It's warming up for our northern hemisphere readers so it's a perfect time for a little garden inspiration. Australian landscape design firm Greenart Gardens does just that. Wonderful outdoor rooms and gorgeous greenery. I don't think I'd want to come back inside with garden spaces like these.
I love the rich colour of this room by Jason Martin and don't get me started on the denim chairs. Retrolicious! Need help with your space?

I am in awe of Ken Gutmaker's photography. As a result of his perfect composition and lighting, I want to be a part of each of these spaces. I so desperately want to walk out onto that deck, and pass through the open glass walls into that backyard (I wish the climate here was conducive to that much glass), and eat at those dining tables. I think I need to stash a few of these photos for future reference.
More from Scott Weston that is.
"My other Client adores what we call 'Flavours of White' and we have for the last 2 years been busily refurbishing the family home. I have known this Client now for 15 years and it's such a joy to be able to use unusual materials that are out of the ordinary and not necessarily used in residential work. We have come to love using an ABET Laminati product called 'Stratificato' in pearlescent white and is glue fixed to solid timber battens and comes in sheet size of 1200 x 3050mm. In these bathrooms we have used the full panel width thereby reducing the visible joint sin a bathroom and to the delight of the Client minimising nasty joints that need cleaning. We also use it on the ceiling with recessed flush shower heads that requires exact precision installation by our bathroom builder who we fly out from Copenhagen every-time we do a bathroom fit-out. The Danes are true perfectionists and carefully mitre all the sheet joints thereby eliminating the nasty silicon joint that with time gets dirty. We make sure that our Client does not get her way all the time and we slip in our signature celebration of colour to internal cabinets and secret drawers to walls in ABET laminate fuscia."
And the kitchen? "The kitchen is a combination of Corian and silver mirror and as I had never used the product before was sceptical of an all white kitchen. However, it is such a hard wearing product and has a great depth to it I am using it on another project in what we call Elizabeth Taylor 'mauve'." Few words about this one from Scott but who needs them when the pictures tell it all. Gorgeous and practical!
