Before & After: Staffan and Rebecca's Garden Kitchen

Rebecca and Staffan have been hard at work building an extraordinary terraced garden in Sweden since 2007. In such a short time they have carved out six terraces and built an unimaginable series of walls to hold it all in place. And then there is this one (comparatively) small piece — an outdoor kitchen with an extraordinary view.

Here is a little bit of the progression:

And then the glorious after - if I had this kitchen I think I would want to brave the Swedish winters to cook out all year long.

Staffan and Rebecca thought of all the details — tile backsplashes, towel hooks, and the always necessary bottle opener.

The garden includes a vegetable terrace, an herb terrace, an old orchard, secluded nooks, and beautiful plants everywhere.

You can see more of their garden at their (swedish language) blog and in this post at studio 'g'.
