On the terrace of my new Manhattan apartment, I’m finally making my greenhouse dreams come true. If you follow my #NYGardenInTheSky hashtag, you know that growing a garden of fruits and vegetables among the city’s skyscrapers is something I’ve done before. Doing it year-round, however, is uncharted territory. I took an Internet deep dive into what I’ll need to transform my space into an all-weather urban oasis in shades of peach and terracotta—below are my top picks. First comes a contrasting aqua hose, and then, a few months later, the fraise de bois.
Terracotta pots are my favorite vessels for plants because they naturally look good with everything.
A faux stone pot (it’s a sand, fiberglass, and cement blend) is lightweight enough to move around the terrace as the light changes with the seasons.
The combination of polycarbonate panels and a wind rating of 65 mph will create a safe home for my plants—and will help me grow veggies through the winter.
In my greenhouse, I’m creating a striped floor with Clé’s beloved zellige tiles. Plus terracotta is great for insulation.
I love how the woven finishing detail softens the hard angular lines.
I’ve never needed a hose reel, so I guess this means I now have a legit garden.
Aqua adds a pop of color to my monochromatic green garden.
I’m always cold, but this heated seat warms my entire body. Now I’m psyched to hang outdoors in the colder months.
Shallow baskets with handles are my go-to for gathering what I grow.
Some of my favorite Italians collaborated on this tablecloth, so if I can’t be in Italy, at least my table can look like I am.
We eat every meal outdoors, from spring to fall. These plates help me imagine I’m setting a table at a French château.
