Is your Alfresco area Summer ready?

Updated: Aug 25, 2022

Spring has sprung and before we know it summer will be here so, now’s the perfect time to get your alfresco spaces summer-ready.

Outdoor areas are some of our favourite spaces because we love seeing the transformation of underused and neglected parts of outdoor areas into heavenly little spots.


Our amazing Aussie climate is a major reason why the rest of the world looks to us when it comes to alfresco design and indoor/outdoor living. We Aussies pride ourselves on doing alfresco living well, whether it’s outside enjoying family barbecues, having drinks on the patio or watching the kids play in the pool. Even when we’re inside the house, chances are we’ve got all the doors and windows thrown wide open.

Creating good indoor/outdoor flow in your home has the power to be life-changing. It can affect how you feel about your home, how often you want to be there and how you interact with your family and friends. In fact, we’d go so far as to say a good alfresco area can be therapeutic.

Your window coverings inside the home are a key styling item, right? Well, so are your exterior weather and shade coverings.
