Louise’s super-sweet bachy garden
22 Nov 2018
Landscape designer Louise Dunning of Noble Fox took one space from the garden we featured in the latest Habitat magazine and gave us an alternative look.
Says Louise: “This property reminded me of a contemporary version of a traditional bach, so I have used colour and materials to create a relaxed, holiday aesthetic, reminiscent of 1950s or modernist style. I have added a new paved courtyard off the deck with seating and an umbrella for extra colour and shade, and a low timber wall, painted in Resene Shabby Chic, to define the space and create an accent. This will also work as secondary seating. Continuing the light, open feel, the house weatherboards are in Resene White Pointer, trimmed with Resene Rice Cake and a pop of Resene Just Dance on the door. It would be simple to change the colours of the low wall and door to update the look in the future. Resene Woodsman Whitewash brings the deck back to life; this product is an easy way to give the designer touch to timber fences, decks and furniture.”
Products used in the scheme include Caico Outdoor Cushions from Freedom Furniture, a Roulette Vaso Pot in Fosetta Texture in colour Rose Quartz from Morris & James and a Splice Umbrella from Basil Bangs.
Planting includes heuchera, cannas, dichondra, cycads, nikau and hibiscus.
