French Garden

A large oil painting of a field of poppies in the Provence region of France hangs above the dining room table, capturing the essence of the Pebble Beach, California, owners’ experience when they visited Europe during their honeymoon.

The client desired a garden reflecting a provincial landscape, yet suited for their children to play in. They wanted a feast for the eyes when standing on the deck looking out into the garden.

Drifts of lavender and rosemary release their scent when touched on a stroll through the guest house. All plant material was hand selected and carefully placed to achieve a complimentary contrast of colors and textures.
