Working closely with the client they have created a wonderful space for entertaining. They have worked with mixed textures of grass and and stone and added relaxed outdoor seating around an Elevated Halo fire pit to create a welcoming space.

 

 

The Elevated Halo fire pit is ideal for this style of space as it offers the warmth of a fire along with the functionality of a table when used in conjunction with outdoor seating. With their clean profiles and soft curves the Halo Elevated fits well into a wide variety of outdoor environments. The elevated halo fire pit works in traditional and contemporary settings. The Elevated Halo is available in two sizes 36″ and 48″ and 10 different colour options. This variety makes it ideal for residential and commercial installations.

Solus Decor at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show

Solus Decor fire pit at RHS Hampton Court

Solus Decor have collaborated with the award winning garden designer Rosemary Coldstream at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show this month.  Rosemary’s Best of Both Worlds Garden won a gold award at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.

The Best of Both Worlds Garden was designed for an imaginary couple who have a small garden but differing tastes. To keep each other happy, they’ve split the garden into two equal halves. One side has a country-garden feel and a palette of blues, purple and pinks.  The other side is more contemporary with a simpler mix of green foliage and golden grasses.

About the Best of Both Worlds Garden

Rosemary Coldstream has incorporated Solus Decor’s elevated halo fire pit in the contemporary side of the garden in a sunken seating area.  The planting in the contemporary area in a more simplified palette of yellow, green, blue and hints of red.  The landscaping is linear in its design in contrast to the country style garden.

The garden was created by landscaping apprentices, trainees and students on BALI’s GoLandscape initiative which is supported by the RHS.  BALI’S GoLandscape initiative encourages young people to pursue a career in horticulture. The young designers, landscapers and contractors have been mentored by designer Rosemary Coldstream and David Dodd of The Outdoor Room as part of the Best of Both Worlds Garden project.
