Summer paradise

July 24, 2012

Finally the sun has made an appearance, so we thought what better way to celebrate than to show you some fabulous ways of combining your indoor and outdoor areas. Make the most of the summer by incorporating big expanses of glass that will let the light pour in – you’ll feel as though you’re outside whist carrying out daily chores, too…

We love the way this seasonal bright blue shade has been used both inside and out – on cushions, wallpaper and a rug – linking both areas together.

Here, folding doors open wide to let the sunshine in, with a wooden dining table echoing the timber door frames.

In this kitchen, floor-to-ceiling glass provides a picture-perfect view of the exterior.

Fling open your doors to the garden and make the outside an extension of your home.

Can i come in? Modern LA home

Got the Monday morning blues? This stunning LA home is sure to lift your spirits!

Bright open spaces give way to breath-taking views of the countryside and industrial materials collide with punchy pink fabrics. And it doesn’t end there: there are several balconies, an alfresco dining area and even an outdoor pool!

Actually, I’m not sure this is cheering me up…

Statement screen

May 5, 2009

Do blowing winds give your garden the chill factor?  I like this solution, a screen in statement fabrics not only creates a cosier eating area but also makes a stunning feature on the patio.

Beachside bathroom

August 18, 2008

I keep coming across more and more bathrooms set outside. I think the idea is great but its got to cause a few practical problems. Not sure I’d appreciate people walking by while I was in the bath!
