Outdoor Rooms – Homes & Gardens

The August issue of Homes & Garden’s (out now) is a special treat this month.  A whole section on ‘Outdoor Rooms’ with lots of superb styling tips from Kate French and Ali Brown.  They talked about multi-functional furniture and upholstered sofas, all designed for outdoor use but looking good enough to house inside.  Sofas layered with colourful cushions, made from all weather fabrics, and woven stools that can double as tables.
