What a lovely week or so we have been having. I don't know about you but these light nights are making me want to get the garden ship shape and ready for lazy evenings in the sun.

I've been pinning a few photos to one of our Pinterest boards called 'Outside Space' and looking for inspiration for our own garden. There are some really great ideas on Pinterest. Here are a few of my favourites.

I just love the simplicity of the decked area above. It just goes to show you really don't need that much space to create something that not only looks great but is really usable too.

How cool is this dining area. (above) not only have they created a really lovely eating area but they have a cosy intimate covered area too perfect for when the rain starts. The painted grey wood really stands out against the red of the pendant light and accessories. Personally I would of gone for a white pendant light or something more industrial to keep it really neutral, but that's just me!

Different types of wood work really good together. I like how the old reclaimed table sits against the new wood fencing to create something both modern and traditional at the same time. Adding the festoon lights, tealights, cushions and blankets make it a place for entertaining even after the sun goes down!

Steal the look by adding -

Festoon Cafe lights £39.95

Distressed Can Star Lantern £6.95 

Mustard Aztec Cushion £22

Tolix Style Metal Bench £225


See you soon
