EXTERIORS IT'S TIME TO LIVE OUTSIDE CREATE A SPACE TO DO YOUR THING Interior designer Tara Dennis. See Tara Dennis at the Better Homes and Gardens Live Shows at Sydney Showground from September 14- 16. Tickets available at bhglive.com.au RELAX IN OUTDOOR AREAS Comfort is key. A simple chair with a cushion can be as welcoming as a huge outdoor lounge. Use colour to make a statement. Citrus brights are on-trend as accents, especially lemon yellow. Line up favourite herbs in colourful pots. With great advances in materials, you can decorate in the same way as indoors. Statement garden sculpture and feature lightning add glamour. Hang outdoor blinds to reduce strong sunlight and to keep the area cool. Susan Liu SPRING is in the air and there's no better way to enjoy the warmer weather than relaxing outdoors. From the smallest town- house to the grandest man- sion, Australians have ta- ken to the concept of outdoor living with a passion. Combined with our love of casual enter- taining, it is a natu- ral progression to extend our living areas into the backyard. Interior de- signer and TV presenter Tara Dennis says a great outdoor space can be any- thing from a whole garden to a deck, a porch or even a balcony. ''A simple chair with a cushion can be as welcom- ing as a huge outdoor lounge,'' Ms Dennis says. ''Sweep and clean, then set about giving the area some character and soul. Make it so you want to be there. ''You don't have to spend a fortune to make a big difference, just add what you love and you'll thoroughly enjoy relax- ing in your own little oasis.'' Dennis says colour can trans- form an ordinary setting into a cheerful and chic space. ''Citrus brights are on-trend as accents, yellow especially,'' she says. ''Use these for cushions, metal furniture, statement pots and feature lighting.'' Other trends for this season include rich, dark colours, such as slate blues and black. Pairing them with natural taupe shades and beiges for a thoroughly modern look. ''Fabrics are more durable and weather resistant than ever with a far broader range of design choice,'' Dennis says. ''You can even carpet an area with outdoor rugs that are com- pletely hoseable.''
