Summer Entertaining In Style

A defining feature of a ‘summer home’ is its seamless blend between indoor and outdoor areas, whereas in contrast, some homes are more suited to selling in winter, featuring cosy indoor fireplaces, sumptuous retreats and nooks.

Indoor-outdoor entertaining is synonymous with the quintessential Australian summer. Some homes we sell are definitively what we might term ‘summer homes’, that is, homes we recommend as best sold during the summer months that might feature a fantastic pool, exquisite landscaping or resort-style entertaining spaces. A defining feature of a ‘summer home’ is its seamless blend between indoor and outdoor areas, whereas in contrast, some homes are more suited to selling in winter, featuring cosy indoor fireplaces, sumptuous retreats and nooks. Here we consider what’s on offer in the way of local and international inspiration to help transform an indoor or outdoor space into an inviting summer haven.

Statement pieces are an essential element to summer dining and we adore Domo’s dramatic stainless-steel ‘Braveheart’ ice bucket. Exuding elegance and style and reminiscent of old-fashioned flair, it sets the tone for refined entertaining as well as serving its function to keep drinks chilled on those warm summer nights.

Bespoke private wine buying and cellar management service, Stocked Cellar, provides a personal sommelier service where every bottle is specifically chosen based on an in-depth understanding of the client’s tastes, budgets and interests. Always available to restock when required, owner Josh James ensures his clients retain an unrivalled assemblage of impressive wines.

Ideal for serving breads, antipasti and canapes, we like the simplicity and practicality of a rustic style natural wood board. Considered and purposeful, the round and rectangular designs of the Acacia Wood Board collection available from The Design Edit, serve a multipurpose function of complementing the preparation of and presentation of gourmet cuisine.

Soft furnishings enliven a space, adding depth, colour and individuality. With their trademark designs and bold iconic patterns, Marimekko’s vibrant tablecloths are a luxurious way to inject style and personality into your outdoor table setting.

Boasting style, comfort and the essence of summer living, the Manutti River Sofa’s low design and deep seating is a picture of elegance and leisure. Exclusively produced in Belgium, the Manutti passion for crafting luxurious outdoor furniture is unparalleled, supported by a holistic approach and insatiable creative curiosity.

Customisable with an array of colour and fabric options to accommodate your desires and blend with an existing palette, the one and three seater range effortlessly creates a fusion of indoor-outdoor relaxed living.

The festive season is fast approaching and many Melbourne families will plan to enjoy the best of Australian summer with friends and family, whether at home, at the beach or overseas. We wish you all the best for a rejuvenating summer break and celebration season.
