It’s still winter but I’m sure that many of you are already dreaming of spending time next to the pool or swimming in it. Here’s a dose of inspiration – a pool, a terrace with fireplace, a minimal fence, a bath and a view over Auckland Harbor. The whole backyard is done in minimalist style, very laconic and very comfortable. The space has a slight tropical feel due to the plants and palm; I love the outdoor shower with a bathtub – in case you want to relax outdoors, you can always take a bath. Minimalist and white concrete looks great with a wooden deck, and a simple fireplace and a rough wood bench look add warmth and coziness.
