Wednesday Vignette – Lan Su at night

It’s after 10 pm, it’s dark outside, and I just got back from work. Today was hot, hot, hot, but it has finally cooled off somewhat. I didn’t really get my customary chill-out time in the garden this evening, but seeing how dark it is, made me reflect on the importance of well-placed outdoor lighting.

I don’t remember the reason I was hanging out outside the Lan Su garden an evening a few years ago, but I do remember being impressed with their lighting, so I thought I’d dig up a couple of photos from their very photogenic front court yard, and join in the Wednesday Vignette meme over on my other blog.

In the harsh light of day, the details of the stone work are easily missed.

I just love how the light falls on the sculpted granite. Isn't it lovely?

About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!
