In the graphic-looking garden, a concrete raised bed and batten walls are painted black as a backdrop to the glossy green plants. The geometric concrete floor tiles were swapped with a friend. Try Mosaic del Sur for similar. The sculptural Spun chair is by Thomas Heatherwick for Magis, and a pair of black Tolix chairs from Made sit beside a concrete planter from Habitat, now discontinued.
A wealth of design tricks makes this small garden feel bigger. The horizontal lines of the red cedar screen make it appear wider and a limited palette of colours, plants and textures ensures the space doesn't feel cluttered. The stainless-steel water feature acts as a huge mirror, making the garden feel larger still.
