The Outdoor Edit – everything you need for stylish outdoor living this summer 

Nothing beats the British Summertime – strawberries and cream, post-work aperol’s and that heady scent of a garden full of roses in bloom.

Make the most of the outdoors at this time of year, and no matter how big or small your space, a few chic accessories really help to make outside an extension of your inside space – which is exactly how you should approach styling your garden.

In fact, garden decor has never been as big as it is now, and the pandemic has taught us all to make the most of any outside space – even a balcony is big enough for some pretty pots filled with flowers.

with an aesthetic that revolves around stylish yet laidback interiors, we’ve got your Summer outdoor essentials covered

   

Terracotta Pots are so stylish right now, and the more aged they are, the better. Our Rustic Terracotta Pot  looks so chic planted up with fresh herbs or geraniums. Available in two sizes.

 

Add height with  Seville Candlesticks. Tall and rustic, their weathered finish makes them look as if they’ve always been in your garden. Perfect for a candlelit glow on a warm Summer’s evening.

pay attention to detail when setting the table for a striking display

             

Set a place at the table with the White Rattan Charger Plate which suits quick evening suppers or bigger dinner parties. They look great paired with a pretty cotton napkin and a Mango Wood Napkin Ring

Scent the scene with candles, gently flickering as day falls into night and wafting a beautiful scent. The St Eval Lavender Potted Candle‘s fit nicely with the outdoorsy vibe and if bugs are a pest, St Eval Citronella Tealights will help to keep them at bay.

                  

Transfer your interior style outside with some key rattan pieces you can use in different ways.

Trays can be used to serve drinks and nibbles, or act as a centrepiece on the table to display flowers and candles. Rattan is the perfect natural texture to create a fusion between inside and out.

We think our Small Natural Rattan Basket looks chic when used to hold napkins

No trip around the garden picking flowers and vegetables is complete without the Kubu Rattan Garden Trug.  Hand-woven in sturdy grey washed kubu rattan, this trug will hold all of your garden pickings. You could also line it with a napkin and use it as a bread basket.

There’s so much inspiration on the web when designing your perfect outdoor space. One of my favourite designers is Bunny Williams, who I think always gets it right. You can see her work here: https://bunnywilliams.com/interiors/

Veranda is also a huge area for inspiration. In fact, their coffee table books are some of the best you can get and offer hours of amazing homes and gardens to swoon over: https://www.veranda.com/outdoor-garden/
