Outdoor living at its best with NZ House & Garden

Outdoor living at its best with NZ House & Garden

Spring is here and to celebrate the anticipation of warm summer weather the November issue of NZ House & Garden presents a special feature on outdoor living and entertaining, with great solutions for turning outdoor areas into real living spaces.

"Gardens, balconies and other outdoor spaces offer a relaxed and casual approach to easy living, and are the best places to entertain in the warmer months. The latest issue has plenty of ideas and inspiration for creating a relaxing, yet stylish outdoor setting," says Michal McKay, Editorial Director.

"We often tend to think of décor for our interiors only - but the poolside, garden and balcony areas are perfect for creative paving, plants, water features and showcase lighting, to name but a few ideas!"

The magazine also includes stunning but easy ideas for entertaining alfresco - a pretty garden tea party complete with a floral theme, creative ideas for serving delicious drinks outside and a selection of canapés from top chef Peter Gordon.

For more reader inspiration, NZ House & Garden visits an American couple who have found paradise on Waiheke Island after searching the world over. Originally a bare paddock, the owners have created a masterpiece of sustainable architecture influenced by classic Mediterranean buildings.

Also in the November issue:

* NZ House & Garden visits a sweeping garden overlooking Lake Wakatipu recently named 'Landscape of the Year' by the Landscape Industries Association of New Zealand.
