Mosaic Monday: Architect's Garden, Part IV








I'm back with more photos from my visit to the Architect's Garden, in Pottersville, NJ.  This is the pool house, which includes an attached conservatory.  The conservatory is filled with the usual accoutrements of planting -- clay pots and plant markers -- as well as a plethora of wonderfully quirky antiques.  The owners have a design firm, Tendenze Design, which includes architectural and interior design as well as landscape architecture services.  When my friend Toni and I visited as part of the Garden Conservancy's Open Days program, we spent a great deal of time wandering through the conservatory, in awe of all the fabulous pieces.  My favorite was the beautiful white tureen, although I also loved the black iron classical urns.  And I would love to have that antique lantern electrified and hanging above my kitchen table.  :)

Here are the instructions to join today's post:

  2. I could spend a few hours myself in the conservatory looking at everything. The plant tags caught my eye and I think it would be nice to swim in that tranquil looking pool.
