8. Install a discreet screenWhen a casual, country-inspired outdoor zone introduces a high-tech TV screen, it takes design know-how to make it work. Fortunately, the earthy colour palette underplays the black wall-mounted TV above the mantelpiece – it is rarely noticed during the day when friends and family are socialising on the verndah. When installing, use specific speaker cable that’s rated for in-wall and outdoor use. It’s best to turn to a specialist who will also seal all wire connections and conduits with silicon to keep it wind-resistant and waterproof.
