August 22nd, 2008
Refusing to acknowledge that it’s nearly the end of the summer and given that August really didn’t feel like it, I’m continuing to do research on outdoor spaces (in view of renovating my own at some point!) and have found tons of inspiration both off and online. The below rooms (from dominomag.com) are really gorgeous and so easy to replicate I thought I’d share them with you…
The rustic chairs and pergola combined here with simple pastel cushions give this garden a cosy, Mediterranean flair. To achieve a similar effect, try our Usha cushion, or our Antiqued white lantern!
This daybed and hammock provide a great retreat for reading and relaxing whilst the beautiful floor lantern not only gives that all-important lighting in the evening but also adds an exotic touch to the room and seems to bring the whole scheme together.
Colour rules in this patio – I love the combination of bright blue, yellow and lime green… The colours really seem to blend in perfectly with the plants at the back. And the cushions scattered on the sofa look very much like our own Cuba cushions! The owners have also been quite clever with their lighting effect, opting for a fire and lots of lanterns and candles instead of proper lights, really helping to create a romantic mood.
In fact, I have concluded that the simple trick to a perfect outdoor space is luscious planting, comfortable furniture, bright textiles and romantic lighting.
