I am all around the world today – taking inspiration from Brazil and now Sweden. Perhaps I have a little cabin fever as I sit here in my snow bound house.
Over at Purple Area, I discovered this book Kreativa kvadrameter (translation: Creative Square Meters)….which I am not sure how to get my hands on. It is a Swedish garden design book and the images alone are enough to sell me on buying a copy.
Typically, I am still obsessed with black in the garden – or at least black on the house and what looks good around it. This black nook with white details and green ivy everywhere is precisely where I would rather be right now. (instead of in my kitchen with the blasting furnace — a futile to effort to ward off subzero temps outside)
The children’s garden ideas are also appealing to me. Do you know chidren who play like this? Mine don’t, but I think they would. I am going to head over to ebay and see what kind of treasures I might be able to score for them to use in their own garden scenes.
Let me know if you have thoughts about how to find or import this book.
