How to Create an Inspiring View from your Outdoor Space

Bespoke Signarture Balmoral Artwork in Outdoor Setting

As the days grow longer and the holidays are in sight, it's time to start visualizing the summer months ahead relaxing or entertaining outdoors... 

Pull up a seat in your patio, courtyard, balcony or pool area. If your outdoor space is uncomfortable and less than inspiring, then it's time to take a look at the vast array of contemporary, weather proof furnishings that enable you to live as stylishly and comfortably outdoors as you do indoors.

One thing we all crave is an inspiring view. If you're lucky enough to enjoy an amazing view from your outdoor space, well, sit back and relax - the space won't need any further adornment. But if you live in an urban environment, and you feel hemmed in, then its time to re-evaluate the walls and utilise them best effect. 

Our treescape perspex art works can be used to create a view where there is none. The material is half the weight of glass, far less fragile, and the finished artworks have excellent weather resistance. Moreover, they come to life, taking on an extra dimension in an outdoor setting where the angle and intensity of the light is constantly changing, and interacts with the transparency of the medium to create shifting shadow-casting.

Whether you crave views of an intimate vista or a far horizon, of sunrise or sunset from your balcony, patio or pool area, these contemporary treescapes will reconnect you to nature and help create a space you'll love to spend time in this summer.

Outdoor Artwork for Patios, Courtyards, Balconies and Pool Areas

With the days growing longer and the holidays in sight, this is the time of year that we start to visualize the summer months ahead relaxing or entertaining outdoors. 

And our expectations of 'outdoor living' have changed dramatically over the last decade. No longer will a few aluminium folding chairs and a Weber barbecue suffice! With the advent of synthetic wicker, all-weather fabrics, outdoor lighting and indoor-outdoor carpets, you can now live as stylishly and comfortably outdoors as you do indoors.

To make the most of al fresco living, look at your patio, courtyard, balcony or pool area in the same way you might approach a room. You'll first need to consider:

  • flooring
  • lighting
  • colour
  • scale
  • furniture

But to create an outdoor room you're going to need more. Pattern and texture are key and, as with any indoor space, its the accessories and the artworks that you choose that transform bland and uninviting into something that expresses your personal style.

Metal artworks are a popular choice but if you're looking for something different, you might like to consider our perspex artworks

Perspex is a brand of acrylic glass, a material which is half the weight of actual glass, far less fragile, offers much greater UV resistance and is crystal clear.

To create the artworks we use inks that offer the optimum in UV resistance resulting in a finished product that has excellent weather resistance, and is unaffected by humidity in which other materials would corrode, warp or degrade.

We utilise the transparency of the medium to generate the stunning shadow-casting, and this takes on an extra dimension in an outdoor setting where the angle and intensity of the light is constantly shifting.

If your terrace, patio, courtyard, balcony or pool area is looking less than inviting, have a look through our perspex art collections and create a space you'll love to spend time in this summer.

Artwork for Outdoor Spaces

A spell of unseasonably warm weather is all it takes for most of us to start visualizing the summer months ahead relaxing or entertaining outdoors. 

Contemporary outdoor spaces, large or small, have become true extensions of our interior spaces, with an ever broader range of furnishing options to suit all tastes. As with any space, artworks are an effective means through which to transform the bland and unappealing into something that expresses your personal style

After the record breaking temperatures of the October long weekend just passed, we weren't surprised today to field several inquiries from clients asking about installing our signarture perspex artworks in courtyards and around pool areas.

In an outdoor setting our perspex art artworks really come to life as the changing angle of the sunlight adds an extra dimension to the shadow-casting.The effect will be different from sunrise through to sunset.

As much as we love the sun, particularly in areas of ozone depletion such as Australia, it isn't kind to our skin, or to printed or coloured materials of any sort. You'll be aware that even indoors behind glazing, if exposed to prolonged direct sunlight over a period of many years, your furnishings from timber flooring to upholstery will exhibit fading or degradation. 

Perspex is a thermoplastic acrylic glass that is UV stabilized - it doesn't yellow or craze like the plastics of old - and the inks we use offer the optimum in UV resistance. As well as being less fragile, and half the weight, perspex offers higher UV protection than glass. So those inks are even further protected.

For those of you living in the tropics, say in Far North Queensland, who get to enjoy your outdoor space year round, our perspex artworks are perfect. They remain completely unaffected by high humidity in which other materials would corrode, attract mold or warp. 

If your terrace, patio or balcony is looking less than inviting, have a look through our perspex art collections and create a space you'll love to spend time in this summer.
