A Trip To The Getty Villa

The Getty Villa has always been a source of inspiration to us and now that many of the COVID restrictions have been lifted, we quickly seized the opportunity to renew our acquaintance and made a reservation. Today, we finally had our change to take a break from work and make a leisurely visit, free of directional arrows and the like.

View from the central garden/courtyard. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

One of the most attractive aspects about the Getty Villa are the gardens where one can see a wide variety of color in an incredible setting.

One view of the central garden.

The central peristylium. We got there early enough where there weren’t too many people about.

The architecture is fascinating and especially how sculpture is blended in with the plantings and the buildings.

Just one view of the front garden.

This is just one example of the amazing colors to be seen. The best of the gardens is the herb garden but unfortunately, that’s closed for renovation. The natural world has always been an inspiration to us and we strive to incorporate it into our designs through various fabrics and colors arranged in a multitude of ways. We definitely have plans to return in the near future. 🙂
