We probably won’t start anything else on the exterior (see our lovely new porch, here!) until we’ve recovered from the past insanely hectic, stressful four months. That said, we definitely have a vision for out there and I thought I would share some of it. Remember Thomas O’Brien’s Long Island home from Domino years ago? We absolutely love it. The light gray siding and white trim are so classic together, and we love, love the hardscaping. The gravel paths and stone patios are just what we’ve had in mind for the Lyndale house.
The landscaping is also right up our alley. Ever since I laid eyes on the Lyndale house, I’ve been dreaming of a garden border just like this for the backyard. So lush, colorful and layered. It’s the perfect contrast to the soft, rolling green lawn. I have so many native varieties that would be perfect in our border. I’m really looking forward to mapping and drafting everything out. It was one of my favorite parts of re-designing the last house!
