It's the weekend and with this warmer Spring weather it's time to get outdoors again for some outdoor entertaining. The garden will need a bit of a spruce up, paths and paving hosed down, decks re-stained and the outdoor umbrella dug up from the garden shed and dusted off. All of these stylish outdoor loggias have a couple of things in common - they all incorporate the use of natural materials in the building elements like stone, timber and reed matting and the furniture settings all have rattan and cane into the mix to give the space a relaxed, casual feel. These outdoor rooms all have nice generous proportions for lots of guests to get comfortable and the details have all been well considered - fireplaces, lighting and curtains all add style and interest.
