I also wanted to say Thanks for all the lovely emails regarding the blogs! I am so flattered that you are enjoying all the topics I love!
I wanted to answer why there is no comment form on the blog, deliberately by me, as I don’t write the blogs to secure responses. I write them ,as I think it is so wonderful, the world we live in and the beauty it has to offer. So I feel my small contribution each day is to bring you a bit of beauty.
Thanks so much, to all of you for taking the time to read my thoughts.
Since 1997 Luciano Giubbilei has been creating serenely beautiful gardens in locations on three continents. Giubbilei is known for the understated elegance of his designs, but is constantly evolving his approach, both in response to individual
clients and as his ideas develop. His work draws on his Italian heritage, especially the Renaissance gardens of the Villa Gamberaia in Tuscany, and a distinctively classical combination of restraint and opulent materials.
Giubbilei’s approach is a modern take on that Renaissance formality. “I like a strong axis, projecting the lines of the house out into the garden.” The elements are traditional: the green “room”, with its rectangular carpet of grass, framed by hedges and trees,
and decorated with architectural objects. The contemporary feel comes from his use of such things as woven willow panels, fastigiate hornbeams, timber decking and the simple, unadorned shapes of modern furniture, pots and plinths.
“But my gardens are really installations. I would not want you to compare what I do to an English flower garden, where there is such understanding of nature. This is different and has a different function, and the results can be quite instant.”
Have a great day!
