Towards the front end of your Garden Design, choose a color trinity for your exterior. House, furniture, gates, light fixtures, pots, hardware, fencing, watering cans, door mats, knobs, etc. In addition, choose a name for your home/garden. Onc
e you've done both, order note cards, name cards, using the color trinity.
.
Green-Brown-White is the classic color trinity for over 2,000 years. Chosen by the best minds across centuries, seemingly chosen by Providence. Magic in Green-Brown-White ? It's unique for all permutations.
.
Where do I pull colors from for clients? Inside the house. Art, furniture, wallpaper, rugs, etc. Uniformly, once colors suggested, "I love that !" Of course.

In addition to Green-Brown-White, you get to choose a subsidiary color/s. To be used as hints, and also pulled from interiors, especially your art. Scrumptious Green-Brown-White, below. Saved for colors but seems more a current USA political poster.

Through many years of choosing exterior Green-Brown-White, something pops immediately. At first painting, home/garden recede into their niche, radiating considered contentment, an air of inevitability, and timelessness.

Humbling, this moth, below.

This Spanish moon moth is flaunting his good looks in the handful of days he has left to live. Unable to eat after emerging from his cocoon, the adult devotes all of his remaining time and energy to reproduction.

Aside from Green-Brown-White, above, all those subsidiary colors. Be still my heart.

There's little I encounter, not seen thru a Garden prism.

An answer to my question, yesterday, about Lucinda Wharton:

"Curious about her parents, how they raisedthis old soul child."

Lady Rebecca Eildon Courtenay (b. 1969), is married to Jeremy Lloyd Wharton;they have three daughters: Alice Lucinda Wharton (b. 1998), Emilia Rose Wharton(b. 1999) and Tatiana Elizabeth Wharton (b. 2002).

-the above from Lucinda Wharton's grandfather's Wikipedia entry

.
Thank you, The Hunting House, would not have known where to begin. Lucinda's love for her home in the country, palpable.
