Entertaining in Style

There’s nothing I look forward to more at the end of winter and that’s knowing those warm, breezy summer days are not too far away! Of course, summers outside are what Australian life is all about so having a gorgeous, and comfortable, outdoor setting is a must in my opinion. For me, the importance of a comfortable, stylish and elegant outdoor dining setting can not be underestimated. Given us Aussies spend almost half of the year outside entertaining, a great outdoor dining setting should be as important as an indoor one.

I absolutely love this indoor / outdoor dining space below from one of the Black Barn Retreats in New Zealand. The muted rusty tones contrasted against the black timber siding and white woodwork make this a truly chic and classically modern entertaining space.

I also really love the industrial / rustic style table with the beautiful cane dining chairs. With dining chairs like these, you can sit back, relax and really enjoy yourself (as a host or a guest), as comfort plays an enormous part in entertaining. How many times have you been to a friends dinner party and felt like you had to get up and walk around after an hour or so because the chairs were so uncomfortable? Guests will happily linger for hours over a table full of food and good wine with these chairs!
I love this outdoor space and how beautifully the chairs work with the stone table. So very chic – it just makes me want to sit down in one of those comfy chairs with a glass of wine and a magazine.
I adore this under cover outdoor dining space. I especially love how these chairs fade to a gorgeous soft grey if left in the sun.
The perfect chairs for a stylish and comfortable dining area. Mi Casa

Now if only this view came with these chairs!!
