Entertaining at home over Christmas and Summer? Let us guide you on the best ways to use and style your home and outdoor space.
Summertime brings everyone out of their homes and naturally drawing us to our outdoor spaces.
After living and working on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula for 8 years, it is evident that we are all lovers of our outdoor retreats, BBQ dining, gardens and pools. The Mornington Peninsula offers this magic relaxed coastal lifestyle feel that many Melbourne based residents crave and love so much.
Is your outdoor space welcoming and functioning at its best for you and your guests?
Some of the 2018/2019 outdoor styling and design trends to work with are;
Greenery– Green, green and more green -inside and out, real plants or if you are not a green thumb like me – there are now many quality artificial green options too that we can work with. Even if you don’t have a large space, we love the local work of @wallenvy. Their products can be used inside and out to achieve a stunning aesthetic in the home.
Creating “Nature’s Retreat”using lots of natural elements is important and a neutral colour palette – furniture wise natural timbers like teak and oak are a great investment, additionally white and grey always looks fresh. Cushion colours in white or cream with differing textures and shapes offer a fresh and inviting coastal palette. Accent colours to look for are green and blue – and don’t be afraid to use them together!
Furniture placement– size, scale and balance is also extremely important to make your outdoor space a stylish retreat.
If you would like us to design, furnish and style your space or just consult on some new ideas, we would love to hear from you. Our recent work can be viewed on our Instagram account.
