So 2 years after moving into our current house, our back garden is yet to be sorted. We have not had the time or the resources to sort it out and it is becoming a bit of a nuisance really. Designing a garden is an expensive project so the funds will have to be in place for that to happen. At the moment, our garden is just an empty lawn but I wish it looked similar to the picture above, that will make my outfit pictures look so good.
Currently, I take 98% of my outfit pictures right outside my house, which isn’t ideal but I am lazy like that. I know many fashion bloggers go about scouting for the perfect location for their outfit pictures but I just can’t be bothered to go out of my way to take a picture. I understand the background matters when it comes to an outfit picture but most of time, I just find myself right outside my house, taking a picture.
Taking outfit pictures right outside my house is super awkward though. I always have passersby offer to take a picture of both of us together (myself and DH – the cameraman), and the confused look on their faces when we explain why we won’t be needing a picture together just makes it a lot more awkward. They usually don’t get it when I say I am a fashion blogger and we won’t need a picture together. So having a beautiful garden to snap some outfit pictures when I don’t feel like explaining to the whole world why my DH is taking pictures of me will be nice.
I have been busy browsing some beautiful garden design ideas and I am so inspired right now. I know exactly what I want; I want a beautiful and functional garden with a patio, filled up with flowers, with a clear design and layout.
These garden beauties below have inspired me and got my creative juices flowing:

This pool and water wall garden looks heavenly. It is a bit over the top for our middle size garden, and it will cost a small fortune to maintain but it is a beauty to behold. This will look magical at night.

This is a stylish, modern yet practical garden. The beauty is in the simplicity.

This contemporary garden is my ideal garden; beautiful and functional. It is perfect for my growing family and blog. I can see us snapping some cool outfit pictures in this garden already.
What do you think? Which design is your favourite?
love it! Great ideas for when I finally get more of a garden….currently not big enough for half the hings I want to do! xx
There is nothing like having a big garden. So much to do with it.
My only wish is that I had a garden to do something with x
Gardens are so useful.

Thank you Crystal.
Great garden inspiration pictures! Love the pool and water garden picture, has a bit of a zen appeal.
Yea that garden is so pretty.
What a lovely blog 🙂 My pick would be no 3 cause it’s simple and sleek and so easy to design and mantain without spending a fortune!! also you could be as creative as you want with colourful flowers and painted fence 😉
take care x
Your inspiration pictures are quite amazing! I really like the first two, I suffer the same tragedy: we don’t have enough money for our refined tastes. And ohh I know about the people who ask about the pictures, talking about a fashion blog with my neighbors is like speaking Chinese to them.
Lol at speaking Chinese. They just don’t get it right?
I abolutely adore this post! I actually didnt post about gardens! Maybe becuase I dont have one? If I post about gardens it would upset me haha I envy you right now! I want garden! Good luck with yours!I love the Homify pic! Such a home garden- love it!
Thank you. I can’t wait to start working on ours now. It’s been too long.
These photo make me want to start a project. I love the first design.
The first design is so cool.
