WHITE EXTERIORS INTERIORS BUILDING OUTDOORS KITCHENS & BATHROOMS
Come spring and summer, the aesthetic for the ultimate outdoor area is all about white.
resh, crisp and clean, white is the perfect companion to wicker and wood and will make outdoor living more sophisticated and stylish than ever before. The best part is that an investment in white furniture means you can furnish with confidence knowing these legacy pieces will stand the test of time. The thought of white may be tantalizing but has often carried a ‘proceed with caution’ label given that it has an increased susceptibility to dirt. Allay those fears though with a number of practical hacks including removing mold and mildew
by applying a solution of one part chlorine bleach with four parts of water. Patience is key – ensure you wait at least 10-15 minutes before rinsing and then let the sun work its magic to dry out your handy work. In the spirit of a ‘white out’ (seemingly ironic!), we’ve pulled together a collection of some of our favourite looks for the longer, balmier days. We’re feeling particularly generous, so you’ll also be able to spy some stunning flora over on page 75 of today’s issue that will make your outdoor area the envy of all your visitors.
