On Wednesday of this week I visited one of my favorite places, Snug Harbor Farm located in Kennebuck, Maine. If you are fortunate enough to live in the New England area, this is a must. If you are visiting , you should add this spot to your list. The farm is an absolute feast for the eyes, with every available topiary, plant, vessell and sooooooo much more. Tony's plants have been used for styling in magazines and books for years. When you see these beauties, you can totally understand the interest. Martha Stewart, Caroline Rhome, Bunny Williams and Kelly McGuill ,are just a few of the faithful die hards that visit and purchase.
This simple technique that I often think of when dressing is so beautiful in interiors. I've been a huge fan of layering with the likes of wood, marble remnants, and basically anything that looks interesting. I have wooden planks in various sizes that I add to my table tops and counters to create interest. I love to then add a topiary or plant above to create a eye catching detail. Such a simple but really effective design tool.
