    Hi. We didn't install the bench - the homeowner already had it on her property. It's charming, isn't it?

    Hostas in the back right corner (with the purple flowers at the top). Not sure if that's what you are going for. On the swing is a Clematis. The ye
    llow to the side is probably a daisy or Tickseed,

Style Secret: Outdoor ConnectionThanks to their natural overtones, rustic rooms often feel like an extension of the outdoors. Draw parallels between exterior and interior spaces — for example, the asymmetrical log swing shown here would be a natural extension of a lodge-style space. Screened and covered porches also help to blur the boundaries between outdoors and in.Inspired addition: Don’t forget about landscaping. A prim, manicured garden would feel uncomfortably rigid with this style. Keep plantings loose and lush, as if unplanned and rooted by happenstance. Or go one step further and let nature take over — it has a pretty good eye for detail.More ‘So Your Style Is’: Traditional | Contemporary | Transitional | Cottage | Eclectic | Industrial | CoastalArts and Crafts | Hollywood RegencyMore:Guest Picks: 20 Ways to Add Farmhouse Style
