Gardens have always been the place we go during the warmer Spring and Summer months to chill out after a long day at work and where we entertain and BBQ on the weekends.
Now our Gardens are more and more an extension of our home and the interior design styles we love, with the exterior of our homes being as important as our interior, from shabby chic, french country, rustic, contemporary and modern styling all playing there part even in the great outdoors. Some of us are even making our interiors into exterior props for a truly styled garden.
This applies not only to those with the luxury of large gardens in an age where you’re lucky to get anything more than a small square of grass but also to those who only have the retreat of a balcony after a long hard day at the office.
It’s been interesting to see of late just how creative you can be with even the smallest of garden space.
