style | decor | fashion | DIY | design | organisation: tips, tricks & clever ideas for the savvy girl

For many years my family patio was used mostly in Summer – lunches out under the bouganvillea, sleeping on an old mattress in the dappled shade, decorating the overhang with lights for Christmas… since my mom re-did our patio by adding a perspex roof (bringing in the light, but not the rain) and building a braai area – we are now using it ALL year round!

A good patio that is welcoming and attractive, is a space that is great to relax in, entertain in, eat, drink & be merry in, and to think and dream in! Today’s post on The Good Girls Guide is all about Pretty Patios – whether small courtyards, or sprawling kitchen door yards, rooftop gardens or glamorous party spaces.  Decorate with revamped chairs, installations on the walls, pot plants, refurbished benches, vintage pieces or a birdbath. Be inspired!
