Thanks to Rob for mentioning Terence Conran in connection with my Ikea illustration for Everyday Design. It inspired me to see what was current for this well-known designer (whose books I had read a good ten years or more ago when we were planning to remodel our kitchen). I’m a research fiend and read everything available while in the innards of redesigning something… whether kitchen or garden.
Came across some books that just might be the thing when wanting to incorporate good design into your garden spaces. And it came as no surprise then, when looking up Conran products, to find there is a line of them at the mentioned Target store.
I would like to point out that Rob of ‘Our French Garden in the Dordogne‘ is one of the most visually beautiful examples of what is possible in gardening… in my own humble opinion. He is one of those people who take wonderful photos and at the same time offer valued information. I’m always impressed when I visit his blog. I have it in my “favorites” bookmarks in my browser. Whatever bookmarking system you use, I recommend that you include his blog. For design, he makes my short list of good blogs. There are other reasons to love a garden blog, so don’t take that to mean I have a “short list” of favorites! That is his header at the beginning of the post!
Well, I meandered on too long as usual, enjoy the links and re-acquaint yourself with Terence Conran. Enjoyable!
