Bits and Pieces to Make Any Outdoor Setting Spring to Life


Little Highlights

When renovating your garden, you may opt for potted plants which you can spread around your outdoor area with ease. These hanging planters are made of high-fibre coloured porcelain and are a great way to house your plants in style without using up any floor space. They are available in a range of colours so you can alternate for a mix-match look. | RRP: $89


Just Hanging

This Domo Dedon hanging nest rest might just be what dreams are made of. Create a little nook of heaven in your garden by either hanging it from a tree or sitting it on a base which you can buy from Domo separately. Relaxing in the shade while spring rolls in never looked so good. | RRP: POA


Tuning Out

No outdoor area is complete without some form of entertainment and nothing sets the scene quite like a bit of background music. This Bluetooth speaker is perfect for the outdoors because it wirelessly streams music from any Bluetooth enabled device, meaning you can hook up your music without the clutter or fear of damaging devices while sitting them outside. It’s made of durable silicon so is sturdy enough for the garden and comes in a range of colours to suit your style. | RRP: $110


Lounging About

This little number is an ideal answer to prayers for the perfect lounger for a newly spruced up garden. Its neutral tones allow it to blend well into any design you have chosen for your outdoor area, while adding luxury and comfort for chilled out days in the sun. | RRP: POA


Just Cooking

Make your outdoor barbeque area even more beautiful, original and practical with the Ronda Outdoor Kitchen components. The Ronda range guarantees protection against the external elements such as temperature and bacterial agents thanks to the quality of the stainless steel. It is easy to use plus it is dust, insect and waterproof and totally hygienic thanks to its insulating shell. POA


Light My Fire

No outdoor setting would be complete without some form of wood burning feature. Even though it’s spring, we still need a source of heat when enjoying the outdoors and what is better than kicking back and lounging in front of a fire? This fireplace by Buschbeck also doubles up as a pizza oven or BBQ when using the optional accessories, making it the ultimate combination of convenience and luxury. | RRP: $2,399



Vintage lighting has made a strong come back in both the house and garden recently. This set from Green With Envy is available in both 10 metres and 20 metres in length and can be hung along a fence, wrapped around trees or even within a marquee or canopy for the perfect party atmosphere. | RRP: $139 for 10m, $270 for 20m
