ChestnutContemporary Patio, Melbourne
What Houzz contributors are saying:
10. Private Patio in MelbourneThis seating area designed by Peachy Green Garden Architects sits just off the living room and shows how a thoughtful setup in a small courtyard can feel as inviting as a larger space. The dark hues used for the back fence and patio furniture help these elements visually recede, creating the optical illusion that the space is bigger than it actually is. One’s eye is drawn instead to the vibrant foliage, the clear blue sky and the gauzy drapes of the living room that blow in the breeze — elements that invite one to step out for a quiet moment in the courtyard.
7. It keeps things cozy. Create an intimate seating area by surrounding the space with a black fence. This small terrace gets its snuggly feel from a wall of black overlaid with luscious green foliage. The furniture is also black, which allows it to blend into the background, adding an extra layer of coziness to the space.Tell us: Are you planning to paint your fence black, or have you already gone for it?
