Alfresco Dining

Step out of your door and into the best restaurant in the neighbourhood with an inviting and oh-so-stylish outdoor dining area. One of the most favourable garden trends of late is entertaining in the garden, however, the humble barbecue is no longer enough for the outdoor dinner party host. With a surge in approval and John Lewis models flying off the shelves, gourmet home smoking is the new social barbie.


Mindful Moments

We’re constantly being reminded to practice mindfulness these days so why not transform your back garden into a calming tranquil space. With an emphasis on being present in the moment, mindfulness is certainly influencing garden trends this year. Focus on stimulating the senses with healing lavender, therapeutic water features and energising blue and yellow hues.


Bring the Indoors Out

Now that the weather is warming up again there is no better time to create an extension of your homes interior living space. Accessorise your outdoor furniture with sleek soft furnishings in a statement pastel colour. Potted plants, lanterns and botanical print cushions also work to carry the indoors out and will enhance your outside space this Summer.


Scandi Glamour

If you’re not familiar with Scandi glamour, it’s a monochrome colour scheme that makes outdoor greenery and plant life pop. Contemporary black adds a touch of glamour whilst a palette of white and grey brings an element of cool. Accessorise your cosmopolitan Scandi garden with inky planters, lanterns and even dramatic fire pits.
