The outdoor room on our cover this month is so welcoming, don’t you think? Right now, I can’t think of anything nicer than plonking down on that sofa, putting my feet up and pouring a G&T (though it does look like minted water on the coffee table). It’s the styling that makes this scene so friendly. The seating is pulled in close, perfect for great conversation should a friend stop by, and all the furniture is accessorised as if it were in an indoor room, layered with throws and cushions. With a few tweaks like these, it’s easy to give your outdoor seating a style update in time for summer. And if you’re looking for a brand new set, our guide to the best seats outside the house on page…

“IT’S A SPACE WHERE NO-FUSS INTERIORS encourage you TO WALK BAREFOOT, WHILE THE SOOTHING NATURAL PIGMENT OF THE WALLS, THE ENVELOPING CHAIRS AND THE DEEP, SIMPLE SOFAS SAY ‘FEET UP’”~ BOYD Catering to everyone’s tastes and preferences isn’t without its challenges when you’re part of a large family. Yet for interior designers Boyd, co-founder of internationally acclaimed design studio Cécile & Boyd, and his sister and business partner Geordi, the combined input of their entire family – from tweens, teens and grandparents alike – proved to be a style winner when creating this family’s stunning multigenerational weekender, an hour’s drive from Cape Town. “We had a democratic approach to the process where everyone had a say from the youngest to the oldest,” recalls Boyd. The family bought the property, named Abraça, in…
