The great South African weather encourages homeowners to extend their living area to the outdoors. 

Ways to create an outdoor living area

  1. Have your interior living room flow into the outdoors using large cantilever doors that opens up onto the deck.
  2. Use flooring that compliments or matches the indoors that creates a natural extension of space.
  3. Use furniture and accessories that match or compliments your indoors.
  4. Create a mediterranean feel with climbing vines and exposed beams giving an enchanting setting for an outdoor area.
  5. Use vintage textiles scattered on an outdoor daybed to create a relaxing, tranquil space to enjoy Autumn.
  6. Bright coloured scatter cushions like pinks, and greens add a great contrast to white outdoor furnishings.
  7. Create a pit fire place as a gathering point for weekend evenings sipping on wine and chatting with friends.

Create a space which is relaxing and takes the edge off the week without having to dash to the mountains every weekend.  Imagine sinking into your comfortable couch on a Saturday afternoon with your favourite sundowner.  The atmosphere is peaceful, you kick your shoes off with a sigh. This is your back garden which you converted into your private sanctuary. Life is great!
