  1. Comfort is key when choosing furniture – be smart.

Make sure the fabric choice is timeless and the furniture is durable for the weather. Have no regrets and get your upholstery furniture made bespoke. This will give you confidence in your outdoor décor and let you lounge in style and luxury.

  1. Add ambience to your space with lighting!

Simply place a few lanterns across your space, some tealights along walkways or add some zigzag string lights above head height. This will create a cosy and magical setting.

  1. Pop some colour – we dare you!

Cushions of all shapes and sizes are a must in your space outdoors. They add a pop of colour to your seating. Mix patterns and textures where you can, don’t hold back.

  1. Rugs will complete your space – they are great for separating areas and by plotting a few cushions down on top will give you more seating options for friends and family.

  1. Water your greens (providing there is no water ban, of course) and give them a little trim, TLC can work miracles.
