Leonie, QLD

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

The back deck of this worker’s cot­tage is a favourite space for Leonie. “It’s where I live most of the time,” she says. Sur­rounded by trees and fur­nished with a mix of vin­tage cane fur­ni­ture, it’s a great en­ter­tain­ing space and, when the large win­dow is opened, has di­rect ac­cess to the kitchen. A clus­ter of more cane chairs cre­ates a seat­ing/ re­lax­ing area at the other side of the deck. “Sit­ting here with a cup of tea and a book... al­ways puts me in the best mood,” Leonie says.

AC­CES­SORIES PLUS Colour­ful pat­terned cush­ions and uphol­stery on the vin­tage cane chairs give a retro feel to the deck. A bright table­cloth adds char­ac­ter to the space, while a long wooden built-in shelf un­der­neath the kitchen win­dow pro­vides ex­tra stor­age.
