What’s your preferred outdoor living style? Beachy, café, minimalist, playful or rustic? There’s something for everyone to create your ideal Australia Day outdoor retreat. Take a look at the following styles for inspiration.
Style that doesn’t cost the earth
For a contemporary, café style that doesn’t cost the earth, a tempered glass top table, coupled with white plastic chairs makes for the perfect classic setting.
This relaxed outdoor setting is not only stylish and practical, but invites friends and family to just sit around and relax. Personalise your outdoor setting with your favourite coloured cushions. When purchasing cushions for outdoor settings, make sure they are made to withstand the elements and are anti-mould, UV treated for fade resistance, water resistant and machine washable.
Modern, yet relaxed
Brighten up your outdoor living area with a white framed outdoor lounge and if you’re lucky enough to have the room, a matching table setting. Invest in a good quality, rust resistant aluminum frame that will last for years. Alternatively, you can go a timber frame, which has the benefit of not falling victim to rust, however it still needs to be maintained with regular cleaning and oiling to maintain longevity.
If you love the look of the European countryside, then bring it into your own backyard by introducing an outdoor setting with earthy and rustic charm. An egg (or pod) chair with legs is perfect for those areas that don’t allow for the pod to be suspended. It is also far more versatile as you can move it around the courtyard, garden or deck. Compliment the earthy tones of your outdoor setting with a clay pizza oven. The smaller pizza ovens don’t require any assembling and are ideal for smaller outdoor living areas.
Timber outdoor settings create a warm and inviting area. The beauty of timber is that you can easily change the look of your space depending on the season or occasion by swapping colours and décor around. Bar settings are great for relaxed breakfast, lunches and dinner, and perfect for cocktail hour!
