Living in Loveliness

Living in LovelinessBack doors open to a parterre designed by landscape architect Scott Gilchrist. An ideal spot for alfresco dining lies beneath the shelter of a pergola, and perfectly manicured boxwoods enclose gravel paths that amble through the plot. An accomplished floral arranger, Claire often clips fresh flowers and greenery to bring her garden’s botanical largesse indoors—just one more thoughtful way she makes her home an inviting haven for family and friends.
