How To Design The Perfect Pergola For Your Garden

A pergola, or arbor, is a garden structure that is primarily designed to create shade. Traditional pergolas make shaded walkways, sometimes between two garden walls, or a sheltered area next, to a building. They can also serve as freestanding structures providing protection from the sun over a garden terrace. Nowadays pergolas that extend from the side of a building to a feature, such as a terrace or a swimming pool, are extremely popular.

However, pergolas function equally well away from the main building in a corner of the garden. A pergola that is hidden away, like this, can create a sense of destination and discovery in a landscape design. Wherever you choose to site your pergola, think about it as a mini room within the garden creating an external zone of the home in its own right.


Themed Rooms: Movie Night

Fun family nights filled with popcorn and movies, everyone needs a cozy, homey spot to kick back, relax and catch up with the tube. Blankets and comfortable seating are a must for creating the most perfect “movie night” room, but there are some other great ways to transform a bonus room, living room or extra bedroom into the most magical, most fun room of the house! Take a look!

1. Add some curtains to the screen.

Give your movie space that extra, magical flair by adding curtains to the TV screen. Golds and burgundies are the classic color choices. Then add some pull-back tassels, fringe and make sure the fabric is of a plush, velvety genre. When it’s time for the big premiere, slide them back to reveal your big flat screen! It’ll just be an extra way to add that bit of movie-esque appeal to the area.
