The skies are getting that deep blue colour, the temperatures are warmer and the shining sun lures you out enjoying that pleasant switch of seasons, which entails lots of outdoor entertainment, dinners and a chilled glass of wine during sunsets. This means it is time to check on our long forgotten patios, gardens and terraces and see how we could revive them for the new season with a trendy feel and a splash of colour. Here at DYH we came up with the top three, easy to apply tips to create an attractive outdoor space to enjoy with family and friends.
Whether small or spacious, you can reimagine your outdoor venue, infusing it with life and vibrant ambiance. The furnishing is one of the most important features of the space. If your patio is restricted in size then focus on foldable, space saving chairs and tables, which will be easy to put away and at the same time accommodate a larger group of guests. The perfect item for this occasion is the Design Folding Chair Ultra Slim, which is easy to store without taking too much space.
If you benefit from a larger garden or terrace, then turn your attention in placing some elegant soft furnishings in white or beige colours. This will add a light, summery feel into your exterior and will allow you to mix and match different in colour and shape accessories and lamps. You can also complement the greenery and plants in your garden with wooden furniture, which perfectly integrate with the outdoor nature. A great addition to your exterior set will be the Ducombe Coffee Table – lightweight and easy to maintain and move around.
Accessories are an integral part of creating a stylish and unique space for your summer days’ home retreat. Accessories will give personality and character to any space as well as adding comfort and a cosy feel to your garden. Colourful, artistic cushions create an impressive focal point to any furnishing as well as providing a relaxing feature to your sofa or chair. Creative pillows and funky accessories and decoration will add fun to your outdoor space making it an attractive part of your home.

What better to set the mood than the right lighting? Subtle outdoor lamps are a vital part of creating the right ambiance and feel to complement your planned entertainment party or romantic dinner. For this purpose we would recommend simple and functional pendants, which would produce a soft diffused light. Have a look at the Nude Classic pendant on DYH.com. This simple, yet artistic pendant comprises only from a bulb and a cord, which comes in a large variety of colours and patters to fit with the individual design taste and needs.
