There are several red and white fuchsia varieties. Some are hardy and might look nice in your newly designed garden :o)

There are many blogs on here whereby members have incorporated curves and rooms into their gardens, if you browse through them I feel sure you`ll get lots of ideas, click on D at the bottom of the page and then click on Design Ideas....

There are several white lavenders on line.
White french lavender - Lavandula stoechas subsp stoechas f. leucantha 'Snowman',
Lavandula Elegance Ice (White),
Lavandula stoechas Little Bee (Cream)
and the White English lavender angustifolia 'Edelweiss'
My 'rooms' are on the diagonal after short shrubbed paths to make them appear longer/bigger than they are. One leads to a second patio one to a secret garden one to the wooded area and one to some veges, noneof which can be seen unles you go down the garden. Or you can just divide up areas with structures such as trellis, pergolas or by shrubs, even boxhedging if you dont want height.
