LIFESTYLE: ROOMS WITH A VIEW

A New perspective

 

Turn a verdant view into a head-turning focal point that imbues your home with colour and light.

 

1 The home office Make a small space work harder! Tuck a simple table or desk beneath a garden window and create a wonderful light-filled workspace.

2 Looking up Velux windows frame the skyline, so make the most of the lofty view and arrange low-slung seating or tables below.

5 New focus Frame an engaging view when designing a kitchen: cook and dining areas become sociable spots when those perched around them can gaze out to glorious greenery.
