…or go really wildAll-over creepers and climbers will give most exteriors the look of a romantic abandoned ruin (in a good way). It’s to do with the sense that nature has taken over. Of course, to prevent your home from being ruined by your green walls you’ll need to commit to proper maintenance of your plants, so that they only look as if they’ve taken over. Also be careful about what you plant to ensure it won’t damage your brickwork or pointing as it climbs.

Let nature help outAn ivy-covered frontage is spot-on for this grand, turreted castle, as it cloaks the building with a sense of history. A simple, white-painted door is all that’s needed here as Mother Nature’s finest provides an abundance of colour and texture. White also helps the door stand out brightly amid the leaves. Copy the look and grow climbers around your front door – try roses or an evergreen clematis for spring or summer colour as well as greenery.

Nicola and Fred share the main front door with one other wing. Their personal door is just off the great hall, which makes for a lovely welcome home each day.
