A wood burning stove and simple rattan garden furniture set are all that is needed to create a smart and sophisticated outdoor dining nook, perfect for evening and weekend entertaining.
Create a Summer living space with tropical prints, an eclectic assortment of furniture and plenty of comfy cushions.
Stick to hardy plants that will look great all year round, for a lush, easy to maintain garden.
Fit for a feast
If your dining room is a tad on the small side, consider your garden an extension, and create a colourful and welcoming area in which to feast with friends.
If you’re lucky enough to have an American-style porch, make the most of it – what could be better than sitting out on a Summer’s evening with a cold drink in hand? A couple of comfy chairs and some blankets are all you need to create a cosy setting.
On the level
Adding different levels to a cramped patio via shelves is a smart use of space and a great way of showing off your plants.
An outdoor space provides a fantastic opportunity to experiment with bold colours, and a splash of paint makes this courtyard garden feel more like a room – with the help of some bright, tropical-print cushions and boho accessories.
