MHome: Greek Gardens

Guests invited to the Temperance home of Bruce and Marina Lung are in awe of the fabulous outdoor decor and plantings that surround the property. Lovingly tended by Brian Mock, the colorful blooms were just winding down for the season when we stopped by, but still looked beautiful. Every year new varieties of flowers and shrubs take their place among the gorgeous sculptures and stone veranda.

The pool and pond area also feature unique plantings reminiscent of a sweeping Southern plantation. On a summer’s day one could enjoy the splendor from dawn until dusk enjoying the splendor.

The house is an interplay of dramatic sculptures and paintings, many with a Greek and Egyptian theme. The foyer is magnificent and harkens to the movie Gone with the Wind. The color pallette is ivory with touches of taupe and sand and accents of aqua that dominate the step down living and dining areas.

The home, a place for many summer parties, and the beauty of the setting, are dazzling.
