Recreate a Balinese-style outdoor room

Outdoor rooms expand your living spaces and add value to your home. Create a tropical, Balinese style look with these handy hints


Lots of pretty lights sets against a simple, clean backdrop (painted in Resene ‘All Black’ create ambience and interest at eye level, and create a striking entertaining area at night.


Just imagine kicking back in this chair (from Freedom) with some summery cocktails on a warm evening! To achieve a peaceful feel in your outdoor room, use a monochromatic colour scheme as a base. Bring in different shades of green as an accent colour and use plenty of textured plants.


Coconut shell lanterns add an organic feel and soften the clean lines. Create a striking look by adding graphic prints, like the towel from Indie Home Collective and the black and white cushion from Coast New Zealand. Soften the look with elements of nature – crushed shells make an ideal floorcovering.
