Just because you’re enjoying the great outdoors doesn’t mean you should be sacrificing the marvels of modern day technology. After all, what’s a jog in the park without your IPod or a chic day sightseeing without your digital camera? Bar none technology is the most compatible companion to enjoying natures best!
Here’s some chic inspiration from the June issue of Home Decor and Renovation Magazine on newsstands now featuring a Tech Savy backyard space I recently stylized!
Today’s technology can cross the divide of interior to exterior living using the finest electronic components in the most luxurious finishes to create a functional but aesthetically pleasing, relaxing and entertaining oasis.
What I love about the summer is it’s the perfect time to throw caution to the wind and inject some hot sizzle into your summer style. Go bold and be inspired by nature and choose colours that are vibrant and juicy and recall your favourite plantings.
Nature is the perfect backdrop to play off and perhaps the easiest to find inspiration.
RAD ADVICE: HERES SOME SUNSATIONAL TIPS TO HELP MAKE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE A SUMMER SHOWSTOPPER…
1. Think Inside Out
Your patio is no different than your living room.
Think of Fencing as walls that can be dressed with mirrors, trellises and objects of art.
2. Colour Yourself Chic
Design has to have an expressive value otherwise it becomes old very quickly. Be bold and paint a planter or gate the colours of your love.
3. Global View
decorate without boarders, find inspiration in exotic colours, patterns and unusual objects from different cultures.
4. Bloom Box
Planters, urns and chic containers are an outdoor essential. From hammered aluminum, reclaimed barn-board to colourful fibre glass and resin, define and dress your patio or balcony with the season chicest. Try using automotive spray paint to give urns a custom dazzling and durable metallic makeover
