    Dear Rita

    SO, so happy to have found your website – having ‘met’ you originally via the New York Times.

    I’m based in London and, after 25 years in a Georgian house (built in 1846 so really it’s Victorian but early enough to be gorgeously Georgian in tone and style), I’m now poised to move to something a little more bijou.

    I’m sure next year will bring many new interior opportunities once I’ve found my new home and your website will be a source of invaluable info and inspiration.

    All b/w

    Hi Rita!
    I love your sense of style and how you combine colors to make an inviting, peaceful and graceful environment!
    I would love to plant some flowers in my back yard and create an oasis.
    Could you suggest any books or authors I could read to gain a deeper understanding of how to plant a garden, how to combine different flowers to make a more pleasing end result?

    I live in Montreal, Canada.

    Thank you so much!
