Vackra Trädgårdar – BEAUTIFUL GARDENS from Around the World

As springtime approaches, I am anticipating making my garden and patio an inviting and beautiful haven for myself and my family. I’ve found some lovely gardens that do just that.

From what possessed me, I found this divine little patio garden (above) with a striking orange door and pink wrought iron patio set.

Roomzaar.com features this quaint yellow and blue courtyard (above). I love the simplicity of using two color tones. The Mediterranean ethos is both relaxing and warm. The stucco wall and terracotta pots (below) exude that same feel.

Terracotta planters containing herbs or colorful perrenials are an easy way to get a Tuscan feel.

The Italian-inspired painted urns and the Madrid- inspired painted planters (below) can really give your garden a old-world European flair. From Frontgate.

Bold blues and whites combined with earthy pots and urns (below) exude a Greek Island feel. The contrast of colors with natural elements emanates a sun-loving look inspired by the Mediterranean Sea.

Greek amphoras by themselves or used as planters (below from Atelier de Campagne) are beautiful accent pieces.

Natural whites, grain sack and burlap textiles and simple aluminum chairs are elements that radiate a french elegance (below).

I love how Atelier de Campagne (below) incorporates an antique buffet and metal bin into patio décor pieces.

I adore the ruffled burlap tablecloth from French Country Cottage (below). Combined with simple aluminum chairs and white-washed candlesticks it makes for an elegant jardin de Provence.

Adding a creative flair by upcycling tin cans, deco-en-nuances.eklablog.com (above) gives a modern twist to an otherwise traditional french country feel.

Salvaged garden items, wooden crates, railroad lanterns and tin watering cans help to create an old-world European look.

Swedish garden décor involves a very relaxed and casual approach. I love the simple and easy-feeling of white wicker chairs and table linens from Skonahem (below).

Isas Trädgård (above and below) features lovely and enchanting gardens that include an eclectic collection of tools, shed accessories and salvaged materials. I adore the relaxed approach that gives off the feeling of a typical gardener’s backyard.

Vibrant colors, tile-inspired patterned pillows and rugs along with lanterns featuring intricately cut designs reflect the Moroccan style of decorating (below).

You can create a relaxing retreat pretty much anywhere. I love the patio garden below (from www.moroccolondon.co.uk) which sits in the heart of London. The patchwork of tiles and the multi-colored palette is Moroccan inspired.

Comfy decorative pillows and cushions are a signature of the Moroccan style and easy to replicate in your own garden oasis.

The boldly colored Moroccan tile-inspired planters below from Bright Bold & Beautiful add a uniquely ethnic design element.

I love these Moroccan style lanterns (below) from My Craftwork. By inserting mirrors alongside the steps, the glowing effect is made more dramatic.

Inserting candles into baskets is another cute idea.

Here is my own soon-to-be spring patio (below). Despite the winter-like backdrop, the day’s temperature was 60 degrees and sunny. I threw together a simple tablescape to enjoy some wine with visiting friends.
