Lets take it outside – transform your patio

Lets take it outside – transform your patio

Let’s face it, patio living is as much a part of our lifestyle here in sunny SA as braai and biltong. Because we love the outdoors so much, we’re also loving beautiful outdoor décor.

We’re going for modern, straight lines when decorating our outside spaces this season. Garden furniture is sleek, while beautiful cushions and throws soften the look. “Create the perfect setting with furnishing and décor accessories that are ideal for casual relaxed summertime entertaining,” says Megan Morgan, furniture buyer and décor expert for Coricraft.

“Definitely trending at the moment is the use of softer silhouettes in outdoor living, with an abundance of soft furnishing in muted and natural tones. Think beautiful scatters, cushions, soft throws and interesting décor pieces,” advises Morgan.

And why not add some floor cushions, seeing as there’s always someone seated on the floor during a casual braai? This also adds depth and pizazz to your outdoor décor look, and adds extra seating when friends come over for a braai.

For the evenings, a few lanterns dotted around will transform your patio, or use a hurricane and a few candles to turn an ordinary supper into a romantic dinner for two. Flowers picked straight from the garden add a special touch.

Glass bottles and mason jars – we can’t ever grow tired of them! They make such trendy, yet homey décor pieces for your outside area. Fill them with any flowers or plants you want for an extra zhoosh.
