Our own house. The Courtyard - Work in progress (I)

Here is the courtyard in our own house, the way it looks at the moment - as a work in progress.

The entry hall opens directly into the courtyard  and the sequence of spaces continues with the dining area, and further with the terrace.

The courtyard is located central on the first level, and it has French doors on all its four sides that open to four different spaces, offering an outdoor view:
- from the entry hall, 
- from the master bedroom, 
- from the tea-room / library,
- from the dining area.   

The space will continue to evolve ... so follow my future posts.

 I flanked the entry hall with two palms in tall planters identical to the planters I used outside - to create continuity that draw the eyes to the outdoor.

The view is from the entry hall.

I chose sheep skins for the back of the chairs to bring variety in texture, plus they also feel so soft and comfortable.

I chose tall planters to lift the eyes upward to the beauty of the sky, and I chose tin planters to add a new texture.

Temporary,  from garden stones I created four different arrangements that surround the planters in each corner of the 
courtyard.

courtyard, located central, opens with French doors to the tea-room / library on the left, to the entry hall in front, to the master bedroom on the right.
The view is from the dining area towards the entry hall.

I would like:
- to paint and stencil the concrete floor with an interesting pattern, geometric perhaps;
- to have an outdoor fountain - I love the soothing sound of running water;
- to install corner trellises to give dimensions to the walls;
...

The space will continue to evolve ... so follow my future posts.
