b'-dyalternative solutiondeco glam deco glam in an outdoor entertaining dreamRock the House designer and The Block NZ TV presenter Shelley Ferguson suggests this alternative scheme:I love the connection to the outdoors this architecture allows, so have created a fresh, uplifting and summery design to maximise outdoor living and reflect our coastal colour palettes. The hero is Resene Nebula on the cabinets, one of my favourite grey/greens, which picks up the colours of the pale blue swimming pool and the crisscrossed star jasmine on the back wall. Deco-inspired touches include arch motifs on the cabinetry, globe lighting, statement marble, tufted bench seats and a glamorous inbuilt bar.
