Does this frigid weather have you dreaming of warm summer evenings and dining al fresco? If so, you won’t want to miss the Interiors by M.S. exhibit at the Boston Flower and Garden Show. Lakeville-based owner, Maria Sadek has combined her interior design talent with her interest in landscape architecture. The result? A beautiful and inviting outdoor living space that will have visitors anticipating the arrival of summer.
Her first time participating as an exhibitor at the Show, Maria submitted her plan last November and was thrilled to have been selected. The exhibit includes a vertical herb garden that provides the outdoor “chef” with an ongoing harvest of fresh herbs.
The focal point is a seating area constructed from recycled beams, timbers and boards. A pergola frames the area, and incorporates salvaged windows and a whimsical collection of stained glass.
Planning for the exhibit began months ago. Herbs were gathered during the fall and the forcing of plants began in December. Maria and her crew put in several 10-12 hour days earlier this week to ensure that all was in order for the Show’s opening. The results may just inspire you to begin planning your own outdoor space. You can visit Maria’s website at www.interiorsbyms.com.
Planning to visit? The show runs through Sunday at the Seaport World Trade Center and sources have revealed that Sunday tends to be one of the least crowded days to attend. Find out all of the details at thebostonflowershow.com and read more here from the Patriot Ledger.
