Repetition is a design technique to strengthen a composition. At this residence, the architecture of the home has repeating rooflines in the gables to strengthen the French country-style. However, the home was not visible as you come down the street so we designed a ‘lantern’, a garden architectural element to introduce the architecture near the street and pull your eye into the home. The trees and daffodils in this spring arrangement strengthen and enflame the home to present in the best light with a glimpse from the road. Improving the home environment for 60 years!
