Updated: with price and full supply lists below! Hello wonderful people! Remember this post?
Vertical gardens are popping up all over the place in magazines, online, television, and even around my local plant nurseries – especially with succulents. There are even boards dedicated to these specialty gardens on Pinterest . My obsession with looking at these artistic gardens just increases with every single one that I see. I’ve thought of just buying a garden like the one I found from Airy Obsessions that is made for me.
My husband is pretty adventurous when it comes to making things. He’ll just get an idea in his head, this plan of something he wants to create, and he’ll see if he can find a way to do it. This week he decided he wanted to make a Zip Line in our backyard for our kids!
May 8, 2012 So the gardening bug hit me pretty hard in the last week, I’ve been pruning perennials and planting annuals and tomatoes too. I also planted something I’ve never planted before and that’s two varieties of lettuce. I don’t know why I’ve never planted lettuce before, perhaps its because I usually grab greens in the summer at the farmer’s market or grocery store but this year I began an experiment to see if I could successfully manage to grow a few heads of lettuce to make my own salad. I reused one of my old half barrels (we have a bunch) that I typically grow tomatoes in but dedicated it to lettuce and herbs this year.
I showed you in an earlier post How to: DIY Faux Barn Doors how I built my barn doors. This post will tell you how not to install a barn door. Just kidding-but I felt like these doors were never going to be up. These are the parts I bought from Tractor Supply.
I am very excited to bring you first hand coverage of the world renowned Chelsea Flower Show this year in London. The show, which opened today, is as good as ever and one of my favorite new things for 2012 is the Artisan Retreats. The Royal Horticultural Society asked five of the UK's most creative and stylish people to decorate a garden retreat, and each of the results are full of inspiration. Orla Kiely put her signature mark on a shed that provides a place to sit and watch TV or read and relax. It's a vintage inspired scheme that uses her patterns everywhere, but in a way that I find completely appealing and not overwhelming. I am in love with the shade of green that she choose for the exterior and am wondering if garden buildings painted in interesting shades of green might be an emerging trend after so many years of outbuildings swathed in bright blues and other eye popping colors.

Oh, lofts. Lovely, light-filled lofts. I will always be envious of people who live in big, airy spaces like these, but after watching Grace and Amy setting up the D*S office, I now have a better understanding of how hard it can be to make huge industrial spaces feel comforting. I think Margot has done an amazing job renovating this space on a budget; the kitchen is gorgeous! Normally I would be upset to see wood flooring like this painted over, but I think the decision to add a platform creates a great separation of space, and the light reflecting off the white floor really helps to warm the interior. Great job, Margot!

Oh, the weather’s getting good, isn’t it??? I am so excited to have 75 degree days andI love seeing all things green in the garden. I actually picked my first Oregon strawberry yesterday… Not beautiful, but so yummy! Of course, my preschooler gobbled it right up, so I had to take her word for it. Nothing like giving my firstborn the first pick, right?
via House to Home I love a cute, romantic or otherwise charming garden shed! I’m not sure why I love them so much, but I just do. I have been dreaming of a little garden escape in my own backyard for quite some time. Since we have a new house without trees or much landscaping, I’m in need of ideas for camouflaging the view of our neighbors. While trees will definitely be in the plans over the next few years, I’m also thinking about a garden shed.
Natural Extension Create a seamless transition to an outdoor sitting area by paying the same attention to detail as you would when decorating indoors. Here, the variation in tile size adds interest and a subtle hint of patterning to this clean porch design, columns add architectural support and a classical vibe, and a beaded-board ceiling adds texture. Two ceiling fans circulate air and keep the space cool and refreshing. Let There Be Light
Koukkuja, rekkejä , tankoja. Niitä on vain jostain syystä kiva väsäillä. Ei tarvittu kuin viisi pitkää harjanvartta (tässä tapauksessa valmista rimaa jotka sahasin 170cm mittaisiksi kappaleiksi) ja neon pinkkiä narua, joka kuvassa näyttää perus pinkiltä.
Almost four years ago, after a long tenure of townhouse and apartment living, Adrian and Jason Tuazon-McCheyne moved into this 1930s house in Brunswick West, a suburb north of Melbourne. Moving into a larger space with a backyard was such a wonderful change for them, offering plenty of light as well as space for a garden (inspiring Adrian to try his hand at horticulture). The decor is always evolving, and while Adrian prefers not to bow to trends, he is hopeful that he is creating something timeless, allowing the space to remain light and fresh by focusing on artwork and decorating with pieces they have acquired over the years. Adrian is a photographer specializing in weddings and portraits shot mostly on film, while Jason is a civil marriage celebrant currently completing a PhD in philosophy. Thank you, Adrian and Jason! — Shannon
