Friday Photo: Eco Friendly Planter!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We were both delighted when we spotted this planter in the inner courtyard of the Palazzo Antinori. What clever way to use the logs as a planter!  It would be easy enough to make!

 

Palazzo Antinori is a Renaissance palace located at the north end of Via de' Tornabuoni. It is owned by the Antinori family who are winemakers both in Italy and in Antica Winery the Napa Valley. 

 

Wishing everyone a delightful Friday and a great weekend!

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

I like that planter. . .I like it a lot!  And, I love the red cart behind it with the stacked bottles of Chianti!

Myrl Jeffcoat we loved it, and if I was remotely skilled with a saw I would definitely duplicate it, but I am not...I shared the Chianti cart in May, when we first went there. 

Funny enough, although we lived in Napa for 6 and half years, and we visited many wineries, I had not heard of Antica, nor did anyone recommended it to us. If we go to Napa this year, we will make a point of visiting Antica..A

Kat Palmiotti it looks like it would be easy to replicate, if someone is handy with a saw.  Neither one of us can claim that skill, LOL A

Nina Hollander we looked at the log concept when we lived in Napa...and we passed on it, although I loved the decor that was in some of  them, the high ceilings with the handcrafted woven rugs.  A

HI Ron and Alexandra Seigel - What a great idea for a planter, especially in a more rustic setting.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® You are right about a rustic setting.  This was anything but a rustic setting, but it worked really well in the atrium of this pallazzo.   A

Morning Alexandra.

I noticed you stated it would be easy to make.  I guess you've never seen me try to build much of anything.  They usually end in failure.

Alexandra, Nice way to give more of a feel of the forest with the log base and encouraging other plants to grow over the logs.

Well, if that isn't clever, Alexandra! That almost looks like an American design - something done to accent a log cabin in the mountains here. I'm going to have to share it with our friends who live in the the NC mountains - they love projects and this one would be a fun one to do outside their cabin!

Hi Ron and Alexandra,  Thanks for sharing this great picture and wonderful idea.  I could see having some planters around here like that.  Very useful.
