Welcome to Jardin & Casa. This unique site is a portal to a wealth of information, services, and products for both the well-designed garden and the well-decorated house, focusing on vintage decor and ornaments for indoors and out.
We came in existence as an extension of my garden design shop, Jardin. As a landscape designer for over 25 years, I’ve found that decorating a landscape with amazing and beautiful trees, shrubs, and perennials is fascinating, and the enjoyment it brings my clients provides a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.
A favorite part of the design process for me has always been adding just the right garden statue, the perfect furniture set, the fountain with the most delightful water music, the structure that brings the garden info focus. As I’ve become more experienced in garden design, I’ve become more aware of the power of the right accent in the right place to delight and inspire.
My passion for vintage garden ornaments has grown to include vintage decor of all kinds. This has inspired me to bring my garden design skills inside. Principles for interior and exterior design are much the same – except that furniture and lamps don’t grow! But the common principles of color, size, balance, texture, and placement apply to home as well as garden decor.
So now I’ve decided to indulge myself – and hopefully interest my favorite clients and many new friends – by transitioning the landscape business Jardin into Jardin & Casa – where garden design becomes a doorway to an online collection of decor for your garden and home. While continuing my landscape design practice, I will also be offering vintage, antique and market finds – many of them collected during my travels in Asia and around the world – accessed through this new website as well as Facebook pages that are now being developed.
I hope you’ll enjoy your visit!
