Over the years Stone Glidden has worked to make hundreds of Outdoor Spaces come alive. Cool serenity washes over client’s faces when they see how the pieces come together to create a timeless experience. A place you can get lost in, right outside your door.
The spaces that really seem to work are those that start with thoughtful landscape design. Great craftsmanship infused with surrounding nature (see our blog: The Donald Pell Experience).
Any outdoor space can be brought alive with some thought and expertise. Think about the things that you would enjoy doing in your outdoor space: relaxing, entertaining, dining, sleeping, thinking, reading, exercising, meditating, unwinding after work. Two things can accelerate all of those experiences, sight and sound. Music can facilitate every single one of those activities.

Periodically when we partner on a project with a builder, designer or an architect we are compelled to take a step back and admire their craftsmanship. This is very much true when speaking about Landscape Architects at Donald Pell Gardens. The work they do is best described as inspired.
Sweeping landscapes, inventive use of natural color, texture and eye-catching variety. It starts with Don Pell himself. In our experience, we have not encountered another Landscape Architect who knows more about how perennials and trees will work and flourish in a given space. He creates bold, romantic gardens that utilize an exceptionally wide palette of plants from around the world.

Today’s choices in window shades are anything but beige!
Stone Glidden has been touting the benefits of automated window shades for years but the bottom line: they’re an elegant choice in window treatment and offer a variety of unique shading solutions across your home. For one, they save energy. They filter glaring sunlight, adding comfort while protecting your furniture from fading. They can also be programmed to simulate that your home is occupied, acting as a deterrent for would-be burglars. And the list goes on…and on. But, as extensive as their features and attributes, are their exquisite array of color and fabric choices!
We work alongside many Interior Designers. But when it comes to understanding Smart Window Shades and what they bring to the design party, Kat Robbins Interiors really stands out. Kat works hard to integrate both Function and Beauty. Which at the end of the day homeowners really appreciate. In fact, understanding not only aesthetics but how a particular design element can work in a space often has long term benefits inside your home.
