A STYLIST CALLS
Super Stylist Jackie breathes colour and vitality into a neglected outdoor space in beachy Bronte, Sydney.
Spending just over $1000 on furniture and accessories, Super Stylist Jackie transforms a drab, neglected pool area.
MARY AND BEN WESTALL loved using their pool area in the summer months with their two children Emily, 16, and Tom, 14. However, due to its small size and encroaching balcony posts, Mary found it a difficult space to work with. “It was bland, lacking in greenery and dominated by the existing table and chairs,” Mary says. So the couple were keen to add some much-needed colour and life.
Super Stylist Jackie stepped in and replaced the table, added some lush plants and introduced a firepit for cooler evenings. “We’re really happy with the results and are looking forward to utilising the space during the mild autumn days and evenings,” Mary says. “My favourite additions are the chairs and fire pit – a great spot to relax with a book – and we particularly love the warmth of the table.”
“We love spending time down here as a family – often having our breakfast or dinner by the pool in summer.”
