Inside, Out: Tips on Creating a Cosy Outside Space
As Spring approaches, want your outside space to feel just as welcoming and cozy as what’s going on inside? Us too. Read more for our tips on creating the ultimate outdoor space.
1. Keep it Simple
There’s no need to buy more greenery when summer arrives. Our top tip? Pop your houseplants in elegant pots and planters that can be easily moved back inside at night and when the cold weather returns.
2. No Green Thumb?
Not got the best track record at keeping plants alive? Leaf-print cushions and textiles are a great way to add a botanical touch without having to worry about the watering. They’ll make your space feel super comfy, too.
3. Take a Seat
Now it’s time to think about furniture. We recommend utilizing stools and weather-resistant chairs – you can use them as extra seating when guests arrive, side tables for drinks and snacks, or even as sculptural plant stands. So versatile!
4. Make it Multi-Purpose
In order to make the most of your outdoor time, think about bringing some of your inside furniture outside for an afternoon. We love this cost-effective way to create a cozy (and temporary) space outside to enjoy the afternoon sun.
5. Time to Relax
Your work is done. All that’s left to do is treat yourself to an iced tea (or mojito!) prepared with mint grown from your own balcony or garden. Then sit back on your sofa with your favourite book, and enjoy the calming vibes you’ve created.
