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.
