The important element here is for the space to be unpretentious and possess a sense of ease with no specific permanent style dominating the area. This way the theme and ambience can be changed up for many different occasions. The space can entertain an elegant evening under the stars, a sunny day around the barbecue or well as a child’s birthday party.
As with the other common areas a flow through and an ease of a story in the décor of the home needs to reflect those that share the space. Equally important is the need to kick it up a notch and take the space to a new level as it is often the most utilised area in a home. This area needs to impart a sense of being conversational and inviting ensuring guests all feel relaxed and at home.
