Boho Chic Gardens



Jeffrey Bale a landscape artist from Portland Oregon, creates not only one of a kind mosaics, but gardens befitting any Boho-Chic lover.






















Free spirited, mystical and even religious at times these "Divine Sanctuaries" as Bale describes them, combine not only sustainable gardens but his elaborate stone mosaic art for which he is also know.

  1. His stone mosaic artwork is wonderful, isn't it?
    And, I do love a lush garden space, albeit a tidy one. Come see me today for the international blog post I told you about. xx's

  2. Wonderful yes, and I agree, for me I need more order and less "energy" in a design, but I also think a small "carpet" of his mosaic work in a traditional setting would work well and bring that bit of modern whimsy I feel all gardens need.

  5. Visiting by way of the divine Marsha. I'm a little familiar with Jeffrey's highly textural work. I'm on a 'green journey' at the moment so pictures 7 & 12 are my favourites.

    1. I am always on a "Green Journey" of some kind and am quite happy designing in different shades of green most times. The ultimate in sophistication for me.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  6. A pure, pure SYMPHONY, Maryanne! A symphony with several movements and sonatas! This was immediately my thought and feeling when I looked at all these stunning and beautiful pictures!
    What a wonderful post, a stunning green 'composition' of lovely gardens and patios, special and individual!

    I'm certainly inspired by you, I'm very delighted to found your blog through your comment, THANK YOU!

    Sorry for belated comment but we had some electricity cut-offs during the last few days, rural French country side! Will take my time to go through your blog to see and read more of your posts and looking very much forward to it.

    Warmest greetings from the Périgord,
    Karin
