Shelley shares with us how she transformed her outdoor space to create the perfect outdoor oasis.
Outdoor living in New Zealand has evolved over time, with many now embracing their outdoor spaces beyond just its practical needs – and instead, creating a well-designed space that has become an extension beyond the four walls of their home. New Zealand’s year-round temperate climate means we are beginning to see a trend of creating outdoor spaces that mirror our interior living environment.
Shelley has built an outdoor oasis at her home in Auckland. Designing her outdoor space in the same way as an interior room, utilising many of King Living’s latest outdoor collection.
To create a holiday feel at home, Shelley chose the Zaza Outdoor sofa for its streamlined, Palm Springs inspired design. With Auckland’s proximity to the coast, the Sunbrella® textile on the Zaza is not only weather-resistant with high-UV resistance, but also perfect for Shelley’s two young boys.
The introduction of the outdoor version of the iconic Luna Chair designed by Charles Wilson is an elegant way to enhance your outdoor living space. To avoid using two large sofas and to create a flexible outdoor space, Shelley placed two Luna Outdoor Chairs by her pool.
Shelley added the Crescent Outdoor Ottoman to complete the look of her outdoor living space. The organic and gentle curves of the Crescent add a soft touch as well as providing extra seating for guests when entertaining outdoors.
