As Canadians, we don’t take our warm weather for granted. We stake claim to every moment of sunshine. In cherishing the landscapes we have, we strive to extend our outdoor happiness as much as possible, creating a sort of second home, within reach of the fridge. Be inspired by what’s possible and work with what you have.

One of the easiest and most flexible designs to pull together is the an accessories–driven, eclectic mix. Several design origins have been pulled in, from modern to bohemian, clean lines to intricate detail. Adding to the success of this oasis is the massive infusion of colour and pattern that brings it to life and can easily be changed up from year to year. The basic furniture pieces are neutral and without any structural or landscaped considerations, this can be created or reimagined, all before the ice in your lemonade melts.
