Room with a view

27 Jul

So often we forget that the garden can be such a great room for entertaining, relaxing, reflecting and many more other wonderful things.  I thought it would be nice to post some inspirational pics of gardens which have been brought ‘into the home’ and have become another room to use.

Above: These sliding doors are great for opening up completely and making the room feel like it’s part of the garden.

Above: This outdoor office is perfect for if you work at home but want some peace and quiet, and want to get out the house.  It gives you a great view-perfect for getting the creative juices going!











Above:  I love how this patio has curtains so that you can close it off to create a more intimate feeling, or if it’s getting a bit chilly.

Above:  I just wanted to put this pic in because I love the bold blue fabric with white outline.  Very classy yet striking.













Above:  This courtyard feels incredibly intimate and romantic.  The water feature makes a nice addition and really draws the courtyard in, instead of being a wide open expanse of brick it now becomes an intimate entertaining area.

Above:  This is a cute take on a surfer’s outdoor chill area.  Striking fabric and timeless chairs do go a long way in making a room look great.
















Above:  This is my favourite picture!  I just want to hop in that bath and never get out.  Bringing the shrubs inside and taking the water outside (in the pond) ties the two areas together and makes it seamless and gives the impression that while in the bath, you’re actually also outside.
