Bring the warmth

We're talking throws, cushions and rugs. These add so much texture and cosiness to a space, and using organic materials helps to combat that cold outdoorsy feeling. Find the latest throw and blanket arrivals from Country Road and David Jones.

A textured knit cushion is another perfect winter addition and will transform a cold chair or bench into a cosy winter oasis. Find the latest cushion arrivals from Coco Republic and Farmers.

Inject some colour

A seamless way to add a homely and cosy touch to your outdoor space is complementing your furnishings with colour, plants, artwork and table ornaments. Elevate your existing plants with plant stands. Style them individually or in groups, using complementing or contrasting pots, adding character, colour and height to your space. Transform blank or tired walls by adding fun and bright outdoor art pieces - find new arrivals at Flo's Home and Bed Bath 'n Table.

A simple textured table cloth is the perfect way to create an intimate and inviting setting for your guests. Set it with candles, platters and vases of different heights and different textures. You can never go wrong with a great table setting from David Jones, Le Creuset and Farmers.
