Memphis’ weather ebbs and flows. One day, kids are playing in sprinklers, gals are wearing sundresses and everyone is sipping iced tea. And the next, everyone is tucked away inside, cozying up with a book or a movie, looking out the window and watching rain wash over our beautiful city. Either way, Memphis remains incredible, but for those sunny “all is right in the world” days, we know the best thing to do is grab some friends and head outside. Whether in a charming screened-in porch or on a lavish patio, the best memories are often made outdoors with friends and family. So we’ve gathered some of our favorite designers to show us eight must-see outdoor living spaces that are sure to make your jaw drop
The greenery in this patio vignette is a lovely mix of smart landscape design and lush, wild beauty. This impeccable courtyard garden, complete with a tall urn chambers fountain by Fiore Stone, provides the perfect complement to the blue house. The stone benches, brick pathway and intriguing accents take this outdoor living area to the next level. If you need us, we’ll be lost in a daydream of wandering through this charming, elegant courtyard garden.

Style Blueprint posted “We’re Crushing Hard on Interior Designer Teresa Davis of Post 31 Interiors” featuring Palladio Home & Garden.
Teresa Davis’ story is more than a tale of creating beauty out of everyday ordinariness. It’s a tale of creating beauty — and purpose — out of loss. She launched her Memphis- and Denver-based interior design firm, Post 31 Interiors, after the tragic death of her husband in a plane crash in 2009. “While helping my family sift through some of the darkest moments, I overheard a family friend consoling my youngest son with these profound words: ‘Try to think not only about why your dad has left, but why you are still here. The pain is so great now, but there will be a day where this will lead you forward.’” recalls Teresa. “At that moment, I began to understand how necessary it would be for all of us to focus on what we are passionate about — and to cherish the remaining days we would have together.”
For Teresa, that passion is creating fine art and practicing interior design. Before the loss of her husband, Teresa had worked part-time in interior design while raising her family. After his death, she opened Post 31 Interiors to honor her husband’s legacy by living each day to its fullest and doing the work she feels called to do. Today, Teresa operates Post 31 from a space inside Palladio Interiors & Antiques in Memphis, TN, and from her studio in Denver, CO. Read on to learn more about her passions, her projects and her thriving fine art and design business.

For our Let’s Garden Workshop on Garden Architecturals, we focused on the trellis! A trellis is an architectural structure, usually made from an open framework or lattice of interwoven or intersecting pieces of wood, bamboo or metal that is normally made to support and display climbing plants and we have quite the selection of them at Palladio Garden.
Here’s some inspiration that led us to choose confederate jasmine, also known as star jasmine, to wrap around our trellis. Beyond the beautiful ever green foliage and white flowers that spout a popular fragrance, the jasmine is fast-growing and low maintenance. Jasmine starts out growing slow for a year and then takes off and it flowers from April – June depending on the climate.
Choosing the right size trellis
Because of the big size of the jasmine we purchased, we went with one of our larger sizes of our simple trellis designs. We chose the one on the right in this photo below.
Untangling the branches
It is MUCH easier to twist the branch around the trellis after we cut off the ties and unwrapped the branches from each other. Jasmine are resilient and bendy so don’t be afraid to use some muscles to get them untangled. Whatever plant you are using, if you are planting it after some growth this will make the next step easier. Otherwise if you start a climbing plant with new seeds make sure to guide the new growth by positioning branches in varying positions along a trellis.
Placing the trellis
Since we planted the jasmine indoors, we chose one of our gorgeous glazed pots to plant the jasmine. From there we tucked the legs of the trellis into the pot and made sure it fit just right before intertwining the branches into the trellis. You can also stick the trellis legs right into the ground outside. Jasmine is great for covering up eyesores like sheds or making a make-shift fence but you will need additional support because it will not attach to walls without something to latch on to.
Pitching branches back and forth
We rolled up our sleeves for this step! It took some maneuvering to start the branch on the inner side of the trellis so we started some branches from the outside too. We wove the branches all around in no particular pattern. Our goal was to fill up the trellis and make it look full. One branch could wrap around all four sides of the bottom and another branch could make its way up to the top only on one side. Feel free to play around with it and know that it will continue to fill out bare spots once it grows.
Water and sun
If you know Jasmine, you know it craves sun. If you have your trellis indoors, place it near a window with direct sunlight or in front of a curtain in the hot summer months for filtered sun. It can withstand drought but make sure it gets plenty of nutrients and water so it stays healthy and strong. You can cut back growth after it flowers to keep growth under control. Ta-da! You have a beautiful vine growing in your garden now.
