A gorgeous Modern Country front garden. Behind smart cast iron railings, four bay trees stand either side of a black and white encaustic tiled path, leading to a red brick double-fronted Victorian house. Behind them are small squares of lavender, bordered by buxus hedging. More details and images on Modern Country Style blog: The Best Front Door Paint Colours: Dusky Purples
Like the rest of the house, the living room is decorated in soothing cream and stone shades, with just a hint of colour in the dress curtains. A window seat with hidden storage was added to the bay - great when extra seating is needed and for tidying away clutter. Half-height shutters keep the light flowing in, while providing privacy from passers by. Similar sofa, Sofa.com, Similar footstool, The Dormy House.
