Al’ Fresco

al·fres·co (ăl-frĕs’kō)
In the fresh air; outdoors

As much as I am passionate about interiors, I love outdoors with the same fervour. People who know me also know that as soon as I enter a room, I gravitate towards the window, and am the first one to open up the curtains or the blinds.

Covering some al’ fresco options in this post. Focus – boutique resorts/hotels in India, which have made dining in the open in vogue again.

  1. I agree, I think the outside is just as important as the inside and these images are proof that you can create design magic in mother nature. just breath taking. i wish i had an outdoor space like that!
