Long days, warm nights and balmy breezes.. Summer is finally here and the outdoors await. No longer solely for sun downers or a braai, contemporary outdoor spaces have become infused with all the comforts and conveniences of the indoors. So kick off your shoes, and come experience these exquisite open-air spaces…
Evocative of lush greenery and light breezes, this season’s tropical trend is set to cool your senses with a focus on nature-inspired, laid-back living. It’s the celebration of an abundance of greenery within the home. Pair plant life with natural textures, colours and botanical prints for that rain forest-like feel.
Be selective and choose furniture to inhabit your outdoor spaces that blend seamlessly with the environment. Being multi-functional is a great plus.
BARE EARTH BEAUTY
Representing a respite from our fast-paced lives, the desert trend is all about ‘controlled rusticity’ – celebrating raw versus clean. With a minimalist-inspired ethos, it has a calm, meditative quality. Combine natural stone, terracotta and pottery with earthy tones and tactile linens or suede to fashion a comfortable, informal aesthetic.
To get the most out of modest external spaces, make use of built-in seating to create a sense of enclosure and intimacy. Opt for sliding doors to bring the inside, outside.
Raw materials & elements such as light sandstone and white outdoor furniture can be used to create that clean and relaxed, summery atmosphere
