Summer Living: Indoors & Out!

Perhaps it's the beautiful weather we're finally experiencing here in London, but for whatever reason I'm feeling super inspired today by this summer living shoot by the team over at Dalani. Having grown up in the countryside I've always felt an affiliation with being outdoors. Now, I'm not exactly the hiking type but I do like the country idyll of being closer to nature's natural beauty. What can be better on a summer's afternoon than moving the table and chairs outdoors and styling up a little afternoon tea for close friends? Update your existing outdoor pieces with a scattering of throw cushions and an array of terracotta pots over following with fragrant herbs. Or, create a little haven to read by layering up textiles with throws, pillows and outdoor rugs. If you're looking to bring this outdoor vibe inside then why not update your sofa with a tropical palm print fabric? I also love the idea of creating a summer themed inspiration wall of seasonal tear sheets. The key to making this look work indoors is to use plenty of organic materials and fresh, green hues - I'm really tempted by the mango wood Industrial Coffee Table. Is anything catching your eye from this Dalani collection?

  6. The tear sheets idea is great, although putting them on the wall could be a bit of a nightmare (luckily we have plenty of magic white board for that!).

    You have inspired me here, I have been looking for a way to get lots of themes ready for new project we have on, and that means sorting out the office...

    Ok, I know it's not a summer haven and I probably won't insert the odd tropical cushion BUT as for the walls, bring on the photos!

  11. I love these beautiful outdoor areas, and of course, the styling! I'm in need of some serious outdoor relaxation - maybe something like that sweet hanging chaise?

  12. love your green lesson Mr! I just recently finished redecorating my balcony and it looks fab! Will send you a link when it is up. I put faux grass on the floor and put together a collection of sapphire and kelly green together to complement a classic ink and cream color scheme! Can't wait to share the pics!
