5 Alfresco Trends To Enjoy All Year Round

There are many exciting things to look forward to when getting the keys to your new house – decorating bedrooms, stocking up a designer kitchen, filling bathrooms with luxurious soaps, and much more. While the inside of the home will probably demand all your attention to start, there’s one area of the home that you won’t want to forget – the alfresco.

This outdoor space is just as important as the inside and will add a whole other dimension of relaxation to your home. But instead of purchasing outdoor furniture aimlessly, why not give it a little more consideration and spruce the area up with a theme. New Edge Homes’ home designs feature alfresco areas that flow seamlessly from the inside to the outside, so try to tie in the feel of the home as best as you can with colours, textures and materials. If you’re not sure where to start, we have five trends that will inspire you to turn your backyard into a divine haven.


Why not bring a tropical holiday to your own home? With concrete statues, fountains and bamboo, your alfresco will be your new favourite spot. Keep the tones neutral with lush greens, greys and browns for a tranquil vibe. For furniture, opt for a day bed and large outdoor floor cushions so that you can truly relax with a good book and soak up the sun.


Europe, anyone? The Mediterranean theme is popular for always being on-trend and bold. Revel in this scheme by pairing deep blues with pops of bright yellow. Think large cobalt plant pots filled with citrus trees. Decorate an outdoor dining table with patterned tableware, placemats and fresh flowers.


If you consider yourself a free spirit, this one’s for you. Boho is all about soaking in culture and depicting your love for travel. Show it off on your alfresco with a brightly patterned outdoor rug, a hanging chair and candle holders. A low table and multiple pot plants with vibrant flowers will complete the look.


If simple and contemporary is more fitting for you, opt for a minimalist modern theme. Fill your alfresco with an outdoor lounge in monochrome tones, but keep the space cosy and interesting with a fire pit. This theme is a great opportunity for the tech-savvy to show off the latest in speakers and maybe even an outdoor screen projector! Sophisticated lighting will be the finishing touch.


A rustic alfresco theme is like an enchanted dream come true. Opt for timber furniture and lace the surroundings with fairy lights. You can’t go wrong with picking flowers for a rustic theme – think anything that is small, bright and belongs in a cottage. Decorate your outdoor table with glass bottles and candles to keep the space warm and inviting.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

Debbie & Brian - Jordan Springs 

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH. 

D.E, Marsden Park 

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
