A summer essential for all Queensland homes, especially those with a pool is an outdoor umbrella. To protect you and your family from the heat and unwanted sun exposure an outdoor umbrella is the perfect addition to your backyard. Outdoor Living Aspley has a range of umbrellas in a variety of colours to create either a simple and chic look or a fun pop of colour. From a small umbrella that allows shade for a couple or a large umbrella that can protect an entire dining table, they have got you covered. We love the canter leaver shelta umbrella in French grey for a practical and stylish edition to your backyard –
Entertaining at home during the Summer months is a Queensland tradition and you’ll find most of us in the backyard of a Sunday afternoon relaxing with family and friends. When entertaining at home, adequate outdoor seating is a high priority and options for lounging, sitting and conversation zones must be considered. Outdoor Living Aspley has a huge range of seating options in a wide variety of colours, fabrics and materials to suit any design style. They have beautiful outdoor sofas, armchairs and modular pieces to create the perfect lounging zone on your outdoor patio. Or if you are in need of some bar stools, day beds, sun lounges or dining chairs they have got you covered too.
Cushions are often thought of for living rooms and bedrooms only and sometimes forgotten in the outdoor decorating space. Outdoor cushions are the perfect addition to any patio or alfresco space as they add a sense of comfort and blend the indoors with the outdoors. Outdoor Living Aspley has beautiful cushions that are purpose made for outdoor use and are specifically designed for marine conditions, UV protection and are water repellent. This means they can stay outside all year long and you won’t notice any colour fading or mould. We love the camburi yellow throw cushion that would be the perfect addition to any outdoor sofa or daybed this Summer.
Outdoor Fire Pits
To create the ultimate outdoor oasis and luxurious entertaining space, we recommend adding an outdoor firepit to your home. Not only do they create a beautiful ambience and look amazing, but they also encourage friends and family to gather around and enjoy quality time together. An outdoor fire pit is the perfect cosy addition to your Summer soiree to end the night in a relaxing way. Outdoor Living Aspley offers a variety of styles and materials, so whether you are looking for a sleek, modern design or a traditional cast iron look, they have got you covered.
Lastly, our final tip for decorating an outdoor area is to add plenty of greenery through outdoor plants. Plants are no longer restricted to garden beds and the perimeter of the backyard, we are seeing beautiful potted plants becoming more and more popular in outdoor designs. We suggest grouping three large pots in varying sizes in the corner of the alfresco area holding tall plants such as a bird of paradise or palm. Add greenery to your tables by potting a large bowl with some succulents and moss for a centrepiece that lasts all year round. Not only do outdoor plants bring life and vibrancy to a space, they also add a pop of colour and statement to your alfresco.
