Make the most of your garden or terrace this Summer by creating an outdoor living room. An obvious extension of the house, garden rooms are all the rage and are the perfect space for relaxing and entertaining. Something as simple as updating your accessories can give you a real lift and create lovely holiday vibes!

Long, luxurious evenings entertaining friends, lazy days lying around on the lawn, firepits, barbecues, card games and star gazing – turn your thoughts to garden rooms and staycations!

Consider the major elements of your outdoor living room such as big pieces of furniture, a barbecue (built-in?), colour scheme, awning or parasol, dining table or low coffee table, where the sun rises and sets and the desired view which will determine your seating area. Once you’ve got this sorted, you can turn your thoughts to accessories.

Whether you’re looking to create a chic Hamptons-style look, a Greek scheme of cool white and indigo or colourful and patterned bohemian Ibiza vibes, we’ve got some super stylish, high quality products that will transform your Summer experience.

Outdoor Lighting

Nothing creates an atmosphere like lighting and we’ve got a great selection of outdoor lighting options to see you through the Summer.

Our Solar Lanterns have been an instant hit with their Moroccan punched waterproof paper. They can be hung from a tree or parasol or used with a stand for your tabletop. Available in Coral Pink (taller egg shape), Daffodil Yellow or Teal(round) they make a style statement in any setting. Leave them solar charging by day to create a warm, mellow glow by evening.

Faux Flowers

Give your table a Mexican flavour with our faux aloe plant and fun cacti! They will always be verdant and lush without even trying! Our aloe is a decent size (63cm x 63cm) so it could take centre stage on your dining table or play a lead role in your outdoor room alongside two shapes of cacti to take you all the way to the desert!

Top Tip to make your outdoor room feel bigger: plant BIG plants! The scale of large, exotic plants conversely makes the whole space feel indulgent and much bigger than it actually is.
