Front Doors And Lavender Paths = YUMMY!

If there's one Modern Country look that never seems to date, never seems tired, never gets old, it's this: banks of lavender leading up to a gorgeously muted front door.

Modern Country Garden Combos: Lavender And Topiary over on Modern Country Style blog!

Try Little Greene Juniper Ash, Zoffany Sung Mauve, Fired Earth Sea Lavender, Fired Earth Gentian Violet; a beautiful Modern Country planting scheme with four clipped box hedges enclosing swathes of lavender with box balls nestled within; you can never go wrong with lavender leading up to a front door; two standard topiary trees standing as sentinels either side of a door looks da bomb

Lavender-lined paths are seen the world over but especially here in the rolling Cotswolds; stopping to sweep my hand past swathes of lavender is one of life's great pleasures.

The scene is set to perfection when combined with other greenery, whether that's a climber such as hydrangea petiolaris scaling the stone walls...

I want my walkway to be a path lined by herbs- lavender, sage, thyme, etc.

...or simply a front door flanked by two lollipop sentinels...

...or even, if you have the space, lavender plants interspersed with other topiary...

...this is one look that most definitely isn't going anywhere.

BUT, ever the realist, what if you don't have oodles of front garden space to trace out yards of lavender loveliness?? What's a girl to do if she really, really, reeeeaaalllly wants this look?

Clockwise from top: this aged brick house is set off beautifully by dusky grey paint on the doors and frames, allowing the drainpipe and rendered base to fade into the overall scheme; box topiary in a zinc planter, box balls sit perfectly alongside a whole range of different architectural styles; Colours to try alongside this look include Dulux White, Farrow and Ball Cabbage White, Farrow and Ball Calluna, Little Greene French Grey, well thought-out details inside tie your interior and exterior together with aplomb..... 

Come back next time, my sweets, and I'll let you into a few of my secrets...

Until then, take extra care of yourselves,

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email website: Https:// Https://
