Built in the reign of Louis XV it is also the first public garden in France.
It is a peaceful and beautiful space with a symmetrical layout, filled with fountains, balustrades, vases, and sculptures. You see fish in the pools, and on the weekends, children riding ponies and men playing boules.
I thought this beautiful garden with it's sweeping staircases and balustrades would be the perfect back drop for introducing the new MaiTai Collection Gemstone necklace,
handcrafted with semi precious stones, freshwater pearls, crystal, glass and crimp beads.
The park is so much more though than a peaceful garden for reflection or a promenade. It is such an inspirational place too... it's classical beauty and the abundance of urns and vases, all draped with bows and wreaths, led me to the new 'Jardin de Nîmes' cover for the scarf travel pochette, which will become available in about three weeks time. The design originates from the Boudin Archives in Nîmes, and like the existing Toile de Jouy and Bastide, it is one of the beautiful patterns printed by a family business in Provence.
