Garden accessories to blend your indoor and outdoor spaces this summer

Our ideal summer setup is an outdoor space that flows seamlessly from inside – we’ve gathered some inspiration to help you achieve it.

If you’re lucky enough to have a home with its own outdoor space, the summer months are the time to make the most of it. When used to its full potential, any outdoor space, no matter how large or small, can feel like an extension of your home, another room to gather together, or simply relax in. 

There are some simple ways you can make your garden or balcony feel more connected to the interior of your home. Having the right garden furniture so there is somewhere inviting to sit is key, but you can also create cohesion between interior and exterior with accessories to blur the boundaries and link the spaces. 

Outdoor rugs add softness underfoot as well as pattern and colour. Choose a style that wouldn’t look out of place inside your home for maximum indoor-outdoor flow.
