A Colorado Garden: A Serene Asian-Inspired Garden

Kyoto meets Giverny in this artful garden, a sublime space for contemplation.

Japanese shoji screens traditionally are made from translucent rice paper, but the owners chose a durable, light-penetrating fabric that will prevail in harsh weather. It allows filtered light without sacrificing privacy. The floor is salvaged pine planks from a park ranger’s mountain cabin, and a round window brings in the garden even when the doors are closed.
