Outdoor living and entertaining is one area that you can be brave in your colour choices. If you are like me and extremely safe with your interior colour schemes, your outdoor area is something that you can experiment with by trying brighter options as this area of the house can be changed so easily.

Seasonal change dictate our outdoor living habits so Spring and Summer is the time that we entertain the most outside, so using colour  need not be permanent out here and can be changed as simply a bright dinner setting or a coat of paint to some wooden furniture. You could even be a little braver and paint a feature wall if you have one as a really bright wall outside looks fabulous as a garden backdrop but inside could be quite disastrous.

Garden furniture designers are beginning to manufacture brighter pieces and most stores now stock really colourful cushions and table accessories to give a really vibrant look to your outdoor space.

Be brave and try something different in the warmer months to give your outdoor space a real lift, you will be glad you did.

One thing I love about Summer is eating outdoors. Evenings seem to stretch further when you are sitting outside enjoying a meal with the family, it is one reason we decided that melamine / bamboo dinnerware an absolute must to stock on our website and it continues to be one of our most popular lines.

For anyone with kids the durability is great or even if you want something a little more stylish than plastic picnic plates melamine really fits the bill for dining outdoors in the Australian Summer. The range of vibrant patterns available now make a fashionable addition to your outdoor table.

We make sure our melamine exceeds all Australian standards and is imported from the U.S.A. where strict F.D.A. testing makes sure the products are safe. We also have an eco friendly range of 45% bamboo 55% melamine plates.
