Modern Country Gardens: A Cotswold Gem

Aaaah, welcome to another New Year!!
January is always a time for me to stop and reassess and see where I want to be focusing my energies in the coming year.

When we moved into our new home, we inherited the world's worst garden: full of concrete, battered sheds and ugly raised beds. It was enough to make me feel as though my world had come to a standstill.

Since then, we've been doing a huge amount of work behind the scenes and we're making progress, albeit slowly. What I need, in this January time of reflecting,  is a lovely bit of inspiration to remind me about where I want to be heading....

And I'd say this gorgeous Modern Country Garden just about fits the bill...

Nestled in the Cotswolds, not a million miles from where we live, this beautiful space is jam-packed full of beautiful roses...

...wherever you look! 
It's perfected the look of gentle chaos but, if you know anything about gardening, then you'll realise that it takes a LOT of work to appear this relaxed!

Gorgeous places to sit and enjoy the view are tucked away in every nook...

So, what shall we take away from this stunning garden? I love the carefully curated colour scheme: all soft pinks and purples and mid-greens.

And it'll come as no surprise that I'm a massive fan of this formal informality. A perfect mix of tumbling Country exuberance, restrained by its Modern framework....

And now to crack on with my very own Modern Country Garden in the making!

I love that kind of country garden. It's what I've been attempting on our small property but never quite achieve!!
