When choosing cushion covers that you intend to use outdoors, you want to know they will endure the harsh Australian Summer sun, wind, rain, mildew and dirt.

Discover the 3 key things you need to know to get GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY when choosing outdoor soft furnishings. 

Watch the short video below.

Don’t buy cheap cushions that will fade and fall apart in a few months. They will cost you money! Go for something made specifically for the outdoors and know that they’ll LAST FOR YEARS.

* Beach Abode Living outdoor cushions have been made using HIGH GRADE 100% POLYESTER. Natural fibres such as cotton are not as durable as polyester and tend to absorb moisture, dirt and odours and will deteriorate if left outdoors.

* The polyester fabric used in Beach Abode Living outdoor cushions is SOFT TO THE TOUCH and very comfortable to lean against, but you can be assured it is tough and durable and can withstand full sun and rain.

* 100% Clean Polyester filling inserts are used for all Beach Abode Living cushions as they are allergy free, odourless, and washable.

* Heavy duty plastic zipper sliders have been chosen instead of metal sliders which can rust over time

* Clever reversible design is like having two cushions in one.

* Attention to detail including stylish contrast piping just adds a touch of class to your outdoor decorating.

Top 6 White Paints For Your Beach House

Whether you are repainting a single room, doing up a cosy beach shack or building a modern 3 story mansion, the right colours are key to creating the perfect beach style room or to turning your home into a beachhouse…

You don’t have to live near the beach to bring a little of the relaxed beach vibe into your home.

Ultimate white beach house?

Awesome whites

Yes, we all know the typical beach house has white walls, white floorboards and white ceilings right? Well yeah, but you can bend the rules a little bit. No doubt white is the colour that comes to mind when you think internal walls in beach houses however, nowadays there are so many different colour options and better paint technology so how do you know which white is right?

First step…

Well, first I recommend looking at lots and lots of magazines with images of rooms that tell you what colours they are painted so you can get an idea of what your home will look like too. If you like a friend’s wall colour ask them what it is and write it down. Then grab a whole lot of paint chips (They’re the small cards you can pick up free at your hardware store in the paint section) and take them home and compare with your room, furnishings etc. Once you’ve eliminated the ones that don’t seem quite right, you should be down to about 3-6.

The next step…

is to get some small sample tins of paint and create a swatch directly on your wall. You want to make sure the paint is right for the light in your room, so make sure you paint them about 50cm x 50cm, do a coupe of coats and let them dry. Keep painting swatches til you’re happy with the colour you’ve chosen.

What we used…

We painted the internal walls of our first beach house Hog Bristle Quarter with some feature walls in Hog Bristle Half and the trim in Antique white. Someone at the hardware store told me that hog Bristle is one of the most popular paint colours & I reckon whether you have a beach style home or not, you’ll love it!

If you’re planning on a re-paint inside or out at your place, then here are our top 6 picks from Dulux. Check them out for your self by clicking on the ‘Whites Colour Booklet’ on the right >

 

Pick 1 – Dulux Hog Bristle (was used in the hallway wall, dividing walls and pillar in the picture below)

Pick 2 – Dulux Antique White USA (walls, ceiling, trim)

 

Pick 3 – Dulux Lexicon Quarter (was used on the walls in the picture below)

Pick 4 – Dulux Lexicon (Fascia)

 

Pick 5 – Dulux – Stowe White (was used on the walls and ceiling in the picture below)

Pick 6 – Dulux – Sandy Day Half (hallway)

 

- Dulux – Bone White (was used on the bulk head and pillar in the picture below)

 

So if your home looks a bit like this …
