Pink

There is little exaggeration in historian Richard Snow’s statement that the Sleeping Beauty Castle has become a sight “as familiar to the world as the Eiffel Tower.” The turrets were painted in pastel shades of pink applied in subtle gradations to help create the illusion of the building as standing taller than its actual height of seventy-seven feet.

Protecting Our Ancient Coast Live Oak

The Huntington's Chinese Garden was completed in 2020. And although not modeled on any specific garden it follows centuries-old guidelines from Suzhou, China. Part of those traditions include preserving what's already on a chosen site. It's as important as creating new landscapes, compositions, and views. Accordingly, our Chinese Garden is distinctive for its old Coast Live Oaks native to California.
