Gone are the days when you want your landscape to look like your neighbors, right? Our homes, inside and out, are all about expressing who we are and the kind of life we want to live.
This is why textures and colors are a must when it comes to outdoor design.
The combinations of landscape materials, such as plants, wood, metal, and stone, develop the textures of your built space.
Layer your space with furniture, that can have any amazing combination of color choices, and you’ve put the icing on the cake.
Taken as one whole visage . . . it’s an artistic masterpiece reflecting you!
You living beautifully outdoors.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been posting on social media some combinations that I find inspiring. Scroll through and see if you feel the same.
