Hang a piece for instant styleIf painting, planting and cladding really aren’t your thing, a large statement clock or wall sculpture can do wonders for a bare space. When viewed from the kitchen-diner, this large clock anchors both indoor and outdoor rooms.TELL US…Do you have a feature wall in your outdoor space?

Frame with symmetrySymmetrical elements in a room bring a sense of calm and order, and dark doors that evenly frame a scene help to give it a neat feel. Here, the view over a small courtyard garden is not wildly exciting, but the glass doors frame it beautifully, with the clock on the garden wall bang in the centre, making the whole effect more grand and elegant.
Take it outsideClocks look just as good hung outside as inside. Ideally, hang the clock on a garden wall that can be seen from indoors, so that it can be enjoyed and used whatever the weather and when garden doors are open or closed.
To help the small outside space feel like an extension of the kitchen, Emma painted the exterior walls in the same white as inside. ‘It’s not a big garden and it might have been a bit of an afterthought otherwise. Now it makes the kitchen feel bigger.’
