WOW FACTOR: Living wall

Good Homes Roomsets Outdoor Room

 Image: Andrew Boyd

Indoor-outdoor rooms are becoming ever more popular, and multi-purpose furniture and flooring that blurs the boundaries of the two spaces is a great choice for these areas. This urbanite garden will feature a gorgeous wood-cladded fence with stylish vertical planters growing nourishing vegetables and herbs. Practical floorboards in a warm wood tone lead from the kitchen to the outside space, and the smooth timber lounge furniture is accessorised with zesty tableware and tropical-inspired details – plus there’s barbecue area and steel firepit for evening entertaining. Bold, citrus colours add a Mediterranean feel, and comfy weatherproof cushions and throws to create a year-round space.
