So here is a sneak peak of a little courtyard in Collingwood that we styled for sale. The property had been tenanted for a few years and was looking a bit tired, but the bones were good and it didn’t take much to bring it back to life. On a very tight budget we gave the fence a lick of paint in Charcoal grey, filled in the garden beds with a few more low maintenance plants (box hedge, agave) and made the trip out to Ikea for simple patio furniture and bits and pieces. We added some beautiful cushions from Xavier & Me and Aura Home for a touch of colour and rounded up as many succulent plants as we could get our hands on. The effect is simple, modern, neat and low maintenance – ideal for rentals or anyone who doesn’t want to part with too much money. Thanks to Lee Bird Photography for the beautiful photos and helping me out on the day!
