With warmer weather once again beckoning, now’s the time to style your outdoor space for Summer 2020. With our ideas below, you can make it so special you won’t want to step foot in the lounge or dining room all summer. Start by cleaning and touching up the space itself – be it the deck, the rock or the balcony – then add your statement pieces and finishing touches.

The essentials
Whether you’re entertaining or simply relaxing, you’ll need a somewhere to sit – and put a drink and magazine at a minimum. So alongside your sofa or chaise, position a coffee table or multiple stools that complement the accents of your seating. If you need an entire dining and reclining solution, ensure you shop with your end result in mind – are you striving for the contemporary look of low, sleek lines and beautiful timber accents or a coastal vibe of wicker and cool shades?

The detail
Bring your setting to life with embellishments that really define the area. Provide under-foot comfort – and personality – with an outdoor rug, and some colour to the seating with outdoor cushions. The key: to ensure they’re weather resistant – this allows for quick drying from those summer storms and easy cleaning (for the rug, simply sweep or hose). Fill the space around your new furniture with tall pot plants, and if possible add some wall-mounted greenery. Then offset it all with a spectacular fire pit.

The sundowners
As the sun sets, bring another element of magic to the scene with lighting that evokes a festive and warm atmosphere. From strings of café lights to lanterns and flaming torches, your outdoor world is your oyster.
