We all love a nice verandah - especially when it comes attached to a beautiful Melbourne townhouse - but balconies can be equally impressive. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we only need take a leaf out of Romeo’s book to understand what a difference a balcony can make! They offer an oasis of outdoor living to those in apartment units and in many parts of the world are an important decorative element in the facade of a home. Here are 16 wonderfully whimsical to start your February.by Ingrid Schreiber · Leave a Comment
A beautiful backyard doesn’t have to equal a budget blowout - in fact, sometime the most practical of features can add significant value and appeal to your garden. Pavers are a long-time favourite for garden paths because of their versatility and weather endurance. Whether stone, brick or something entirely different, they can also provide an aesthetic focal point for your outdoor space. Here are a few stunning examples of how walkways can complement your home.by Ingrid Schreiber · Leave a Comment
Blessed as we are with the relentless hot sun of Down Under, sometimes all you want to do is enjoy a day in the fresh air without also copping a sunburn. Interior courtyards are a common feature across Mediterranean Europe and parts of Asia and are a great way for a property to harness the best of good weather. If you’re dreaming of an escape from your wintery blues, take a squiz at these gorgeous courtyard oases.by Ingrid Schreiber · Leave a Comment
They’re a staple of the Aussie landscape - whether adorning the lacy Victorian streetfronts of Melbourne or providing the eye candy for a night of backyard alfresco dining, patios are here to stay. Filigree verandahs are a legacy from colonial Australia, when the old architectural styles of Europe met with the hot Australian sun and realised something had to be done for inhabitants to live an outdoor lifestyle without risking too much sunburn or - in the case of tropical Queensland - drowning in a downpour. From country estates to modern townhouses, here are 26 stunning interpretations of this wrought-iron tradition.by Ingrid Schreiber · Leave a Comment
