DESIGN ELEMENT Mirror image
WHY IT WORKS Placing a mirror in the garden has various effects,
including creating a feeling of infinity. It’s also a little mysterious and
surprising because at first it may appear to be a tranquil pond or may give
the impression an area is bigger than it really is. A mirror also helps reflect
light and can brighten up a dark corner. This mirror in a garden by CultivArt,
a finalist in the 2010 LIAWA Awards of Excellence, gives this corner allure.
It has been placed down low to reflect a bed of smooth, round river stones,
bringing a soft yin feel to an area framed by the straight yang lines of the
decking. CultivArt 0414 865 747, www.cultivart.com .au .
DESIGN ELEMENT Texture on texture
WHY IT WORKS Mix rough with smooth to add interest and
delineate zones. In this area by Exhibit Green, a finalist in the 2010
LIAWA Awards of Excellence, the blue metal’s colour and texture
complements the other three surfaces and draws the look together.
Spiky and round-leafed agaves add even more tactility and bring in
greenery. Exhibit Green (08) 9203 8100, www.exhibitgreen.com.au .
