Creating the Perfect Outdoor Living Space
Creating the Perfect Outdoor Living Space is in collaboration with Thomson Outdoor Pine.
The house we have moved to has a beautiful outdoor living space and we’re lucky enough to have a big garden for the kids to run around in.
Whilst we’ve been busy unpacking and coming up with ideas for the inside of the house, we haven’t done anything outside yet.
Part of the reason we moved back to Australia is because we love spending time outdoors and our decking area is so lovely with both an open and undercover area.
I want to try and create an outdoor living space that both kids and adults will want to spend time in. We’re social and love to have friends round for BBQ’s and playdates with the kids and as I work from home, I would like to spend time working outside sometimes too.
So we need an outdoor living space that is practical for all of those things.
I’ve been scouring Pinterest for ideas and I’m getting really excited now about the potential the space has. Here are a couple of the ideas I’ve loved.
A timber deck is great for families and Miss M regularly rides her scooter up and down ours. I can’t wait to start decorating and share with you how it turns out!
I came across Thomsons Outdoor Pine recently, who offers bespoke timber deck designs to fit your liking. They also have a great variety of pergolas, timber screens, gates, carports and treated pine decking.
I love this beautiful space with the clean look of the white and pale timber together. I have seen an outdoor furniture set, (further down the post) that I really like that would help recreate this space on our deck.
I’ve just discovered House of Turquoise – a beautiful home and interiors blog that’s all things turquoise! It’s one of my favourite colours, along with teal, aqua and mint, so this blog is a real treat for me. I love the colour scheme of this beautiful deck and how the space is defined into separate dining and seated areas.
I’d love to be able to have a dining space with a large table big enough for family and friends, and then perhaps an area with sofas and soft furnishings to relax with a glass of wine in the evening.
I love this outdoor furniture set from Freedom Furniture. It’s currently on sale, and I’m so tempted to get it!
