Pavilion San Rafael
watercolor by Bernd Dams & Andrew Zega
photograph by Julius Shulman
Just one regret from my LA story- not visiting a garden pavilion, & not just any garden pavilion, but this heavenly one.
this one owned by a friend of this blog.
In the 1931 book Gardens in America, author Marion Cran called it a "temple of amour." The temple
was born in 1926 -the creation of Raymond Gould West Coast decorator & antique dealer.
This weekend readers on the West Coast near Pasadena can step into this temple of amour at the current owner's invitation through The Garden Conservancy. The event is always anticipated & this year six gardens will be open to benefit the Conservancy on the 29th.
Invaluable to conserving historic gardens in America, The Garden Conservancy is dedicated to raising awareness & restoring the beauty of gardens that might otherwise be lost.
both the watercolor of Pavilion San Rafael by Bernd Dams & Andrew Zega of ARCHITECTURALWATERCOLORS as well as the photograph by Julius Shulman were provided by the owner.
