Holiday in your own garden: how to style your outdoor space
This spring, outdoors is the new indoors. Here, you can safely get together with your family, friends or neighbours with plenty of social distance, or you can simply soak up some sun, fresh air and green surroundings to lift your mood. Finding it hard to resist the call of the comfy couch? Then it's time to take care of your outdoor space. These 3 tips will help you to create an irresistible outdoor oasis in no time.
A cosy inside feeling, outside
Whether you have a small balcony or a large back yard, your outdoor space is going to be just as important as your living room this year. You can use it to have select people over for socially-distanced coffee, or to escape your home office for a little bit. Create a relaxing place by turning your garden or terrace into an extension of your living room. Go for a cosy outdoor rug, a comfortable bench or garden armchair, and versatile side tables suited for both indoor and outdoor use.
If you have a lot of space, you can even set up separate areas: a reading corner to enjoy some me-time in a sun lounger, with your favourite books sitting on a handy garden pouf next to you, and a dining area for the whole family with a set of colourful patio chairs.
Go for a little extra
For this year's staycation, why not splurge on the all-in experience? Create the ultimate holiday feeling with a luxurious lounger with lots of cushions, atmospheric outdoor lighting – from durable LED lights for your parasol to rustic lanterns scattered around your patio – and a refreshing Ode gin & tonic in your hand. Ready, set, relax.
Keep it natural
From rattan chairs to terracotta plant holders, natural materials bring tranquillity to both indoor and outdoor decors. Combine them with lots of plants and soft fabrics for a soothing effect. Want to add more colour? Then choose bold textiles such as our tablecloth in Moroccan blue cotton or summer plaids in ochre linen.
