Outbuildings with character
This outbuilding at the renowned property of Sandy and Des Kennedy, the well-known Canadian writer and broadcaster, says a lot about the Denman Island tour: it's modest but beautiful, artfully composed but natural-looking. Graced by a luscious tangle of roses, the shed provides a transition between forest and garden. The mossy, living roof is testament to the lush green environment of the coastal rainforest. Tools and accessories, instead of being cleaned away out of sight, are turned into aesthetic features with thoughtful arranging and a bold use of colour.
