These are all the ideas I would simply love to incorporate in to my future home. Unfortunately, to make the below come true, it is going to burn a gaping hole in my pocket. Hence, I foresee it will be a work in progress spreading out over 10 years! Lol.
Hmmmm... so, what would be a must have at my outdoor entertainment area??
#1 A deck / patio where I can invite friends and family over for a BBQ session (it's a pretty big thing in Aussie that families do a 'barbie' even on a casual week night dinner).
#2 Nice long table with ample seating to fit the many guests.
#3 A lovely garden that just oozes with peace and tranquility and beautiful plants with colourful flowers (oh yeah, a pear and orange tree, too!).
#4 Definitely a pond teeming with gold fish.
#6 A swing / egg shelled chair for lounging and reading books.
#7 Now that I think about it, I would like to have a round table to enjoy drinking Chinese tea the proper way with some Chinese looking chairs, the antique wooden sort with ivory etchings.
#8 Not forgetting a herb garden filled with basil, coriander, chives, tomatoes which are the main ingredients we usually use.
#9 Quirky Melburnian (yes, that's how you spell the word!) hanging lights.
#10 Fan for hot summer days and good lighting for nights. Blinds to keep out the gusty wind on Korean BBQ and steamboat nights.
Enjoy the endless possibilities. Extracted the pictures just by Google. Reckon they are mainly American type of houses.
