Bring a slice of the Med to your back garden with a laid-back combo of Ibizan-inspired furniture and accessories. We’re talking hand-woven rattan, natural wood-based design and seagrass accessories for a relaxed White Isle vibe.
There’s nothing better than dining alfresco in your back garden with friends and family and catching that last dose of sunshine. As the weather starts to heat up and the days get longer, it’s time to enjoy the outdoors for as long as possible and bring back Ibizan sunshine. So we’ve rounded up what you should incorporate into your garden to achieve that laid-back Mediterranean feel…
TIP 1: CREATE A SENSORY SEATING AREA
While we may not get sunshine 365 days of the year, we still treasure those summer BBQs and entertaining in the garden. It’s the heart of long-standing family traditions – sharing food with loved ones and relaxing outdoors with friends. Create an informal seating area with natural furniture and woven rattan chairs for the upmost comfort, and style.
TIP 2: MAKE THE DAYS LONGER
Just because the sun’s gone in, doesn’t mean we have to as well. Mediterranean living is all about enjoying your garden for as long as possible, whether that’s opening a bottle of wine or eating late. Add an elegant garden lighting scheme to your back garden with fairy lights, lanterns and candles and watch the atmospheric lighting glow as the stars come out to play.
TIP 3: CREATE AN OASIS OF GREENERY
Plants are the second most important aspect in creating an Ibizan garden. Flowering plants and greenery is a great combination that works well together to give your garden that cohesive effect. Small garden? Don’t worry. Plant your favourite flowers into colourful pots and planters and watch your garden come to life.
TIP 4: ADD MEDITERRANEAN PRINTS
Reminiscent of mosaic, coloured tiles, adding decorative prints will add a burst of colour into your garden. For a relaxed look, opt for adding cushions onto your rattan furniture for a cosy vibe.
TIP 5: DINE ‘AL FRESCO’
Dining outside wouldn’t be complete without the perfect tableware to complement your table. Make the most of the British summer with al-fresco tableware and serveware that’s both colourful and relaxing.
Follow these simple tricks and you’ll be the hostess with mostess at all summer soirees. Who says you need to hop on a plane to enjoy dining al-fresco?SHOP GARDEN FURNITURE » SHOP GARDEN DINING »
