Outdoor Living in Winter

Posted on

I must admit I have impatiently waited for Winter this year in Australia and couldn’t wait to rug up but one thing I will miss about the warmer months is being able sit outdoors under the alfresco area.
I have seriously been contemplating putting in an outdoor heater/fire but I am in desperate need of some ¬†inspiration, so allow me to indulge by posting pics of outdoor areas with built in fires that are a bit swoon worthy and you don’t have to have a large space to put one in either, there are some very nice fire pits that would look great in a courtyard .

Hampton’s Outdoor Living

Posted on

As some of you may have read in an earlier post we are in the process of owner building a home. I have been engrossed with the interior fittings lately and have neglected any research on the outdoor finishes, paving and plantings for the outdoor area. I have come across these pics as inspiration, seeing as we are going for an Australian beach house look I thought what better inspiration that the Hampton’s. There are a lot of great ideas for paving ¬†and decking here. What’s your favourite style?
