Garden tales

The weather is warming in the Southern Hemisphere and a design blogger girl's mind turns to gardening. I love overgrown, leafy spaces with a space for entertaining, a spot to read the paper, sip tea, perhaps a vege garden, some fruit trees, fabulous colour. Nothing too formal. Something just a little different but always with lovely, large leaves and vigorous, vibrant vines. I've always been a fan of Australian garden designer Rick Eckersley. Rick and partners Scott Leung and Myles Broad of Eckersley Garden Architecture must have read my mind. How perfect are both of these gardens!

So simple

I really REALLY love this simple rod attached to a wall displaying clothing (or a collection of scarves, blankets, art clipped on pant hangers...)

ara Design Studio

Sarah Davison of Australian interior design firm ara Design Studio is one talented lady. Her rooms are timeless, classy, unpretentious and just really gorgeous. I'm a fan, and totally crushing on the space above. (Jo also noted the talent of this firm way back here).

Making a b-id for perfection

Bad pun I know but I can't help it. Every time Julia Edelmann from Buckingham Interiors + Design sends me pictures of her showroom I go weak at the knees. Each time it is a perfection of eclectic pieces combined in a way that only Julia and her team can do. Last time she sent me pics of its previous incarnation I thought it couldn't get any better. I wanted to move in straight away. But now I know it always gets better. I'll still move in and happily wait for Julia's seasonal changes!

Backyard inspiration

This, my friends, is EXACTLY what I want to do in my backyard once the new house is complete. Maybe not the bamboo because I'm not sure that can grow in the climate up here in good 'ol Canada but whatever, I can stick all sorts of grasses around the perimeter (and the chairs blend too much with the concrete). I'd have to include a concrete box filled with cat grass though for my herd because they insist on eating it (and then barfing everywhere). I hate grass in general so this is my ideal yard. Modern and LOW MAINTENANCE.
