The Outdoor Sanctuary!
That was like running a marrathon, three times over! Landscapping week was a big one - for all houses! You all would have seen the drama unfold over the week... please learn from this. Be nice to your neighbours & make friends not enemies!
Thanks to the biggest legend, Dave Franklin + his team our garden is an absolute sanctury! To complete a pool like the one we did, build a big deck, install an outdoor kitchen, plant a luscious garden, style it etc etc etc was HUGE but we did it in the nick of time!!
As we continue to say, indoor/outdoor living is hugely important to Josh and I. Getting outside in the fresh air with your family is bliss - so this home is carefully designed for a family with kids who want to lead a healthy, active and social lifestyle all year round.
Styling wise this week, we kept the aesthetic in line with the rest of our house. Lots of earthy & neutral tones and textures. Variations of timbers, brick & concrete layered with blues & greens to complete the natural element & our big blue pool! Nothing is too stark white or precious as a garden is somewhere you want to relax, play and enjoy! The last thing busy families need is a high maintenance garden, so our outdoor space is designed to get better as it matures overtime. As the trees grow & as people settle into the area to make lasting magical memories - this garden will flourish!
I cannot believe we won but it's truely well deserved as Dave Franklin, his amazing team + Josh and I worked out butts off to build something grand! And we did it with huge success! We are two very happy little vegemites this week!
Until next week ...
Elyse & Josh
