George Herman House - Lounge Area

My vision of the lounge area at Toronto's George Herman House. It is a wonderful private area of the Healing Garden. Perfect to read, chat quietly, groom the boxwoods, tend to the herb garden wall or just hang out.

You must excuse my sorry excuse of a sketch. It looks more like chicken scratchings but I wanted to quickly show the seating layout and how I envisioned the wall of the garage.

Outdoor fabrics from Tonic Living:
- Slick in Mink
- Cool Stripe in Sorbet
- Sunny Side Coral

Paint for garage wall Benjamin Moore:
- Nightfall using Aura Exterior Edition sheen level Flat
(Herb garden & tree will appear to float!) 

Furniture from Ikea
- Ammero seating as sofas
- Ammero ottoman

BonaVista Pools:
Planika Fire Jar
