In the Garden with Paolo Genta

I am currently in Chicago attending the Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques & Garden Fair, so it seems appropriate to end the week with photos devoted to gardens and flowers, namely those that are the handiwork of the talented Italian interior designer, Paolo Genta.  Garden design, follies, and the arranging of flowers seems to be part of Genta's bailiwick (along with interiors, of course), so it's no surprise that each figures prominently in the monograph of Genta's work.

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Jennifer, I wish I could spend a week or two living in your blog. Visiting different locations, attending all the parties, calling on these homes stuck in another time.

  2. Enjoyed your comments on the panel discussion at the Chicago Botanic Garden's Antiques & Garden Fair yesterday...we ran short on question time but wondered if you would comment on trends for the 'outdoor room'? Deirdre from

  3. My husband and I were at the CBG Fair on Friday so I was sorry to miss your event. I am posting about the Fair (and the flowers) this week. Hope the better weather on Sat. brought out a good crowd for your presentation and I hope you will write about it on the blog.
