Andrea Legge, Deborah Lewis and Murray Legge of art and architecture collective Legge Lewis Legge have come up with this amazing opportunity to shape contemporary gardens. Named Fractal Garden, the project aims at constructing contemporary gardens by bringing together several diamond-shaped planters. Supported by wheels, these intriguing quadrilateral polygons expose a world of modern garden customization challenging you to express your love for geometry and nature. The 21 steel planter group consists of 7 garden diamonds that come in three different versions for a spectacular cluster of possibilities. Originally designed for the 10th anniversary of The International Garden Festival in Quebec, Canada, the planters quench your thirst for informal gardening, offering a great solution for any type of garden, even rooftop displays of greenery or garden design for small terraces. These customizable tessellated examples of the way planters shape different gardens inspire more symmetric and asymmetric combinations – how would you shape your mobile garden?
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
