Interior stylist Jason Grant made the most of the recent summer weather and took CR's new enamel storage containers and outdoor dining pieces for a test drive on Sydney's dreamy skyed Maroubra Beach. These cool retro shades helped fashion the most stylish beach picnic.
Summer is my favourite time of the year — counting down to some time off over the break, I’m never far from the water. Whether it’s the weekend or the holidays, I love to picnic and head off on adventures. Since I was a small boy a picnic has been something that I've loved, there is something nostalgic about it for me and the retro shades of these storage containers really heightens this feeling. There’s something so special about just packing up the car, heading off with friends and driving out of the city, be it only an hour away to a quiet beach or further afield for a long bush hike.
It's not about packing up your whole house, just the summer essentials: a picnic blanket, a beach towel, containers and plates – perfect for summer snacks or a BBQ. This season Country Road's colour palette ranges from soft dreamy pastels to bold pops of neon that sit along more classic colours and materials. These storage containers are seriously clever with silicone lids and a stylish enamel base.
