Long, hot, summer days come with endless opportunities for alfresco entertaining.
As the weather warms up, we naturally gravitate from the lounge room to the patio to soak up the sun and fresh air.
In preparation for this seasonal move, it’s important to ensure your outdoor space is up to scratch and ready for when friends drop by for backyard barbecues, dinner parties and afternoons by the pool.
Adorn your patio area with a few simple, yet stylish items to take it from winter warmer to summer chic.
- Place a selection of trendy throw cushions on chairs and lounges to create a comfortable chill-out zone for your guests.
- Add some lush greenery to your entertaining area with medium-sized potted plants or hanging planters.
- Style with a palette of earthy neutral colours and tropical patterns for a look that's modern and fresh.
- Create interest and contrast by mixing contemporary print tablecloths with exposed wood benches and seats.
- Tie it all together with a vibrant pop of colour for an effortless summer look.
