Landscape Design meets Interior Design.........
One of the advantages of being an Interior Designer is you get to meet interesting people. Some you continue to work with and learn from, others just leave a little imprint on your life and move on.
I do become very close to some of my suppliers and work colleagues as we spend a lot of time together. We rely on each other to ensure our projects come together - you become like extended family to each other.
One of my extended family members is the wonderful Adam Robinson from Adam Robinson Design. Adam is an award-winning landscape Horticulturist, Stylist & Landscape Designer. He is also a gorgeous guy and working with him is very easy and always fun.
When it comes to Interior Design and Landscape Design, it is important that we collaborate to ensure the interior works with the exterior. Adam and I like to ensure all the colours and materials used inside and out, are tonal and work together. We discuss design, materials, plants, pots, flowers and fabrics just to ensure we are on the same page which is important. The entire home must flow............
Adam says when working on the landscape of a home you should - “always make sure you use items that feel like they should be outside, textured like it has a sense of earth”.
Adam has a great studio in Waterloo (Sydney) where you can see some of the plants and pots he uses in his projects on display. I highly recommend if you are in the area pop in.
Plants that are trending at the moment .........
Indoor: Fiddle Leaf Fig – this is a hardy species, the sister plant which is also popular is Ficus Maclellandii. Looks beautiful in most homes.
Outdoor: Zoysia tenuifolia. Commonly known as Korean Clumping Grass. This is a great filler in the garden.
So...... as you can see I am very blessed to have Adam as part of my working life. He helps make my projects look beautiful on the outside while I focus on the inside.
