Embracing outdoor living for summer

Embracing outdoor living for summer

Summer is the time to focus on your outdoor living areas.  Create an inviting space to lounge around during the weekend while entertaining your friends!
Here are some tips on how to easily update your outdoor living area for the warmer seasons.

Outdoor Living

Take the “indoors” out & create an inviting living room on your patio or garden. Look for furniture that can withstand all types of weather and dress them up with outdoor fabrics and finishes. Outdoor fabrics can survive our South African sun and won’t fade or deteriorate. You will have to bring them inside when not in use though, as they can’t be left out forever.
Bright and bold works well in an outdoor living space so make that your focus when choosing colours and styles.


Outdoor Dining

Bring out the Weber or gas braai and create a welcoming dining environment for the warmer months.  Again, look for a durable outdoor dining set that can seat all your friends and decorate with some colour and fun accessories. Incorporate a garden feel in your décor too with some potted plants. Another good idea is to include a drinks area to your outdoor dining space so that everyone can gather around and enjoy an evening drink or two.



Pool Accessories

Yes, accessorise the pool! Look for fun inflatables or pool cushions and throw them in while entertaining your guests outside.
