This week's outdoor decor and styling picks are all the inspiration you need to nail the art of bringing interiors, out.
Whilst 2020 has been the year of staying in, the new decade has hammered home our love and gratitude for our outdoor spaces, both big and small! The myriad of benefits a slice of mother nature can bring is truly second to none, so whether you’re blessed with a grassy sanctuary, some colourful planters or even a slither of sunshine on a small but well-loved balcony, this week’s outdoor decor and styling picks are all the inspiration you need to nail the art of bringing interiors, out.
If you need us, we’ll be reclining with a book and glass of Pimms for the foreseeable.
I may not have my own garden yet but my very limited outdoor space has made me so excited for the days I can sit in the sun and read to my heart’s content! I love the idea of pops of colour through furniture and accessories as well as plants, and am all about continuing the vibe and style of my interiors decor, outdoors. I also kind of want a fire pit just so I feel like I’m on Love Island.
I’ve gone for this really simple chic black and rattan selection from B&Q as I think it’s quite timeless, easy to clean, and you can mix and match your accessories each year to give it a different vibe. Obviously natural, woven fabrics are all the rage at the moment and this Yucca cushion set from Anthropologie are gorgeous. I really like the outdoor rug trend and this one is a STEAL at £25, see ya later grass rash. I’ve also picked out a couple of lush things from The White Company, to make your garden space truly Instaworthy.
I don’t currently have my own garden and when I do, it will more than likely be a small balcony than an actual garden. So, I’ve taken to my Pinterest saved for Inspo. I love the idea of having a little chair and table set to have my morning coffee on. I also am loving outdoor rugs, who knew that was a thing?! I think some outdoor lights on a balcony really make the space cosy in evenings too. Lastly, I’d have a big plant (which would probably take up most of the room), because no space is complete without some greenery!
With summer well and truly on our doorstep, I’ve loved tinkering around in my garden to create the perfect outdoor lounging space. A trend I’ve loved this year is a reverse on the typical “bring the outside in” and I’m loving “bringing the inside out”. Using things like raised planters, outdoor rugs, side and coffee tables and beautiful glass lanterns good enough for your living room to create the perfect relaxing setup, but outside! I love mixing it up with different cushions, throws and even outdoor lamps.
We don’t have a garden at the moment but that won’t stop me dreaming up the perfect outdoor space for our future home. I’d love to create a laid back garden nook reminiscent of a boutique hotel, with bay trees, bamboo lanterns and lots of texture. Plant me here forever with a good book and I’ll be bloody happy!
I am so excited to have a garden of my own one day and although I’ve not been buying anything as it will be a good year before we can use any of it I’ve been eyeing up a few items that I think will really help make our patio/garden look really great. First on my list will be an amazing swing chair, I feel like they’re really having a moment and I’ve become obsessed!
