Seletti Outdoor Shower

10th July 2014

I’ve given up trying to schedule posts to go with the weather, but it’s July, it’s officially summer and if it’s not hot today then it will be tomorrow. Maybe. Anyway, weather schmeather, this was just too much fun not to share. It’s a copper outdoor shower by Seletti and it costs £159. You just…

Zinc Planters from Cox and Cox

22nd June 2014

I am not one of life’s gardeners. However, I do like a nice garden to look at and now that it’s indisputably summer (the season if not the weather) it’s time to think about pretty things to put in it. I have always loved the zinc buckets that florists use to display their wares and…

Recycled Garden Furniture

white garden furniture from john lewis

There was a brief spell of sunny weather a couple of days ago. Did you see it? Did you sit in it more to the point. It seems to have gone again now but, in the hope that it will return I found this the other day and wanted to show it to you. It’s…

Outdoor Rugs

19th May 2014

So outdoor rugs. I have just always loved them. I think it’s the idea of having a proper outdoor sitting room – as in living in a climate that’s so gorgeous all the time that you can afford to have proper comfortable furniture outside. Because it won’t be constantly rained on. Basically I would like…

Buttoned Velvet Cushion

18th May 2014

Finally, dare we to hope that summer is on its way? Apparently we can’t officially call it summer yet as the bluebells are still out and they are the quintessential spring flower. But, technicalities aside, the sun is out, I can smell the neighbouring barbecues as I type and I have (steady) put my sandals…

It’s been nearly a week of sunshine (not that I’m counting or anything) and operation fantasy garden is in full swing. I’ve found the perfect elegant lounging chair, some great accessories for eating outside and now this gorgeous quilted picnic blanket and cool striped cushions.

Garden Lounge Chair

13th April 2014
metal lounge chair garden

I hardly dare think it, let alone write it, but perhaps, just perhaps it is time to think that summer might be around the corner. There is blue sky with fluffy white clouds, there is a yellow orb peeking shyly out from behind them and the lawn definitely needs mowing. This metal lounge chair is…

Mad About … Outdoor Living Rooms

15th July 2013

There is something almost unbearably romantic about an outdoor living room. Perhaps it is just the promise of a summer so long and hot that you don’t need to worry about the rain ruining the furniture. Perhaps it is simply that in the UK, the summers are neither long enough not dry enough to warrant…
