What makes a Backyard Glamorous...

Today was the set up day for the Backyard Glam Tour in Mississauga, Ontario. I'm looking forward to seeing what my fellow designers put together. What we did at Evelyn Eshun Design was to take an already gorgeous 'british inspired' garden to the next level of sophisticated glamour.

So what brings Glamour to any space...1. cohesive finishes which collaborate and belong together 2. thougtful and deliberate arrangements 3. well executed colour scheme 4. restrained accessorizing 5. quality materials and more.....

We began the planning process a few weeks ago with a visit to the participating home...with some challenges thrown our way..we completed the task and are very happy with the result. Without the suppliers who participated in the efforts, this project would not be possible.

I'd like to thank these suppliers for their support and gracious efforts to put this event together.

Casualife , Crate and Barrel, Springbank Greenhouses, and my assistant Alyssa Jacoby who is always dependable and ready for a challenge.

Part of the proceeds for the home at 659 Meadow wood rd will go to the Childrens Make a Wish Foundation.

Below is the flyer with all the information you need to participate in the Tour....I'll be there tomorrow 10 - 3 lounging and enjoying the outdoors....

Setting up is never glamorous, but the reward is priceless...
