This week we show you 3 small outdoor areas which use simple design elements to turn the space into something really unique proving often, less is more.
No matter how small a space when designing a house, consider incorporating a design element to link the inside with the out. In this example the designer has used an oversized window with an outlook to a small outdoor area planted with large cactus plants. Such a simple idea, yet it looks so effective. The sculptural qualities of these plants create a living piece of art which can be admired from the indoors or out.

If your flooring and walling elements outside are neutral or somewhat bland, you can introduce some striking design elements to lift the space. This outdoor area does just that. A retro wireframe chair has been used as a sculptural piece. It is anchored in its surrounds by a single pot, planted with green grass. Who would have thought grass alone could look so design chic!

Continuing the indoor / outdoor link, why not create impact in your hallway or front entrance by inviting the outside in. Normally large scale pots and plants would be left for the outdoors. Introducing a large scale pot into an interior environment makes not only a unique “pot plant” but a great focal point to admire.
