In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I share some four-leaf clovers, a bit of green, and even a pot of gold . . .

"The foyer steals the show inside. The trelliswork, mirror frame, and demilune table were designed by Philippe Le Manach of Accents of France and painted in Benjamin Moore's Spring Break. Ordinary terra-cotta floor tiles were painted in Decorators White and Bath Salts, both by Benjamin Moore."

"Even the property's service area, with a utility barn inspired by a 19th-century carriage house, is picturesque. 'I think about a garden exactly the way I think about a house. The biggest mistake people make is not connecting the house to the garden. You have to enter it; create ways to move through it; think about a color palette that appeals to you; and design outdoor rooms that will reflect your lifestyle, whether that means a vegetable garden, flower beds, or pots of annuals.' ” - Bunny Williams.

" 'Everything was done to give the house some height because the homes on either side loom over it,' says [architect] Jeremy [Corkern]. 'We tried to pick it up a bit.' [Architect] Paul [Bates] and Jeremy created an oversize but not imposing 9-foot-tall limestone entryway. Light spills into the foyer through the 7-foot French doors and leaded-glass transom. A pair of Palladian-style shutters adds a single punch of color (Pratt and Lambert's Artichoke). A bell-shaped front lawn furthers the illusion of more height."

"Architects Paul Bates and Jeremy Corkem of Bates Corkern Studio . . . updated the rear garage with punchy green-and-white stripes that mimic an awning. They also installed a more rustic cedar-shake roof on the structure, because 'outbuildings should always have lesser roofs than the main house,' says Jeremy."

"I love the works of the French company Astier de Villatte. I use their work a lot in my house on the Cape. They hand make their ceramic works in Paris, their glassware is blown in France and their flatware is from Italy. We have been collaborating this last year with me putting my images on their plates." - John Derian

 Park of Monsters Ogre, Bomarzo, Italy
"In the late 1500s, Italian duke Pier Francesco Orsini was so heartbroken by the death of his wife, Giulia Farnese, that he commissioned architect Pirro Ligorio and sculptor Simone Moschino to create a fantastical outdoor world to ease his pain. In addition to this child-eating ogre (also referred to as an orc or orcus), the garden’s labyrinthine paths lead visitors to dragons, a three-headed hound, bears, and Hercules."
