The art of shade

Something that caught my eye today…gorgeous metal pergolas from Parasoleil. I am fascinated with the interplay of sun and shade, and a pergola covered with a flower vine just calls me to come and stand underneath…or better, sit and spend some time there!
These images remind me of Robyn, who always brings lovely sun drenched images of gardens to us on her blog…

And, a pergola can be magical in the night too…

  1. Me recuerda en ocasiones a los entramados de las celosías de los árabes en la Alambra, o de los dibujos de la mezquita de Córdoba.

    Al final creo que las culturas no están tan lejos unas de otras y cuando tratas de llegar a lo profundo se encuentras muchas similitudes, en este caso estéticas.

  2. Thanks Melissa! [psst…i did have a happy day..so thank you! :)]

    Your are very welcome Robyn! Your blog is a blast of fresh air and nature 🙂

    Ahhh…nice Adi! 🙂

  3. Anon, I do hope you are able to find someone who does such pergola at good prices! This would look so splendid on a deck 🙂

    Thanks Sreelu 😀 …very glad you liked An Indian Summer! 🙂

  4. Stunning! I loved that last photo so much I had to pull it off and put it in my inspiration file. They are all gorgeous though!

  5. Thank you for sharing this! We desperately need some sort of awning for our deck, this would be perfect. Affording it, well that’s another story!
