Classic Courtyard

All images Katherine Field & Associates

Katherine Field is a Rhode Island based Landscape Architect doing very inspirational work. The courtyard area of this Newport house offers many different areas to rest and relax, in what really is quite a small, narrow garden space.

I love the use of soft muted tones of grey & taupe in the outdoor furnishings, & then the contrast of the lush green with grey planting used to tie the theme together - very stylish.


  1. I'm in love..I want to go lounge on a chair with a book and a glass of lemonade. Beautiful!

    Lovely Mille!

    As Tanya said...I do fall in love w/ the surroundings too. Just look around.

    Hmmm...my entrance needs a make over, I might copy this inspirational design you have.

    TY & have a wonderful day!

    All the best,

  3. What a place... divine! We should have a blog get together right on that terrace.. if only we could! A-M xx

  4. I love your blog. This house is a replica, without the bay windows, of our own home. Even the insides are the same, tounge and groove panelling, chair and picture rails, the kitchen alcove and even the ceiling. I think I will head over to the site and have a closer look. I have heaps of ideas for our renos that we have left to do now...ta!


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
