“With our climate, it’s no surprise that Australians love outdoor entertaining, but it wasn’t that long ago that it consisted of little more than a weathered timber picnic table and some faded plastic chairs – and a barbecue, of course!
Now, our outdoor areas are central to the design of a home, and the décor and style of these spaces is every bit as important to us as those inside – and it makes sense given how much time we spend there. Where we once furnished our balconies, terraces and gardens as an afterthought, we now see them as an extension of our indoor living areas, and the pieces we choose complement the style we like indoors. Colours follow the interior fashion, styles are in line with trends, and gorgeous homewares, like cushions and candleholders, can be changed seasonally to play up the area.
There are two big changes that have changed the way we furnish our exterior spaces. Firstly, top-end designers have turned their talents outdoors, and this clever design has filtered down. So no longer do we have a choice of one table and matching chairs, we can mix and match and choose multipurpose pieces that stack, contain storage or can be used inside and out. The other advance is in the materials used – think all-weather resin wicker, marine-grade aluminium, powdercoated steel, PVC and in fabrics, solution-dyed acrylic. These materials are durable and no longer fade after a blistering summer.
So with barbecue season almost upon us, outdoor entertaining has never looked so good!”
