Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring – no matter the season there’s a reason to be outdoors. For some of us, our gardens are our pride and joy and for others, they are a forgotten, unused space. No matter which category you fall into, there’s no denying that, with a bit of tender love and care your outdoor space could be instantly transformed from its current state into your own personal Eden. Picture summers lounging in the sun, winters cozying up by a fire, springs smelling the flowers and autumn mornings sipping coffee watching the leaves change.
Outdoor lounges, dining sets, sun loungers, umbrellas, fire pits and fairy lights galore – your idyllic outdoor space is only a couple of purchases away. Check out our picks for the best outdoor furniture that will help you make the most of your garden all year round.
There’s nothing better than spending summer outdoors in the fresh air, bare feet in the grass and soaking up the sun. With daylight savings keeping it lighter for longer you’ll be able to make the most of long summer days and those iconic summer nights enjoying your outdoor space. So, what furniture purchases should you be looking into to before you make your outdoor space the place to be during summer months.
If you ask us it’s all about: sun umbrellas, sun loungers and lighting for those twilight summer drinks. From lanterns to fairy lights, tea lights to coloured lights – there are so many great summer lighting ideas that will allow your summer happy hour to last all night. Head here for some outdoor lighting design inspiration!
When the leaves begin to change colours, showing off their brilliant reds, oranges and golds we are reminded of the marvel of the natural world. Come Autumn you’ll want to be able to make the most of your outdoor space as the summer heat subsides and before the proper cold of winter sets in. We recommend investing in an outdoor lounge or a balcony set so that you can enjoy a morning coffee on your balcony, or curl up on an outdoor lounge with a good book.
It’s all about the fire pit! When the chill sets in, we tend to shy away from the outdoors in favour of cocooning on the couch under a bundle of blankets, mainlining hot chocolate and dreaming of the day spring rolls around and thaws us out again. However, if you make the leap and purchase a fire pit then you’ll be able to make the most of your outdoor space this winter the same way you would during warmer weather.
Inspiring memories of campfires and magical nights filled with excitement and childlike joy with a fire pit, the outdoors becomes inviting and exciting. You can practically taste the marshmallows already! If you’d like to make the leap from regular marshmallows to full-on ‘smores then you can check out these great recipes for gourmet ‘smores.
Spring is when the garden really comes to life. Seeing a garden come into bloom and watching bees buzz around fragrant flowers and watching sunflowers turn and salute the sun reminds you of the pure joys of being alive. In Spring your garden puts on its very best show and you’ll want to make sure you’re outside to enjoy it as much as possible.
So bring your meals outdoors for a spot of al fresco dining. You’ve got to eat and what spot could be more beautiful than your very own blossoming garden. Nothing makes a plate of delicious food taste better than beautiful surrounds. Get yourself an outdoor dining set and start hosting long lunches and outdoor dinners.
