With summer fast approaching, we are all starting to use our outdoor living areas more and more: whether for sun bathing, garden parties, barbecuing or just simply relaxing; an attractive terrace, balcony, veranda or garden can make all the difference at this time of year.
To celebrate the fact that we can once again use the garden without fear, our concept of the week, this week, focuses on beautiful outdoor living spaces; so if you have one that you would like to jazz-up, then pay attention! We've made a selection of some of our best looking outdoor living areas for you to gain some inspiration from. Enjoy!
This is a scene to behold- you would be hard pushed to find a better cityscape view in many places of an evening. It goes, then, without saying that a view like this will pave way for the basis of an excellent outdoor living area: spacious and airy, open and filled with the far off ambient sounds of the city; an easy place to watch the day pass by or to entertain friends. I Think it's fair to say that anyone you bring to a space like this in your home will be impressed; to say the least. Design by Leicht
