Creating a beautiful outdoor living space is a great way to maximise your home’s potential, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature with family and friends. Recent interior trends, such as open-plan layouts and floor to ceiling windows, have encouraged the blurring of lines between indoor and outdoor spaces to make the home experience more fluid. Here’s our tips on how to break design boundaries for your garden, patio or terrace.
Comfortable and durable furniture is a must-have when it comes to enjoying outdoor living. With various furniture shapes, styles and colours to choose from, it’s easier than ever to create the space of your dreams and embrace a style that represents your personality, whilst giving you a restful place to enjoy with loved ones. Outdoor sofa suites are just one example of styles that are influenced by inside trends.

Being outside makes us feel great, so why should we only utilise outdoor areas during the warmer months of spring and summer? With well thought-out accessories and planning, it’s possible to enjoy your garden, patio or terrace all year round. In the colder autumn and winter months, try draping warm fabrics over chairs for a chic yet practical style.

Just as within the home, an outdoor piece of furniture can be styled in many different ways, depending on where it is placed and how it is accessorised. For a diverse, striking setting you might juxtapose styles, or you can use harmonious pieces for a more coherent and minimalist feel. Using both straight and curved lines can also create an enduring contrast. Choosing furniture and state-of-the-art materials that can be used both indoors and outdoors is a great way to stay flexible with your home design.

Bring Nature Inside
Bring the outdoors in by using natural materials throughout your home. Today, there are plenty of materials to consider; wood, wicker, rattan, bamboo, linen, cotton, coated aluminium and natural stone – to name just a few. Using a mixture of these natural materials inside and out will blend the boundaries, whilst supporting sustainable living.
