Enjoying the outdoors isn’t something that needs to be limited to those holidays abroad. Enjoy those Indian summer evenings until long after September by taking the indoors outside! Transform your garden into an additional room and feel like you’re on holiday all summer long.

Blue and white palettes

A classic favoured by Mediterranean shores, blue and white hues are a perfect and simple way to create the holiday feel in your garden. By decorating walkways, walls and even picnic table tops with tiles in deep sapphire and crisp white shades,you can create an exotic feel that brings your garden to life. Appeal Loves these Continental Vintage Faenza Azul tiles from Tiles Direct,

Wooden materials

Rustic furniture is a summer classic and the perfect staple to any outdoor living space. Smooth materials such as bamboo, wicker, acacia and teak all provide a place for relaxation whilst also ticking off the outdoor living trend. Appeal Loves Amanda Lindroth’s home which is packed with inspiration on how to create a Bahranian paradise;

Vintage motifs

Prints have been big so far in 2016 and the summer is proving no exception to this growing trend, as ditsy prints and light floral pop up in homes around the country. To tap into this trend Appeal loves these Liberty of London Wallace Secret Garden cushions, which complement the garden fauna whilst offering you a comfortable seat for all those alfresco meals!

Smart technology

The British summer means that outdoor living can often be curtailed by the weather, however with the correct shading you can make sure you can enjoy the outdoors whether the sun is shining or not. Appeal loves our Haus awnings which offer built-in LED lighting and infrared heating for those days which are a little cooler. And when we do get those hot summer days you and your outdoor furniture will be protected from the sun.
