Outdoor living inspiration

January 25, 2017

There’s nothing like sitting out in the backyard with family and friends on a balmy Summer’s night, watching the sun go down with a drink in hand. In order to make the most of the outdoors and beautiful weather, blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Create outdoor spaces that are an extension of your indoor style.

Design and landscaping is becoming more sophisticated with many spaces integrating features such as fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, edible gardens, bars and outdoor showers.

Outdoor sofas are increasingly popular, part of a shift towards more casual alfresco entertaining. Timber furniture is timeless. oversized pieces are a key trend as well as natural materials such as teak and linens. Planter pots, fire pits and festoon or string lights add a sense of occasion. Balance of durability, style and comfort should be the goal when selecting outdoor furniture. think about how you will primarily use it – alfresco dining, weekend relaxing, or family and friends get-togethers. If you’re looking to freshen up your space – outdoor cushions, lanterns, rugs and baskets are a great way of injecting colour and a fresh new look to your alfresco area. A hammock swing, like our Noosa natural or black and white stripe is a gorgeous feature for the corner of your outdoor space, and a great place to retreat with your favourite magazine or novel when you’re not entertaining.

Outdoor showers are becoming increasingly popular especially in places close to the beach or with a pool. It’s like a holiday at home!

Bars and opening shutters from the kitchen are a great way to bring the indoors out and work really well for dinner parties.

Bench seats are a great way to utilise space and immerse yourself within the gardens.

Varying levels of decking breaks up the space into allocated areas.
