My Favourite Blog – Gardenista

Many people ask me where I get my inspiration for my design work.

Sometimes it can be wandering in my local neighbourhood, from books and magazines I’m reading or images I’ve seen online. One of the most fantastic blogs that I subscribe to and love to make time to read is Gardenista.

Launched in May 2012 by a former New York Times columnist, Gardenista calls itself a “Sourcebook for Cultivated Living”. It definitely is this and so much more!

Loved my many – including Martha Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow on GOOP, Elle Decor and British Vogue – it is an addictive site of part magazine, part source book, with the best style details, plus shoots in real people’s houses.

Along with it’s ‘sister’ site Remodelista, it’s clean, modern taste in design is what floats my boat.

Currently, they have a competition running in the US Considered Design Awards 2015. Readers get a chance to vote in different categories such as Amateur Small Garden and Edible Garden. Jump on board and enjoy meandering through some amazing green spaces and real homes and vote on your favourite landscape design.

Click on this link to check out some fabulous ‘garden rehabs’. There is nothing like before and after shots to show you just how achievable garden transformations can be.

Even though this site is based in the US they have at times travelled to our fine shores. There are plenty of Australian gardens showcased on this site including Melbourne garden design. In February Margot Guralnick showcased our MIFGS Meadow garden which we collaborated with local business Archiblox.
