Striped picnic blankets and cushions

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.

I’m not one for bright colours and florals so it’s wonderful to find garden accessories in cool monochrome designs. After all, black and white goes so well with the green of the grass and the natural flowers why try to compete with nature?

These are all from Nordic House and, for those of you of a brighter disposition than me, the cushions also come in blue and yellow. Roll on Summer.
