Outdoor Living in the Garden

There’s an undeniable thrill in watching a landscaping project evolve from concept to tangible design. It’s an exciting achievement that every do – it – yourselfer needs to experience, at least once. When deciding to renew a home’s outdoor area, think about how you can reuse items that may not need replacing but just require some TLC. Not only will you remain in budget, but you will add your own personal touch and make the space that more meaningful.

A backyard remains an ever changing area – a blank canvas – that rewards those who patiently tend to their garden. Naturally, after working hard to maintain a well-kept landscape, who wouldn’t want to sit back and enjoy its beauty? A well covered deck that incorporates both seating and dining creates a place to unwind and relish in the outdoors.

Bring the garden onto a porch with hanging plants or strategically placed planters. This added touch not only softens but allows a gentle flow when the eye moves from the deck to the garden. Take it a step further and add some furnishings, such as a throw mat or rug, to complete the look by bringing the indoors out.

Pattern Praise

Certain times, I will read a great little feature about a design style that truly strikes a chord with me. This month, it was Canadian House and Home’s Pattern Play article on Vancouver designer Lael O’Brien.  Flipping through the pages, I was ecstatic to see such vibrant colours cladding the glossy white pages.  If you haven’t purchased the new House and Home issue, I highly recommend heading to the store to pick it up. Lael’s fresh style creates an infectious desire to renew the look of any space using patterned wallpaper, large floral prints and colourful pops that energize a room. Also the herringbone backdrop in the fireplace was a geometric look that made me light up with happiness – it’s the subtle touches that make the biggest impact! The shag rug brings texture to their living space and I couldn’t help but swoon over the kid’s rooms.
