To give a bare back garden a focal point, create an outdoor lounge area with basic gravel. A simple white sunsail over head pulls everything together. A painted tree stump in a white lacquer creates a unique textural table. >> pretty space for summer!
I like a fireplace located high on a wall. it can be appreciated from more vantage points around the room and from other rooms. This is a really good idea for a fireplace in a dining room where it still can be seen after people have been seated.
