Outdoor Rooms & Gardens

Outdoor Rooms and entertaining areas are very much part of our lifestyle now.  It really does become an extension of our home.  In Australia, we love to entertain in the outdoors, especially with our climate.  You may want to design the space to simply relax, dine and entertain friends and family.


It doesn’t matter whether you have a small terrace/courtyard (like myself) or a vast space.  With some simple design solutions you can create an amazing and ambient outdoor room.  Make sure the furniture you select is comfortable and practical for entertaining.  Orientation is also important, think about the way you want to use the space and keep this in mind.

Don’t be afraid to use splashes of colour.  Some simple cushions and throws can make all the difference to the overall look.  If you are slightly crafty and not afraid of a little DIY….make some of your own cushions.  Spotlight stores have a great selection of outdoor weatherproof fabrics, specifically designed for our harsh conditions in Australia.
Add some pots and fill them with succulents and hard-wearing plants….especially if you are not a green thumb like me.


Finally, don’t be scared to change things around, by moving furniture and pots, you may change the complete look of the room.
