HOW TO GET THE LOOK

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Reno Inspiratio­n -

1 RE­SORT LIV­ING

Aim for laid-back, open-plan liv­ing spa­ces dec­o­rated with mid-cen­tury fur­ni­ture. Out­side, breeze-block screens and deep canopies give homes their dis­tinct char­ac­ter while pro­vid­ing shade.

2 MAIN­TAIN FLOW

Flood in­te­ri­ors with light via ex­pan­sive use of glass, which also makes for a seam­less and co­he­sive flow be­tween in­door and out­door spa­ces.

3 SPLASH OF COLOUR

Al­low for a sig­na­ture pop of strik­ing colour – pink, turquoise or yel­low – amid a back­drop of crisp, clean white.

4 PLANT A DRY GAR­DEN

In­ter­sperse lush palms with drought-tol­er­ant cacti and suc­cu­lents. Fin­ish with a layer of gravel as mulch.
