Wild About the Garden
As the UK summer is approaching, we are all looking forward to enjoying our gardens, no matter how big or small. Whether you have a modest outdoor terrace, a rambling country oasis, or an exciting pub beer garden, here at Peppermill we have a range of garden furniture ideas which can transform and inspire your outdoor space. We are seeing growing trends for summer 2022 including recycling and sustainable furniture, natural tones and minimalism. Discover your style with our Peppermill Garden tour.
TOP TIPS FOR STYLING OUTDOOR FURNITURE AND CHOOSING DECOR
• Pick a style of furniture that suits your theme. Are you an elegant country garden enthusiast, or an industrial lover?
• Think about the maintenance of your garden. Do you want something that is easy to sustain?
• Think about the environment. Is the material ecologically sourced?
• Choose the right size for your space
• Finalise a colour scheme.
• Choose accessories that compliment your outdoor space
Do you ever feel your garden is full of clunky and bulky décor? Less is often more especially when it comes to smaller outdoor spaces. You may have a simple balcony at home, or a pub with a modest beer garden, hoping to add additional seating for the summer season. Stacking garden furniture is a clever solution for spatial shortcomings. They can be easily stored away during colder months, so enjoy alfresco dining with our Barcelona Outdoor Patio Furniture.
There is nothing better than sitting outside in the summer, alfresco dining and enjoying time with family and friends. But for those who are environmentally conscious (most of us these days), there is a growing concern around plastic and non-recyclable materials being the main ingredient of our outdoor furniture and décor. Our new Miami Aluminium Outdoor Sets are a sustainable and eco-friendly furniture option, made from easy recyclable aluminium (it just so happens they are bang on trend with the 2022 minimalistic craze)
Looking to add colour to the local beer garden? Take a look at our Vienna Outdoor Aluminium Stacking Chairs and Tables.
Taking the lead with 2022 garden trends are muted colours and tones of the furniture, such as sage green, cream, and beige. Picture a typical English garden – freshly cut grass, wildflowers, overgrown trees, and the sound of water trickling from a fountain, then imagine our Alder Outdoor Dining range in that garden, it will create a warm and welcoming seating area for your guests during those hot summer evenings. The natural coloured rattan will blend with the surroundings of the garden itself creating a picturesque location for alfresco dining. We even have 2-seater sets, for a more intimate occasion.
On the patios we are seeing soft, warmer tones which offer a comforting haven, transitioning flawlessly between daytime demure to evening elegance. Our Drakeford Patio Corner Sofa Set with Dining Table, in a natural nutmeg colourway, is a perfect example of soft tones, inviting cushioning and guaranteed comfort.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
With summer approaching, we all want to spend more time in our gardens. A great tip for transforming an outdoor space and making a homely environment is to bring your interior style outdoors. Versatile accessories like mirrors blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces and create an utterly inviting and charming atmosphere for late summer evenings. Pick a perfect spot in your garden and perch your mirror against a wall or even amongst a flower bed. This will send a beautiful reflection of bouncing natural light around your garden in the most enchanting way. Pair with other outdoor accessories such as garden rugs and lanterns to create a warm ambience.
Take a look at our large vintage wooden window frame mirror, which will create an illusion of an entrance to another space you didn’t know you had.
