10 creative ideas on how to decorate your garden, by recycling.

Summer is the most celebrated season, because summer it is more associated with life, birth and rebirth when plants blossom, and animal life reassumes activity and nature feels alive again. We are now halfway through summer and then autumn will come, to refresh us with its crisp air and dreamy nature.

All seasons are magnificent but autumn is the most wonderful season of all. The temperature is just perfect, streets turn into colourful pictures as people drive to work, and the leaves into a melancholic and romantic reminder of another season gone by. What do I think when I hear the word autumn? I think of crisp refreshing air, mountains full of warm colours and people walking on a sea of leaves. Trees don’t hold hands anymore but seem to march in a melancholic solitude when we drive past them. Leaves change from green to orange, and from red to yellow. It is still a great season to enjoy and decorate your garden and celebrate the beauty of life.

If you are a lover of both summer and autumn, follow me below with some garden decorations tips for this summer and autumn.

1. Lantern with flowers

Decorate your old lantern with flowers when having friends over for breakfast, lunch or tea. 


2. Make a vertical garden out of an old pallet

The vertical garden on a pallet, creates a natural and chic area.

3. Paint and decorate your old bench 

The floral fantasy gives a romantic feel to the outdoor area. If you find it hard to paint the flowers, a plain white bench works well too. 

4. A little well for your little wishes

Decorate it with candles and floating flowers

5. Make shelves out of old fruit crates 

This one of my most favourite garden decorations. 

6. Candle holders out of recycled old jars

Hang your recycled jars and place candles in them.

7. Garden umbrella hand decorated

Use a white umbrella and decorate it with leaves made out of fabric. Use glue to stick them on it.

8. Another way how to decorate an umbrella 

9. Paper lanterns with butterflies

Get crafty and make some butterflies out of paper and stick them on the paper lanterns.

Future focus: Rendition Homes Innovate at Lightsview

Architectural creativity and a keen interest in liveability come together in Rendition Homes' new waterfront display home at Lightsview.

The two-storey, three - bedroom house, which was designed in collaboration with the renowned architects at Tectvs, is at the very top end of Rendition's range and takes its inspiration from an on-trend Californian, mid-century aesthetic. Managing Director of Rendition Homes, Wayne Fazzalari, says Lightsview is the only suburb where it makes sense for his company to build a home of this type. 

"I wouldn't invest this much money in a new development anywhere else in Adelaide", he says. "But in Lightsview, with the water aspect, this environment and the proximity to the CBD its a worthwhile investment."

Located alongside the lake and wetlands of Lightsview's Waterford percent, the home takes full advantage of it's positioning with one frontage addressing the water view and the other addressing the street. Set into each frontage is an outdoor entertainment area, meaning the home has double the usual allocation of outdoor space.

This significant feature translates into the interior of the home where the views over the two courtyards lend a feeling of spaciousness to every room in the home.

"As soon as you walk in the front door you see straight through to the back outdoor area and then your view just keeps going on out over the water. It's seamless, "says Wayne. "because of the nature of the house - with the double frontage and the reserve to the rear - everywhere you look you see out. You're always looking through to something else."

A cohesive material and interior-design palette uses natural textures juxtaposed with industrial fittings to complement the connection the home has to its external environment.

The master bedroom's ensuite is a particularly strong example of this styling at work. The black Caroma bath is a leading element in a room that also includes feature tiles, matte black taper and pendant lights.

Wayne says the home will serve as an example to visitors of Rendition Homes' ability to be innovative and practical at the same time, whilst designing a home that suits a person's specific needs.

"Buying a house is an emotional thing," he says. "It's about creating the right feel in the home but also giving people what they want within their budget - in this market you have to be otherwise you'll fall behind."
