Delicate porcelain flowers

Bringing the Garden Indoors

Visit the House to learn how Filoli’s builders, Agnes and William Bourn, brought the garden indoors. They connected the inside of their home to their lush garden outside through fresh floral arrangements, architecture, decor, and art. The design philosophy was continued by the House’s second owners, Lurline and Bill Roth.

New soundscapes enliven each room, rare floral-themed porcelain is on display, and each week fresh floral arrangements are cut and created by Filoli Horticulturists.
