Winter alfresco seating inspiration

Winter alfresco seating inspiration

PS. This stunning cover image is from Bayon Gardens - it's one of their own creations.

There's nothing better than spending time outside, but even in our mild Australian winter it can be a little too chilly for that. Our traditional alfresco areas are open, airy, they catch a good breeze and are designed too cool, not to be cosy. 

However, our wonderful friends in the US take the cake when it comes to versatile living outside, so if you want to maximise your alfresco functionality, why not take a leaf out of their book and consider making it trans-seasonal. How you ask? With a beautiful brazier or fire pit (please check local council legality first!). 

Here are some of our favourites around that will help to inspire you - tell us, which do you love most?
