For many Australians outdoor living and entertaining is a big part of everyday life, especially as the warmer months roll around.
As such, this has influenced décor and design trends in recent years. Many of us are trying to bring that coveted indoor/ outdoor flow into our homes or create the perfect outdoor space for entertaining or simply just relaxing.
If you’re looking for inspiration for your own outdoor space or just dreaming of somewhere to spend your summer holidays, you need to take a look at these outdoor rooms.
Greenery? Check. Outdoor fireplace? Check. Amazing light fixture and comfy furniture? Check, check! This spot would be great for entertaining on those balmy summer evenings as well as throughout winter.
Or perhaps you’d like something simpler and tidy…
Or a rooftop entertaining space…
Or an enclosed space protected from the weather?
Do you have a swing and lots of colour in your dream outdoor room? If so, take some inspiration from this colourful bohemian space.
For Australians, a pool makes an outdoor space the whole family will enjoy.
But it’s also hard to go past this beautiful patio with forest views.
Or this grand space…

But sometimes all you need is a big table where the whole family can sit around and share a meal.
While these outdoor rooms are obviously not possible in every home, it’s possible to work with what you do have to create a stylish outdoor space. Read more on how to style your alfresco area.
