow them @velvetandlinen.
Interior & Landscape designer @loithai gardens in both Washington D.C and Maine are everyone’s favorites. Love how the faded teak furniture mirrors the stone colors.
Who rocks the collected look better than our favorite Contessa @antiquegoddess? This time of year Elizabeth will be featuring her charming garden. It is like entering another world.
Designer @isabellopezquesada ‘s gorgeous terrace in France. I adore her style.
Author & blogger @vickiarcher ‘s London terrace. Dreamy isn’t it?
Are you following my friend @debraphillips_5thandstate? Debra does both interior and exterior designs and is one of the most talented people I know. She also has a brick and mortar store @sgneva If you need something dm them. We don’t want to lose our brick and mortar stores during this crisis.
I hope this post filled with garden goodness brightened your day a bit during this difficult time. I will do another post featuring more beautiful gardens of Instagram soon.
Be sure and pop over to visit Mary Ann and Annie to see who they featured today. Don’t forget to join the fun and follow our hashtag #thecollectedlook , and follow @classiccasualhome, @most_lovely_things, and @cindyhattersley. A little Insta therapy will be good for us!
