Recreate an Australian living-dining area in the comfort of your own home.
Australian living room

Architect Christopher Polly renovated an Australian home with sustainability and the outdoors in mind. The airy result is especially impressive in the indoor-outdoor eating and dining area. While we can’t replicate Polly’s design moves, we’ve taken apart the pieces so you can recreate the room’s laid-back, modern appeal. Photo by Brett Boardman
