Every British garden needs gorgeous garden furniture and decoration to create the perfect outdoor oasis – come rain or come shine.
Whether choosing a bench, a garden table and chairs, a swing seat or storage options in wood, rattan, metal or even plastic to complete your outdoor furniture set, it is perfectly fine to mix and match.
However, you could also create a theme for your garden, picking a table, seating, stands and storage of the same style and design to create a certain ambience. Garden blogger Alexandra Campbell of The Middlesized Garden Blog talks about her garden holiday favourites, picking furniture that remind her of places she has travelled to:
Buying garden furniture is like taking a mini-holiday. When we choose outdoor furniture, we have dreams of long, hot days and balmy evenings. Reminding us of the South of France, or Spain. Or even building sandcastles on a British beach.
This must be because we associate holidays with good weather. And when we buy furniture we’re imagining ourselves enjoying the sunshine in the garden.
So why not tap into your own favourite holiday memories when buying new furniture for your patio or garden?
