Outdoor Design

While we do love a great interior, the outside has to have a link.  A beautiful exterior is viewed from the inside of your home or apartment and you want to look out and appreciate the link between that the two spaces.  Improving your health and well being needn’t involve hours of stretching or meditating; you can create your own harmony within your outdoor space.  

Keep you colour palette simple by using no more that three different colours and finishes.  Natural finishes look great.  You can add colour with accessories which can be easily changed if you get tired of the look.   It should look like you want to get out there and enjoy the fresh air and relax.  Minimise clutter and get your green finger on.

Create your own soul filled garden.  Think about growing some herbs, and having a space that a pet can co-exist in.  It can be a fun space, or a relaxing space but draw on some elements from your interior in the outdoor area.

Soulful gardens have a strong sense of feeling completely right and in balance. When we come upon these gardens, my first response is one of pure joy and my second is sadness knowing I have to leave.
