Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

When search­ing for their new home, Riza and Cameron had their hearts set on a large block with plenty of green space to soothe the senses. And they’ve made the most of it. “When we in­stalled the pool we turned the car­port into a pool house with a kitchen, bar­beque and shower,” says Riza. “It’s where we host birth­day, Christ­mas and New Year’s Eve par­ties. In the even­ing, with the pool lights on and fes­toons strung across to the mango tree, it is spec­tac­u­lar!”

Festoon light­ing in­stantly cre­ates a party at­mos­phere. GREAT IDEA A lawn set­ting is a casual space to re­lax and en­joy a drink.

Quiet space “The front deck is one of my favourite spots to have a cuppa,” Riza says.
