Design Notes for Today: Garden Gates, Boardwalk Waves and a T.D.F. Headboard

Last week I had a chance to visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and I was so excited to see a series of gates by Atlanta metalcrafter Andrew T. Crawford. I had always admired (and I believe I must have shared on this blog at some point) his whimsical garden tool gate that is permanently installed at the gardens:

Right now through the end of April, you can get a big dose of Crawford’s work via the show Garden Gates at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

Another cool project catching my eye this week are the Wavedecks in Toronto. The Simcoe Wavedeck portion of the project, by West 8,  caught my eye via the Serenity in the Garden blog. The Wavedeck negotiates the space between the city of Toronto and its waterfront on Lake Ontario, landing somewhere in between. This section also serves as an amphitheater as well as a connection between diverse parts of the waterfront. Learn more here.

Finally, I’m so excited to see fabulous interior designer Rachel Reider‘s sneak peek at her new designs at The Attwater in Newport, Rhode Island. It’s a tease and I cannot wait to see with the rest of the place:

Don’t you just love what she’s done with the upholstered headboard? This is actually something you can do with your favorite fabric, and should you ever tire of your fabric choice, you can recover it. Mounting an upholstered headboard to a wall is a great way to save space in a tight bedroom.

    Wow! Nice pieces! Is the garden applicable as the main gate too?
