“THE WHITE

WOODEN PERGOLA

CREATES A SHADY

SPOT FOR FAMILY

BARBECUES IN

THE GARDEN”

NATURAL CHARM

Dining alfresco doesn’t get more appealing

than at this bespoke teak table, which

enjoys the perfect amount of shade and

sunshine from the large pergola that has

been custom-built to suit the space. “We

only planted the bougainvillea about a

year ago, but it is already winding up the

pergola and will soon stretch over the top,

which will give it a lovely lived-in look,”

says Kym. The wood-look tiles were a steal

from Dragonmart while the egg chair, like

the rest of the furniture, was custom made

in Indonesia.

TAKE THE PLUNGE

The plunge pool, by Pools By Design, is

small but perfectly formed, with clever

underwater lighting allowing for a

refreshing nighttime dip. “We added wide

steps in the shallow end to make the pool

especially family-friendly – it’s great for

kids who simply want to sit and splash

around,” says Kym. “We expect the ficus

trees will bush out in time to afford a bit

more privacy.”
