A beautiful outdoor terrace


16th April 2014

I’ve been working on ideas for a holiday home in Ireland and one of the changes I am proposing is the addition of an outdoor terrace off the kitchen. The style of the interiorĀ is very light and neutral with lots of painted wood and weathered grey wood. A little bit New England and a little bit Swedish. So the outdoor space would be something like this* with simple and unfussy planting and lots of green and white. What do you think?
