How to Create the Ultimate Summer Backyard

November 7 2018

If you’re anything like the team here at Luxe Walls, you’re well and truly ready for summer fun. Your wardrobe is packed with party prints, your kitchen is stocked up with fresh fruits, and your fridge is bursting with drinks ready to be served. But is your backyard ready for all the summer fun? If the answer is no, don’t sweat it – you can turn your backyard into the ultimate summer escape in a few steps.

DIY Lighting

You don’t need a pergola or lighting rig to create atmospheric lighting. String patio lighting on garden planters and wood posts to light up your backyards walkways. Fairy lights strung up through your hedges will highlight the darker corners of your yard.

Create Shade with a Vertical Garden

Obviously we love the sunshine, but if you want to add an element of privacy and shade, a vertical garden is perfect. Hang mesh pockets between the posts of your pergola and fill them with your favourite herbs, creating an organic connection between your decor and dinner.

Light It Up with Wallpaper

Let your walls come to life with joyful summer energy. Choose a removable wallpaper print, like one of our trending floral styles or Japanese inspired prints, and turn your kitchen splashback or your dining room into an eye-catching wall mural.

Create an Outdoor Lounge Room

A bit of structure can change an outdoor lounge from standard backyard furnishing into a deluxe seating area. Frame your lounge, tables and chairs with a gazebo to create a cozy space perfect for afternoon relaxing & late night chats.
