Ahh the dry season…..

Perfect temperatures, bright blue skies and sunny days are all reasons we want to spend more time outside during the dry. Whether it’s eating, entertaining or simply lounging in your outdoor area, it might be time to rethink how the space looks and feels.

Tight budget? You don’t need to spend a lot of money making your outdoor space beautiful. All it takes is a few simple additions to transform an ordinary outdoor space into your own private sanctuary. 

Add a hammock

Adding a beautiful boho hammock can add instant charm and serenity to your space, allowing for relaxation – whether it be reading a book or simply basking in this glorious weather!

Create Mood Lighting

Lighting is by far the easiest way to add beauty and ambience to your outdoor area, especially for those of you who love to entertain with friends. It doesn’t have to be expensive – just head down to your local hardware and get creative with your hanging!

Get Planting

Add some colour and life with pot plants! You can even save money by painting them yourself and add some herbs to use in your kitchen or if you’re not a green thumb, succulents are hard to kill!

Funky furniture

Brighten up your outdoor area with some funky furniture. You can find cheap pieces at hardware stores or bring back old pieces to life with a fresh coat of paint.
