Town & Country had a great piece in this month's magazine featuring interior designer Muriel Brandolini. The opening photo sequence of the story displayed a bamboo laced blue stone terrace that was fantastic. The garden looked intimate and private- a fun spot to read the paper or share a meal.
These little outdoor pockets are not too difficult to achieve. Last year I designed a tea room for a client using nothing more than hedge and grass. While Muriel's bamboo curtain is pretty, it is invasive and I don't recommend it at all. I'm currently working on a pocket of my own using standard fencing and ivy. The look and feel of the room can be defined in so many interesting ways. Have fun with it!
