Two weeks from now and it’s officially winter here in Australia. Cold days, chilly nights are just some adjectives that best describe winter. But since we live in Sydney, we do not experience blizzard here. We have to drive for at least 6 hours to go to snowy mountain to do tobogganing or skiing. This means that enjoying the outdoors during winter is still possible. Yes, I do believe that outdoor space can still be appreciated to the fullest with your family and friends as long as we keep ourselves warm by
1. Placing some heating elements outside to combat the low temperature and make your guests comfortable
source ( Place gas heaters or heat lamps where you will eat and drink )
source ( Place candles on the floors not just to light the way but to add warmth)
source ( Here down under, we do not need to store away our cushions during winter since we are not expecting any snow. So, lots of cushion can be a trick to keep us warm especially if the fabric is right
source ( If there is a chance, you can place some curtains to add style and to control the wind which can really be very cold )
There you go, let not winter stop you from being in touch with nature or enjoying your outdoor space. As they say, “if there’s a will, there’s a way”.
Next time, I will show you our outdoor space during winter.
