Stella McCartney's Garden


Oooh, do I have something very gorgeous indeedy for you today.
Stella McCartney was featured in Vogue recently.

If you missed it, here are the images of Stella's incredible garden.



It's exactly what I've been small-garden-loving over the past few weeks
...but on a rather significantly larger scale!!


Remember here, when I talked about Modern Country essentials for small gardens?
We chatted about formal planting....


....including parterres...


and topiary...


and then adding to it with informal, country garden planting.


Soft, feminine and romantic...

Stella's garden is a Modern Country Garden to a tee. 


And if it's romance you're after, how's this for an anniversary present?


Yes...a whole new walled garden!!


Stella McCartney's a lucky girl...


And just when I was hoping thinking, 
"Well, the garden's nice but I bet the house is hideous", 
Vogue went and gave us this shot...


Hmmph. But at least she doesn't have her own horses, right?

Oh, wait...


;-)

Stella McCartney's utterly idyllic 
Modern Country Garden 
is a sight for sore eyes, don't you think?

Oh my, that is one gorgeous garden! I can hardly even imagine anything so lovely especially when I look at what I have going on at my house...flowers with weeds sticking out of them and mole tunnels everywhere :)

Perfect! Maybe in 30 years or so that's what I hope to achieve. I love the mix of more wild, natural areas and the more formal, built-in parts as well. Thanks for sharing this! I'm just going to go look at this post about 60 more times now.

Stephanie said...

Haha! I would give my left arm to live in her house, with a view of those gardens. So very beautiful!

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

Jeepers, love me those brick walls!

Killer formal/meadowy combo - just gorgeous.

Imagine she has a small army of gardners to keep it looking like that! xx

Shawna said...

It's beautiful, although a bit formal for my taste. I could happily be weekend visitor.

Wow! This garden is perfect and just what I imagine when I think of an English garden.

I hope that your garden is coming along as you would like. And of course that you are feeling great! I love all of the photos of you and your growing bump, you look happy and healthy.

Have a fabulous day! Elizabeth

Tina said...

What an anniversary gift!

I'm a bit envious..however..if I had this garden, I don't think I'd ever leave home! I see myself becoming a shut-in!

Thanks for sharing!

That's so funny - I literally just did a post featuring that last image of the front of Stella's house - mesmerising isn't it! It's probably the only image I can think of that I would happily place on my bedroom wall like a teenager lusting after a pop group. Sad how life catches up with you - it used to be hot, young men, and now it's fabulous garden's full of wisteria...sigh!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Wow! She has everything! An apparently wonderful husband, a nice house, a dog... and the best: sash windows and a brick alley...

Leah - The Inside Story said...

Oh, thank-you so much for sharing this beautiful garden. I love it, especially the more informal,rambling bit and the house is to die for. Have a lovely day Sarah. Leahx

Mimi said...

I absolutely love gardens with round bushes. It really gives the garden stature and it doesn't have to cost a fortune. Stella's gardens are lovely. Thanks for sharing!

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

Truly beautiful.

Heaven's Walk said...

Incredibly beautiful, Sarah. Wow. I could get lost in that garden and be perfectly happy! :)

Gwen @ Gwenny Penny said...

Wow! That is amazing. Can you even imagine having a garden like that? I wouldn't know what to do with myself :)

Ann said...

No wonder she dishes out so much beauty in her creations...
so much inspiration in that place, I bet the house is as equally gorgeous as that garden.

lizzybradbury said...

I'm far too jealous right now.....it was the horses that did it for me.....darn her success! x

Homes and Dreams said...

That is a seriously stunning garden and the house isn't bad too!!!

A lovely inspirational post - thank you!

ImSoVintage said...

Garden envy has definitely set in. I love the country garden section, and no the house is definitely not too shabby :)

Grubby Cottage said...

The gardens and that house.... WOW. She is one lucky girl indeed!

Cindy said...

I love her gardens, her house and her gorgeous horses! She is one lucky girl, she must have a rich husband, right? And they are over-rated, plain, good, hard-working husbands are wonderful, too!
Hugs, Cindy

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

One lucky lady indeed, I hope she appreciates all the beauty she is surrounded by.

Hey - thanks for featuring my garden...NOT! I wish my garden and house looks this good. I'll keep dreaming and working on it :O)

Megan said...

I find it amazing that no one else has said it. "If I had her money-I would have a garden like that too". It truly is amazing what a little money can do- hire the right people and BAM- you have a wonderful, magical place to call your own!! It is a pretty amazing place!

Little Leslie said...

Just beautiful. I loved it all. Thanks for the post.

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

Okay, that is the most gorgeous garden ever and so romantic too. You're so cute saying well she doesn't have horses, right...heehee. I guess some people do have it all ;) Hope you're feeling well. Take it easy!

Elizabeth said...
