This is exactly the garden I would expect from the woman who wrote Fearless Color Gardens: The Creative Gardener's Guide to Jumping Off the Color Wheel...
Subdued and understated, no. Exuberant and embellished, yes.
While it is way to chaotic for my personal taste I loved visiting. How can you not enjoy a space that is such a reflection of the owners style?
And of course it was full of beautiful plants.
And while there was a riot of color all around you the colors all played nicely together and transitioned perfectly from space to space.
Keeyla kindly opened her home and studio for us to wander through, even the second floor balcony off her bedroom. With my background in (and love of) lighting design these fixtures caught my eye.
What wonderful light to fall asleep under!
Outside on the balcony, looking down on the garden, it was shocking to see just how small the space was (and I totally missed that outdoor shower until looking at my pictures)...
I think you could visit this garden everyday for a month and still not take it all in, there were decorative touches everywhere!
I spotted Keeyla's vehicle on the street. Thank you for opening your colorful garden to us Keeyla!
