We Australians are truly blessed to be living in such a beautiful land. Breathtaking scenery of sweeping golden shorelines, heaps of space, gorgeous fresh air (and long summer weather on the whole) brings with it significant lifestyle perks.
One of those benefits is the ability to dine outdoors for much of spring, summer and autumn... and for those in the know about designing their outdoor spaces - they really use it.
It might be a far stretch to say that outside is the new inside - but it would be an accurate observation to say that our outdoor spaces have become the 'dining rooms' of coastal Aussie homes. We're using our home outdoors for much more than the fabled Australian backyard. It's become a place for fine dining and upscale home entertainment on a grand scale.
