I’ve visited Italy a few times, but had never made it to Venice. Well, my new favourite city in Italy. Venice is one of the most uniquely beautiful cities I’ve ever visited for a whole bunch of reasons, but for the purposes of this post, the gardens were extraordinary.
We were so honoured to have American publisher Hoffman Media feature our master bedroom on the cover of their new book release, “Classic Cottages – A Collection of Welcoming Homes with Personal Charm”. When Cindy Smith Cooper called and asked if we had any other house projects they could use, we were delighted when they chose to feature Forestwood as well.
I couldn’t have anticipated the continuous beauty of the historic gardens of Colonial Williamsburg. The majority of Williamsburg’s gardens were planted between the 1930’s and 1960’s. A renewed public interest in the American colonial past began to stimulate the preservation of old homes, resulting in the Colonial Revival style.
