Whether it’s wandering in the woods, spending a day at the beach or basking in the sun on your patio, we understand that summer is all about getting outdoorsy. So, whilst we’re comfortable with the way our interior complements the season – let’s look at the top 4 reasons for moving our base outdoors…
Make your outdoor space an extension of your indoors – a backyard retreat if you like! How about a daybed with cushions, a throw blanket and a good book to get lost in? Or perhaps, one of the hanging chairs for your own personal sanctuary – with easy access to your favourite drinks and snacks (yes please!). Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor elements in your garden creates a perfect haven to kick back and relax in. Sounds like absolute bliss!
Up close with nature
Have you picnicked al fresco this summer yet? Summers and picnics are synonymous – a good old sarnie tastes SO much better when it’s consumed alongside a sumptuous spread on a lush green field! Picnics do require a bit of planning though – especially when it comes to ensuring the food and drinks stay chilled. Thankfully, we’ve thought of that – and our range of picnic bags with dedicated compartments, and glasses ensures neither convenience nor style is compromised.
An envious garden
No matter the size of your garden, there is always scope to beautify it through clever landscaping or plant potting! Visible greenery is good for our health, so invest in some planters and make the most of your outdoor space. We’re particularly fond of ladder styles for adding interest, and also lining the path with blossoming flowers will do wonders for the overall aesthetic (not to mention your Instagram grid!). From fragrant flowers and pots to ornamental lights, there are plenty ways to create the perfect al fresco hangout this summer.
Hands up who would have a BBQ every night if they could? It’s ideal for mastering some mouth-watering recipes and hosting friends and family. There’s just something so liberating about spending time outside in the evening, perhaps it’s because we spend 8 hours indoors all day. In order to maximise the time outside, invest in a heater to prevent reluctantly retiring indoors when it gets a bit chilly. For extra ambiance, scatter around some table top candles and lanterns, our favourite is this Oriana lantern.
We’re pretty sure we’ve given you every reason to spend more time outdoors… making your garden an enviable retreat is up to you though, so shop our Garden and Outdoor Furniture collections here.
