With travel and holidays limited for most families this summer, why not bring your favourite holiday destination home to you? This week, Johanna and Charlie are doing just that. They’re helping a family create a resort-style space in their own backyard that’s part Byron Bay, part Arizona-inspired. With a simple black and white palette, minimalist design features, boardwalks, chill-out spots, a pergola, edible garden and more, the best part of this resort is that it can be enjoyed all year round.
