Lushous in Lafayette

After doing the interiors of this gracious property over the last 25 years, I started working on the garden four years ago. The front entry was a field of ivy, and the patio a conglomerate of little pots and mismatched furnishings. We removed all the ivy, brought in new soil, and began planting. The entrance is now a field of green, with seasonal blooms to add a pop of color. By adding the large gracious planters and comfortable outdoor furnishings, we created an outdoor living room and dining room for this family that loves entertaining outdoors.
