A modern designer home is not complete without a garden that complements its stunning look.

Follow these basic principles of home and garden design and create the perfect balance in your personal space.

Modern yet warm

Once upon a time, designer interiors were defined by cool colour palettes and cold materials. Modern interior design trends are all about natural and durable materials such as stone tiles and wood – these not only last a lifetime, but also become more beautiful as they age. To get a warm vibe without losing that modern edge in your interiors, you could combine a sleek concrete floor with an extra-long table made of the finest wood. You could also try a louvered canopy such as Renson’s Camargue, which delivers the warm look of wood with aluminium on the patio.

Water and fire

A garden is the perfect place to relax with family or friends when you are outdoors. One thing that can make the experience more memorable is a minimalist built-in fire on your patio. Alternatively, you could have a lovely fire stove and an eye-catching water feature in the garden - both are key elements for creating that Zen feeling.

Blur the boundaries

Seamlessly connect with the beautiful outdoors by blurring the boundaries between your home inside and the garden outdoors. Choose tropical plants, use the same stone tiles inside and outside, and install a minimalist patio cover. The patio cover creates a whole new space for you to relax in your garden no matter the weather, where you can share a drink with friends, sip your morning coffee, or read a good book in the evening, while enjoying a wonderful view of your garden.
