Do you dare to be a bit different when it comes to styling your garden? Or do you play safe ?

When styling your garden, never forget that It is often used as another living space.



I hope that i'm not the only one to want something a little bit different in the garden from the usual run of the mill garden furniture sets.

The photo above is an option that is easily sourced. My changes for this would be to go for some colour in the chairs, Stainless Steel chairs with vibrant coloured cushions.

The stainless would then compliment the material (steel) used for the structure.

There are some unique online home furniture websites that offer some lovely items. When you have found your cool garden furniture don't forget to mix it with some of your own style using soft furnishings. You will then end up with a bespoke looking garden. Individual to your taste and standing out from the crowd. Creating a wow factor of a garden.

Shop around and do your research. I have added some links at the end of the blog.

Pallets are still a real craze, you can make everything from a bed to a coffee table and now outside seating. Doing this saves money but protecting it correctly it can last for years, as long as who ever is making it knows what they're doing.

Simple and easy to achieve. You can make it as easy as you would like.

This is a Wow factor for me.

Ok if you have a slightly larger budget then why not indulge yourself?

I adore this funky area, again other than the cost of the steps you could actually create this on a budget too.

If you have a large budget then flaunt it.

White walls are the perfect backdrop for showing of the lush Green plants, to finish this off for me it has to be the Pink Flamingo's and those stunning cushions. Ok the guys may not like this so much I'm not really a one for Pink but i think this is great. To me this garden brings a little of the 50's era in Palm Springs.

The biggest trend last year inside the home and outside was the tropical look used in fabrics and wallpaper. A big thumbs up for me. As it is still being used this year.

I know living in the UK we don't come first in the queue for good sunny weather but when we do get it, it means a lot to us, so get your garden ready with some cools ideas and make the most of what Spring and Summer have to offer.

Check out these places to shop if your looking for different and stylish garden furniture. (For those that like something a little different) (For those on a large budget) (For those that can search for a bargain Maison Du Monde do offer some value for money) (for those with a medium budget)
