Designing a curvy lawn

Hi all, I'm obsessing over my curvy lawn plan. It'll be surrounded by a border of mostly flowers. Taking inspiration from one of the inserted pics. Are there any hard and fast design rules to for this sort of thing? The first pic is my actual garden and the last is my rough plan.
The technique of using a garden hose and viewing it from an upstairs window is sound. My inclination in a garden of this size would be to keep curves to a minimum. As it stands at present the bulk of your lawn could end up looking more like a wide grass path. I would take out both of the indentations on the right hand side and have a broader end to the lawn running it more to the right of the tree in front of the shed.
Hi, yes it's perfectly to scale, and while I don't have the exact measurements at hand you're very close with that estimate.
Yes, I've tried the hosepipe thing in the past and I think the trick is to use a nice floppy one, maybe even coupled with spray.
Great suggestions, guys. Taking it all on board as I'm a total newb at this. I'll post my up-to-date plan when it's ready.
