How to choose a garden furniture style

With the arrival of the warm weather, comes longer days spent outside! Want to give your outdoor space a summer update? Choosing the best look for your outdoor space can be a tricky decision. From plants and decking, to furniture and decor, there are so many aspects to think about. We've picked three styles to help narrow down your outdoor aesthetic! Will you choose one or mix and match? Find the garden style perfect for your style, space and home with our handy guide!

Travel somewhere exotic from the comfort of your own home!

Ever been to somewhere tropical and wished you could re-create a similar setting in your own outdoor space? Bring the holiday home with an exotic-style garden. Choose statement outdoor pieces like a wicker hanging chair or a safari style sofa. Add pops of colour with vibrant printed cushions and soft furnishings. Balance out the bright colour with natural textures such as raffia, wicker or woods. And don’t forget the plants of course! Why not plant a palm tree or a big cactus, or create a mini jungle-style garden? And for the final touch that makes all the difference in the long, cool evenings add a fire pit for even more of a boho feel. Perfect!

Go sleek with modern style!

Fans of modern design and contemporary style don't need to shy away from garden design! Choose garden furniture with clean lines and neutral colours such as white, grey and black. A sleek garden sofa paired with a concrete side table, or a stylish garden bed would make the perfect statement. As for the textiles, go muted with simple geometric prints, or create a contrast with exotic patterns or seaside shades for your cushions, outdoor carpet or outdoor throws. If your style leans more towards a Scandinavian/ Nordic inspired palette, get hygge with plenty of candles to create a warm atmosphere, or cosy up around the fireside with an open firepit.

Lay out a terrace that makes you completely zen

For those small space dwellers seeking a moment of calm, a zen garden will work perfectly! Even if your terrace is in the middle of town, it’s still possible to create a little corner of paradise! To start, fill your space with greenery – real or fake! Arrange them on your terrace in pretty, large pots made of natural materials to make you feel like you're in the middle of nature – and not the city! Opt for a pretty garden furniture with soft colours, such as a fold out table and chairs, and if you have room, a hammock or hanging chair to read in peace. Home sweet home!
