As the vibrant seasons of spring and summer arrive, it traditionally means more listings and more sales.
And to help your vendors achieve the best results possible, you’ll want to ensure each property’s outdoor areas are up to scratch.
Australian’s love outdoor living and Vault Interiors Justine Wilson knows exactly how to create an inviting outdoor haven that’s perfect for relaxation and entertaining.
Embrace natural elements
Justine suggests incorporating natural materials such as wood, stone, and rattan in your outdoor furniture and decor.
These materials not only provide a timeless aesthetic but also harmonise with the natural surroundings, creating a serene atmosphere.
Consider wooden deck chairs, stone tabletops, or rattan seating to infuse warmth and authenticity into your outdoor oasis.
Play with colour
Inject life into your outdoor spaces by introducing vibrant, nature-inspired colours.
Justine recommends using colourful cushions, throws, and outdoor rugs to add personality and flair.
Opt for shades like ocean blues, leafy greens, and sun-kissed yellows to evoke the feeling of summer all year round.
Or even up-cycle outdoor furniture by painting old items that need a refresh.
Cosy seating arrangements
“Creating intimate seating arrangements is key to a welcoming outdoor space,” Justine says.
Arrange your outdoor furniture in conversation-friendly groupings to encourage social interaction and relaxation.
Consider investing in plush outdoor cushions and weather-resistant fabrics for both comfort and durability.
Illuminate with lighting
Outdoor lighting can transform your space from day to night.
Justine advises using a mix of lighting sources, including string lights, lanterns, and wall sconces, to create a cosy ambiance.
Lighting not only adds a touch of magic but also extends the usability of your outdoor area into the evening hours.
Greenery and plant life
“Plants are the ultimate outdoor styling tool,” Justine notes.
Incorporate lush greenery through potted plants, hanging baskets, and vertical gardens.
Not only do plants provide visual appeal, but they also purify the air and create a sense of tranquillity.
Consider low-maintenance varieties for hassle-free upkeep.
“These outdoor styling tips perfectly encapsulate the essence of spring and summer – the seasons of rejuvenation and outdoor living,” Justine says.
“These tips are not just about aesthetics; they are about transforming outdoor spaces into functional, inviting retreats that families and friends can enjoy together.”
