…decorate the exterior of your house – all year long?
A creative landscaping job on the side of a home can make a world of difference, yes? Imagine walking by this house on a daily stroll; peering up to be welcomed by a cheerful sign that all we need in this world is love, love, love.
Even better? The possibilities of decorating with moss, greenery and shrubs are endless. Have a favorite shape, or perhaps some fun typography? Go to town! The more personalized, the better.
And here I thought unexpected decor was relegated to interiors. Happy landscaping!

The approach. It’s an important design element, at once both a landscaping and architecture. The driveway and walkway are often under utilized design opportunities. Many times an impervious field of blacktop or concrete, creating runoff directed through drainage systems into ponds and streams.
I’ve written before of my admiration for Scandinavian design with its form, function, clean lines and minimalist tendencies. Yet it wasn’t until I saw these photos from Hus & Hem that I realized a prime element missing from the story: nature.
In this Swedish retreat, all the usual suspects are present. Black, white, pattern and function – but with a twist: fresh, green elements plucked straight from nature’s bounty. And although the home furnishings are a breath of fresh air, every piece takes a back stage to the true star of the show: lush scenery.
