Seeds of Design: Art nouveau garden design

Art Nouveau was an international style of art, architecture and applied art, especially of the decorative arts, that was widespread in Europe and the US between about 1890 and 1910. It was inspired by natural forms and structures, particularly those of lines of plants and flowers. This Art Nouveau garden design is based on the wonderful artisan glasses I saw at the Denmark Design Museum.

Seeds of inspiration

Typical of the style, they remind me of a series of wildflowers, the swirling metalwork mimicking the natural lines of plants to create these elegant forms.

The Art Nouveau garden

The Art Nouveau garden design sees different sizes and shapes featured in the dining area in particular, with semi-circular boundaries to accentuate the edges.  

Other influences bloom

There will be lots of greenery and specimen trees, along with planters and gravel or shingle.
