Being Outsiders: Compose a warm alfresco setting

by Aditi Gaitonde Nov 27, 2015

For your next get-together, take your friends and family outside the house, literally! Charm your party with a welcoming alfresco luncheon right in your backyard. Take a cue from this nature loving home in Alibaug, Maharashtra imagined by interior designer Shafali Chowdhrie Diwanji of Studio SCD and make it your own.

It’s okay to be a little cheeky with your decor. Display your wit by using fresh, wide leaves from nearby trees as coasters for drinks.  

Falling short of garden furniture to fit the gang? Head indoors and bring out your cosiest armchairs for a mismatched and eclectic setup a la Alice in Wonderland.
