Garden Design Details – Black Slats

garden hut black slats patio cover from torvan via www.pithandvigor.comI am desperately trying to finish off some projects that have been carrying on for too long.  One of which is the pergola over the cobblestone patio that I laid last fall.  I have just finished putting the polymeric sand between the stones and now I need to turn my attention to the pergola that will go over the top.

I have been hashing through the design details in my head for months and I have finally settled upon a style.  Black Slats.

The house is currently very dark brown, but I am slowing getting it stained black (season by season, side by side….who says you have to paint your house all at once?)  so going black makes sense to tie everything together.

Open slats are modern but have a cottage appeal — which I think will strike a perfect balance for my quirky  1940’s house…plus they leave plenty of room to go a little glam….which I am dreaming of in my garden.

It has me thinking that maybe I need to go all black….I love the black pots (which I already have some of) and all the black accents.  This green/black color scheme works so well in Danish and Scandinavian light…I wonder if it will work in New England light?

Traffic Stopping Kale

Traffic Stopping Kale

From this title, “Traffic Stopping Kale,” you may be imagining a major traffic incident in Los Angeles or Santa Barbara where a truck loaded with kale turned over on the interstate. Then tons of drivers hit their brakes and start grazing right off of the roadway. No, that is not what I am implying at…

Vote for Studio ‘g’ at Circle of Moms? – & Some Fence Art

So I have a favor to ask….I was nominated for a list of the Top 25 Home Design Moms and I need some votes.  Have I mentioned recently that I am mom? 😉 The thing about these things are that they kinda matter (perhaps more than they should) to us bloggers.  When you are sitting…
