garden deck inspiration

cherryblossoms atreefor2
Do you remember a few month ago I told you I’m going to share some interior design moodboards every once in a while on atreefor2.
Today I’m going to share a moodboard for the exterior design/garden with you!
Because since we planted our new cherry tree for our balcony a few weeks ago (which is in full bloom now!) I imagine myself on our beautiful new sun deck and I really can’t think of anything else at the moment. It’s literally on my mind everyday (at least every sunny day)! I was raised on the countryside and I’m a true country gal who can’t wait to ran barefoot through the garden as soon as the first sunbeam hits the ground in spring!

So take a look at this…

I imagine myself sitting under our sunblind construction – we planned on building ourselfs. Houseshaped and made of metal and maybe wood!? Not totally sure about the sunroof yet but you can see on the skribble below how we imagine it to be (maybe a project for next year or winter to weld this construction). Anyway. This summer I’d love to take a seat next to Martin on my new dream Acapulco-style chair (1) or in the beautiful and comfy IKEA’s Högsten chair (2) wearing Andy Wolf shades (3 & 4) and clink glasses with Martin to our new sundeck! A girl can dream right?…

This post is a little off topic but as I told you we had a cute little photoshoot with our dear friend Anja the other day (Yes, I have to make advantage of Anjas skills everytime she’s helping us at the treehouse site.. not only her amazing bricklaying skills (also: here & here) but also her number one talent: Photography)
I don’t want to hold those outtakes back… they are just too hilarious not to share! Please enjoy Martin & Katharina at our best! Thank you Anja for your commitment and the beautiful outcome!

facelift – the new exterior

Martin and I were completely bowled over by the difference one day can make! The company who fixes our new facade works super-fast and super-neat and after just one working day you can see a significant difference because the largest wall was almost covered with the insulation panels.
Although I must admit I’m going to miss the beautiful brick we worked on the last couple of weeks I’m totally looking forward to less energy costs in our insulated home.

On the left a close up of the “open” styrofoam panels. (this is going to be plastered again and painted)
I’ll write a detailed post about all the facts of our new facade next week.
