Inspiration: Artist: Satoshi Kawamoto, garden stylist, chalk artist

'Garden stylist'
'Chalk artist'.

Sounds utterly delightful, 
Got me "curiouser and curiouser", 
And I took a deep dive in...

Satoshi Kawamoto a botanical artist from Tokyo who conceptualizes and builds beautiful living worlds using plants, illustrations, and handwritten typography. He founded Green Fingersa lifestyle-oriented plant and design brand based in Japan.

His garden styling is far, far from neatly manicured lawns, trimmed hedges or a ton of flowering plants. 

And that's what draws me in... even though he works with potted plants, they seem to be out on their own, wild.

You see what I mean?

Are you bowled over yet? 
Here are pictures of the stores/cafes/homes he has styled.

If you too love the way his garden styling sounds, and if you ever visit NYC or Tokyo, don't miss out visiting his Green Fingers stores. I definitely won't! :-)
