DESIRABLE DESIGNS

Exterior design In summertime, we just can’t stay inside. Having breakfast on the terrace, tanning in the garden or having a glass of wine under the stars are just some of the season’s many delights to be enjoyed. These five beautiful design pieces will prepare your garden for your days in the sun. TEXT: ARNE ADRIAENSSENS  |  PRESS PHOTOS

In mere minutes, you can transform that dining room into two extra beds, or even a bar. Price on request www.umbrosa.be
