Perhaps the greatest home lifestyle trend of the last ten years has been outdoor living and the moving of our indoor living, cooking and entertaining areas to our covered outdoor areas... despite our often less-than-ideal weather for it!
The trend continues in 2011/2012 as we approach summer with outdoor furniture sales continue to look upwards as we clear out our winter clutter and make way for more barbeques, more outdoor meals and a lot more time watching the cricket on our patios or just relaxing by our pools (now we've cleaned them up a little...)
One of the most popular looks this year is the faux-wicker Balinese-styled outdoor living room with triple-seater lounge, single seater chairs, ottomans and coffee tables to match.

Inspired by trips to one of Australia's favourite overseas playgrounds, this look is 100% resort-inspired and the plastic wicker stands up to even the roughest weather. Most settings are sun-guarded and the cushions are mold-treated inside and out with removable and washable covers that can be mixed and matched to suit your decor.
Teamed up with potted plants, ceramic outdoor art and even a complete outdoor kitchen (I know, we're dreaming of having that kind of money...) you can start building your dream outdoor entertainment area to look like something out of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous.
See your local outdoor furniture, discount variety and discount department stores for an abundance of styles and fashionable looks this weekend!
