Beautiful outdoor spaces

Gorgeous sunny outdoor inspiration for Friday...sitting looking out the window of my office at the beautiful sunshine here in Brisbane this morning. I love outdoor spaces and rooms which can be used for relaxing and entertaining.

I love the pop of colour that these Kathryn Ireland outdoor fabrics give to this pool space. Kathryn Ireland fabrics are just one of our great fabric ranges available at Oliveaux.

I can imagine having lunch here at this table...
I love the old stone and the view beyond the arch is amazing!

Hope you all have a great Friday as we start thinking about the weekend...Ax

These are be-a-u-tiful. Inspiring and I'm a tad bit jealous of these owners!

I love that shot of the dining table in the stone building! What a lovely place to linger.

Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy your sunshine. We are going to be snuggled up with roaring fires all weekend at our house, the cold has settled into Melbourne suddenly.

It has been the most gorgeous day - shame I couldn't have spent it in one of these peaceful outdoor locations instead of inside working!

It's great to see outdoor spaces being used so well. The chair designs used really suite the surroundings!

These pictures remind me of Europe. The old walls and plants, outside casual sitting area with windows open and the doors. Cute bench also. I love it!
