Landscape designer Deborah Nevins conceives some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the world. She designs everything from townhouse gardens to baronial estates, and her high-powered clients include David Geffen and Ian Schrager. Her latest project: a 40-acre park she is creating with Renzo Piano for a new cultural center in Athens, Greece. Nevins prides herself on landscapes that are in tune with their surroundings. “The best compliment one can pay me,” she says, “is to think I didn’t do a thing.”
Theme colored gardens reflects the personality of its owner. Landscape gardens today range in a variety of different plants as well as outdoor features. Color theme garden ideas offer an elegant way to give any backyard a burst of floral beauty, united around a single shade of your choice. Many gardens rely on eye-pleasing combinations -- either bold or subtle -- of various colors of flowers, but the skillful use of only one or two hues can produce some delightful and unusual effects.
One of the most well-known color themed gardens was the renowned White Garden planned by Vita Sackville-West at Sissinghurst Castle, but similar gardens may be planted on any scale, from large to small.
