Puglia – 2016
Our outdoor space is TINY (never trust real-estate agent pictures!).
I wouldn’t even call it a garden, it is more of a courtyard. As you can see below, it was very bare and red bricks ‘overdose’ when we moved in.
It is also in the shade most of the day, so I didn’t want to aim for a garden and end up with a plant cemetery. I therefore tried to create a space reflecting our indoor space, some sort of outdoor dining-room.
But before the big reveal, as usual, find below the images I used as inspiration to create a modern courtyard!
