A Room in the Garden - Escape . Eat . Entertain

"This installation uses clean lines and geometry focusing on elegant garden entertaining. It features The Hexagonal Gazebo framed in dramatic planters of Alchemilla mollis/Lady’s mantle and towering bronze Alliums. My inspiration for the strong colour palette of metallic bronzes and shades of greens - from zesty lime to mellow olive - has been the hues in the rust and the beautiful flowers of *The Walled Garden this spring and early summer. 
 
Our aim is to show that any garden, whether urban or stately can accommodate structures that enhance its space and integrity as planting can naturally grow around and through them."
 
Jan Howard – Feature Designer
 
"The Room in the Garden Design Collection in rusted iron blends seamlessly into the backdrop of any garden whether small or large. These imposing and defined rusted structures enhance planting schemes as well are rooms for elegant outdoor entertaining. They work equally well as tranquil outdoor spaces. It’s garden theatre at its best. A Room in the Garden can be enjoyed for entertaining and is a sculptural showpiece that can also be admired and enjoyed from inside the home."
