How to turn your outdoor area into paradise

The perfect outdoor entertaining area or courtyard should be as comfortable as any room in your house. As with any styling project, choose a theme and create from there.

Kas Australia Cushions

Do you like trending, traditional or eclectic style? We’ve covered all bases for you with this selection of Kas cushions. For stockists visit

If space allows, create multiple zones. Group your table setting and barbecue into one area and create a secondary seating area, which focuses on relaxation or socialising. MWP suggestion: We love the idea of a reading corner. All you need is a small outdoor coffee table, a comfortable chair and a few plants. Perfection!

Tip: Introduce creature comforts such as books, magazines and your favourite artworks.

Think outside the box when it comes to plants. Vertical gardens, hanging pots and bright bursts of colour from fruit trees look great.

Salt and Pepper Planter
Get the look. The Monolith concrete planter in black is the perfect way to bring a touch of Mother Nature to your outdoor area. Visit

Wonder wall
Love the look of marble but can’t afford the real thing? Or perhaps you have your heart set on exposed brick walls or a rustic timber feature wall? Wallpaper is an inexpensive and efficient way to update your home and achieve your desired effect. Selecting the right wallpaper  for your project can make a small room appear larger or turn a rustic home into a Hamptons haven. Modern wallpapers are available in a range of materials, patterns, colours and even textures. Choose a product that can be made to measure and is easy to apply. Talk to suppliers about what will work for you.
