Kylie, QLD

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

Dap­pled shade from sur­round­ing trees makes the per­fect back­drop for a din­ing area in the back­yard of Kylie and Nick’s bay­side home. The gran­ite­topped ta­ble and wrought-iron chairs are set away from the house on a paved area flanked by lawn and two beau­ti­ful lilly pilly trees. “The trees are gor­geous,” says Kylie. “They don’t shed many leaves and of­fer great shade from the af­ter­noon sun.” The eat­ing area sits half un­der a per­gola, which gives the struc­ture needed for the fea­ture can­de­labra hung over the ta­ble. The gar­den sets the tone for the ta­ble set­tings – from the pretty flo­ral table­cloth and the vases of lush leaves to the sprigs of rose­mary on each plate. “We use this space for spe­cial oc­ca­sions, like birth­days, Easter and Christ­mas,” says Kylie.
