FROM THE EX­PERT

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

I OF­TEN TALK ABOUT how to place a sofa and a cou­ple of arm­chairs to en­sure that the liv­ing room is not just about the TV, but also about cre­at­ing a space that you can eas­ily en­gage with your fam­ily and guests and ac­tu­ally talk to each other. Well, the rules are ex­actly the same when it comes to our out­side en­ter­tain­ing spa­ces. A well-placed out­door sofa and some comfy arm­chairs make the per­fect space to re­lax or en­ter­tain.

It’s about cre­at­ing a ‘des­ti­na­tion’ that will draw you out­side and make you feel like spend­ing time there.
