Some design professionals are accommodating pets other than dogs and cats. Spring Creek Design, a design-and-build firm in Honey Brook, Penn., has designed a bunny room and pig barn. “The bunnies were given a corner bedroom with two windows, since they like light,” says Liz Smutko, the companys brand manager. The barn has two indoor stalls, housing one pig in each, and comes with mobile fenced-in areas, so the animals can be rotated through and grass and soil cleaned and repaired as needed she says. Finally, Lynch has seen many cases where chickens are coming home to roost in glamorous coops. “People are finding it a good way to teach their children about nature and show respect for animals,” she says.
But paring down isnt for everyone. Many of the 400 amateur gardeners who open their colorful, quirky, original gardens in Buffalo, N.Y.s annual Garden Walk Buffalo weekend event each July disregard the simplicity mantra. Graphic designer Jim Charlier, who participates yearly, recently co-authored the book Buffalo-Style Gardens (St. Lynns Press, 2019) with garden writer Sally Cunningham. He designed his small garden for eating and entertaining, planted a collection of climbing plants to block neighboring homes, and built a green potting shed that mimics his 1897 green Dutch Colonial-style home to hold tools. The pedigree of a garden featured on the 25-year-old tour—the largest of its type in the country—definitely helps to sell homes, Charlier says.
