Glorious Gardens

I am currently creating a new greeting card range and was researching garden images and came across this very pretty garden from housetohome. It just goes to show what you can do with a small plot, I love the slightly Moroccan feel with the tealy blues, but is still kept very English by the wonderful summerhouse. The contrast of textures is also really lovely and helps to break up the space.

I was also flicking through Living Etc and fell in love with this garden by fashion magazine editor Edwina Mccann. It is an inner courtyard created in the centre of her Sydney home so it slightly feels like a riad, an oasis in the middle of a modern home. Hy husband and I are house hunting at the moment and we both agreed whatever we end up buying we would really like a long built in bench like the one below. You could cover it in wonderfully bright cushions in the summer and with the foliage behind and wide french doors that lead on it, it makes it an extension of the living space. The only thing we need now is the Australian sunshine to make it work, oh well heres hoping for a barbecue summer!
