Before & After: A New Hangout for this Rural Backyard

dreamstateinspbefore

I really enjoy reading stories about people who take huge leaps when buying a home and this is a great example. Kristina and her boyfriend lived in busy Portland, Oregon when they decided they were due for a change. After searching high and low for almost 2 years, they finally found a gem of a house in the beautiful rural countryside.

The couple saw potential in their new yard and knew that it was perfect for a tiny campsite. They got to work right away…branches were chosen for the tipi and a small guest house was built and painted. They tidied up the fire pit area and split lots of wood for fires. Of course, there were a lot of other things they did in order to bring the yard to life, although Kristina says that they still have a lot of work to do. But for now, I think things are looking great! Nice job Kristina!

Garden Gallery : A Classic Southern Garden

Garden Gallery : A Classic Southern Garden

I love noticing the details the give a place the personality it deserves.   For me, a classic southern garden (such as this)  has a few things, wrought iron railings and accessories, beautiful red brick, an organized somewhat formal layout and those fantastic light fixtures — gaslight if possible, but lantern shaped at least. images from traditional…

Before & After: Landscape Staging

Evolutions, Petra Bindel & Swedish Light

I had few revelations over the weekend. Not the least of which was that I need to settle down and get back to a sense of routine and normalcy. The summer (with kids out of school, travel, lots of distractions and outside projects, and heat) has this way of upending everything. Add to that a…
