After looking over the three design plans, Bennett decides Edouard Mimieux's European villa is perfect for her. With beautiful plantings and meandering pathways, the space radiates elegance. Canvas awnings shade the two patios and the garage is converted into a food preparation space for easy party planning. The driveway is scored for a classical European feel and bordered by a new lavish flowerbed. The back area by the new garage is full of a variety of flowers and trees including magnolias, bottlebrush and orange cape honeysuckle, which will eventually cover the wall.
