Our summers may be short and unpredictable, but that shouldn’t stop us making the most of our outdoor space and enjoying some al fresco living. If you’re not venturing abroad this year, it’s even more important to create a relaxing escape and pretend your a million miles away from everyday pressures.
We’re getting inspired by the 3 destinational outdoor looks Marks & Spencer’s Home Editor, Jo Caulkett, has created. With a few added features and accessories, you really can turn any space, whether it’s a garden or balcony, into your dream oasis.
Some may say you can’t beat a British summer, so why not go all out with vintage tableware, wooden furniture and floral prints and recreate your perfect escape to the country. For a modern twist, add coloured glass tableware and every tea time a special occasion.
You can really escape it all by setting up your own mediterranean themed escape. Marks & Spencer’s home editor Jo Caulkett suggests, ‘team laid-back seating with Moroccan-inspired lanterns, mosaic patterns and geometric prints’.
Why not add in some real authenticity and enjoy some rustic al fresco dining with a mosaic blue Katerini Firepit?
Introduce a taste of Miami beach resort to your balcony with a mix of modern, clean-lined furniture, fun accessories and pops of bright colour, then sit back and enjoy the cocktails.
We’ve picked our 8 favourite pieces from the edit we can’t wait to show off when the weather warms up.
