Garden inspiration

A walk through the divine Tuileries in Paris is a walk through garden heaven…and delightful inspiration for Casa Debbio. I think I could manage some of the flowers.

I might have to do without the magnificent backdrops…

I don’t have avenues of chestnut trees.

But I also don’t have the crowds of people walking through.

Wandering through Paris is an inspiration for many things. I will quote designer Valentino here.

“I love beauty…is not my fault.” (Imagine that with a strong Italian accent)

  6. Isn’t that gorgeous, i love the mixed flower borders, they’re like a slice of flower meadow. You must have felt like putting your gardening gloves on straight away. Poor you – you have to keep trudging around Paris instead!

    • Yes, it was a bit of a chore to continue to pound the Paris pavements. I am now back at Casa Debbio to do some pruning. I look forward to spring so I can continue planting.

  9. Oh Debra, I love your droll humour! You have a stunning setting at Casa Debbio with the magnificent mountains around your lovely home. Each place has its own unique beauty and Casa Debbio is just as unique. You have a keen eye for the aesthetic. We can be inspired by famous gardens, Claude Monet’s for example. He puts his personal stamp on his garden. Likewise, you’ll put your own signature in yours at Casa Debbio. Happy planning!
