Using your outdoor space to embellish the interior design effect of your home can produce inspired results.
Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors opening onto soft carpets of green, blurring the boundaries of indoor & outdoor are themes we are all familiar with in contemporary interior and garden design. Other approaches can also produce striking results. Contemporary new homes can avail of bold symmetrical white lines, warm decking and structural planning outside to seamlessly extend the interior look to the exterior.
Contemporary planting techniques and garden design in particular give enhanced dramatic effect, perfect for modern spaces. Working in particular with mature structurally interesting plants and trees allows us to create instant architectural impact.
The old world also retains its charms, both from an interior as well as a garden design perspective. An English country cottage, however painstakingly the interior has been designed always needs a cottage garden to complete the effect:
Sticking with the rustic, en Provence, there are many examples of how the design and planting of the garden serves to enhance the essence and structure of the building itself. The old hospital garden in Arles, made famous by Van Gogh in the late 1800’s, is a case in point.
Working with a uniform style in the garden as well as the interior can produce striking results as well as a cohesive ambiance throughout the property. A rustic Provençal interior benefits from rustic Provençal planting.
And a Mediterranean style home is wonderfully balanced with Mediterranean planting in the garden. Worth a mention that there are hardy varieties of Mediterranean plants that are very well adapted to our UK Climate – such as this example below:
Whatever your preferred style, we find excellent results can be achieved by taking a combined approach to your interior and exterior space and maximising your design theme impact.
