Season 1, Episode 11

French Quarter Garden

Samelia and her young son Atlin live in a large inviting house with a not-so-welcoming backyard. Bugs, spiders and overgrown trees discourage guests from stepping foot outdoors and make the space feel downright scary. Samelia wants a place where her son can play worry-free while she relaxes – a kid and adult friendly garden that reflects her funky, unique style. Jamie visits New Orleans for inspiration and falls in love with everything about the city. From the history to the architecture to a plethora of European-style secret gardens, the Big Easy is a designer's dream. He is invited to a down-home southern tea party at Miss Ruthie's house where he gets an up-close look at a French manor-styled private garden. As he walks the streets, Jamie is inspired by the lines and colors of the old shutters and the lush overflowing French urns that mark the entrance of so many of the spectacular historic homes. At the Soniat House, Jamie vibes on the way traditional things are used in a contemporary way to create a feeling of sanctuary. A mix of tropical and flowering shrubs and an abundance of white crepe myrtle all make their way into Samelia's garden from New Orleans to create a relaxing outdoor lounge room with a funky, soulful style.
