Nothing’s more enticing on a sunny day than a cushy selection of seating options out back to relax and entertain. We’ve got some great inspiration for creating an outdoor zone for every occasion.
An inviting outdoor living space should feel like an extension of your interior. It offers extra square footage for the family to spread out and a fresh space to entertain friends in the open air.
Firing up the barbecue and dining outdoors is an Aussie institution. Whether breaky with the family, lunch with the gals or a feast with friends, the right dining set will be comfy and able to accommodate your clan.
If space allows, a garden gazebo can be the most enchanting way to make a lush little retreat for you and the family to relax. Tuck your dining set or some comfy armchairs beneath it create a Saint Tropez vibe in your own backyard.
We all need a scrumptious space to escape on our own from time to time. Spoil yourself with a comfortable outdoor armchair, day bed or hanging basket chair to position out on the deck or on the front porch. Select one with a fitted cushion so you can curl up with glossy magazine and a cool drink and escape into a little “me time”.
Summer really kicks off when it’s warm enough to enjoy catch-ups over cocktails with friends out on the balcony or deck. Create a special space for the chardonnay and canapés with an alfresco bar table and stools. A little taller than your standard outdoor table, the height makes it comfortable to sit or stand as you sip your cosmopolitan.
Don’t forget the kids! It doesn’t matter if your space is big or small, having a dedicate area with swings or a slide for the kids to play will keep them entertained. The littlies love sandpits and nothing beats the good ol’ fashioned inflatable swimming pool on hot days if you don’t have the real thing!
