Discover How to Make the Most of Your Outdoor Space This Winter

As winter approaches, it's time to transform your outdoor area into a snug retreat where you can still enjoy the beauty of nature while staying warm and cosy. Living in Australia means we're fortunate to have outdoor spaces that can be utilised year-round, and with a few simple touches, you can make your patio or garden a welcoming haven during the cooler months.


1. Choose the Perfect Outdoor Rug

Start by selecting an outdoor rug that not only adds style but also provides warmth underfoot. Our Taupe & White Indoor Outdoor Rug is a beautiful option that adds a soft, subtle touch to any lounge room or outdoor entertaining area.


2. Layer Up with Winter Throws

Layer your outdoor setting with luxurious throws to create a snug spot to relax and unwind. Our Bemboka Angora & Merino Chunky Cable Throws, available in various colourways including a stunning mocha shade, are exquisitely crafted in New Zealand from premium angora and merino wool, offering unparalleled softness and warmth.

3. Set the Mood with Candlelight

Lighting plays a crucial role in creating a cosy atmosphere. Our Palm Tree Mercury Glass Candle Holders and Square Lanterns in gold and black are perfect for adding a warm, ambient glow to your outdoor space. Whether placed on the floor or on tables, these candle holders will enhance the cosy vibe of your winter retreat.

4. Gather Around for Warmth

There's nothing quite like gathering around a fire pit on a chilly evening. Consider creating your own outdoor fire pit where you can gather with family and friends, enjoy the crackling flames, and sip on a glass of red wine as you share stories and laughter.


5. Update Your Outdoor Setting

Invest in quality outdoor furniture to ensure comfort and durability throughout the seasons. Our Hampton Outdoor range offers stylish and practical options, including the Hampton Outdoor 3 Seater Sofa Natural With Linen. Made from woven polyethylene and premium polyester cushions, this sofa is designed to withstand the elements while providing maximum comfort.

6. Add Greenery and Decorative Accents

Bring life to your outdoor space with lush greenery and decorative accents. Our Artificial Dancing Orchid Mix in Glass Bowl offers all the beauty of real orchids without the maintenance, while our Clam Shell Trinket Boxes and White Clam Shell make elegant additions to any tabletop or shelf.

7. Complete the Look with a Coffee Table

No outdoor lounge area is complete without a stylish coffee table. our Hampton Outdoor Coffee Table Teak, crafted from sustainable kiln-dried teak, adds a touch of elegance to your outdoor space and provides the perfect surface for drinks, snacks, and décor.

Transforming your outdoor space into a cosy winter retreat doesn't have to be complicated. With the right elements, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere where you can enjoy the beauty of nature year-round. So, embrace the cooler months and make the most of your outdoor living space with these simple yet effective tips.
