Style tip:

To create a sense of both distinction and connection between each of these zones, consider different furniture and accessories that share a simple palette of common materials or colour.

Living large

When you have the luxury of a bigger outdoor area, it opens you to more creative options for different outdoor living zones.

Make the most of your open garden area by popping an umbrella near your lounge or dining area so you can enjoy the warmth of the sun whilst having shade. Accessorise your green space with large potted plants in different shapes and heights, placed together in clusters of two or three for a stronger visual impact.

An alfresco dining area gives you the freedom to enjoy eating and entertaining amongst nature, whilst being protected from the elements, all year round. Your dining table will likely be the focal point of this area, so make a style statement with a welcoming table that fits your space.

Next, make sure you’ve got somewhere comfortable to sit, whether that’s your dining chairs or your lounge. And don’t be afraid to get creative! A hammock, a swing, a bench and plush floor cushions are all fun ways to use your space.

Then, decorate your space with lighting, potted plants and outdoor rugs. Not only do these all tie your space together, they soften any hard areas or flooring. Consider placing a rug under your dining table and another to anchor your lounge furniture. And if your space allows, adding a fireplace, firepit or chiminea will help keep you warm in the cooler months, maximising the usability of your outdoor living area all year round.

A clever idea is to connect each of your outdoor spaces — whether that’s your garden, pool, dining or lounge area — with pathways to create a consistent flow. A modern take on these paths could be concrete and brick pavers or timber decking, all of which make for great links between these spaces. Illuminate your pathways with garden lights for easy wayfinding, additional safety and also to highlight any features you want to show off.

Here are some of our top picks for living large outdoors.
