Weekend Project: Connecting Your Indoor and Outdoor Living Spaces

For most of the year, outdoor areas are overlooked when it comes to decorating. You only need to look through your window to understand why. But as soon as the weather starts to warm up, patio decorating, and veranda projects are back on the agenda.

Indoor-outdoor spaces are a great way to make the most of your home when the sun is shining. Whether you’re alfresco entertaining or relaxing, fling your doors wide open and create a seamless connection between the inside and outside.

Paint a graphic shape:

10 minutes

Once you’ve painted the wall in white and it’s dry, decide on the basic layout of the design and at what height it should begin. Wipe a piece of chalk along the length of your string. Pin it to the wall at one end and select the angle..

20 minutes

Hold the string taut and ‘ping’ it to leave a line. Using the tape, mask along the line, then repeat for the intersecting lines. Repeat for the other colours..

30 minutes (+ drying)

Stir paint well before pouring into the tray. Paint up to and slightly over the tape line with a roller.

10 minutes

Carefully remove the masking tape and admire the results. .
