Spring cleaning

With summer just around the corner, we've been sprucing things up. There's not much to do on the boatshed, so we've shifted our focus to a nearby house. For the past four years this lounge on the veranda has had its original 60s olive and orange cushions covered by makeshift white covers. It was time for a makeover, so I got my friendly upholsterer to recover the cushions in an oatmeal fabric:

The sandy tone gives it a subtle beachy feel and goes well with white:

We replanted the garden at the front of the veranda with some traditional plants like azaleas which I think are nonetheless compatible with the natives and the Aussie icon, the water tank:

Here is the bigger picture:

I can't wait till they grow and the flowers come out:

Thanks to our gardener friend Tass for selecting just the right plants for the space

Good job! Great lounge set, and the covering looks lovely. Nice veranda and plantings too.

Love the oatmeal colour you chose to re-do the chairs in. Fits in very well with the coastal look - lovely!

Love the fabric on the cushions. Makes it very beachy!

Oatmeal was a good choice, it looks gorgeous with the white (and not one bit 'tired')!
