I have always been fascinated by Japanese interior and garden design. It had an otherness that attracted me, teasing my western sensibilities. How can one have a garden made up entirely of small stones or a bewildering variety of moss? Look at a Japanese garden ! So other worldly. But one other feature of Japanese design was the concept of being able to see the garden from the interior, at times a seamless transition from one to another. You can also do this with your space.
