Outdoor Overhaul

Now that we’ve almost completed the layout of our new garden I’m turning my attention to the part I love the most – decorating it! I’ve created some mood boards of the best garden décor trends around with lots of beautiful pieces from Wayfair to inspire us all!

Country Garden


I love the country garden vibe! Lots of pretty pastels and florals are the key to achieving this décor look. Pair together with vintage garden furniture and you’re all set for afternoons in the sun with dainty drinks and picnics.

The floral wreath above could be used as a table centrepiece or hung on a wall to add to the look. I love the shape of the planter with trellis, I would probably give this a coat of antique white paint to tie in with the furniture and plant some pretty climbing flowers in it – you could even use multiple of these to create a decorative garden border.

The botanical garden look makes me think of Earthy décor with lots of green accents. This would work perfectly with a garden full of beautiful plants and flowers. The leafy accents on the outdoor rug, cushions, tray and plant pots compliment each other well and help tie the whole look together. I love this chimenea too for those brisker summer evenings!

The sofa set has a great neutral palette which means that you could accessorise it easily with some cushions or coloured throws depending on your mood.

Beautiful jewel tones are very popular and work well with the Moroccan style – this look would work great with lots of cushions scattered on an outdoor rug to create a chill out area. The Moroccan look also includes gold metallic accessories, such as this stunning lantern – imagine the shadows that would cast in the evening!

Create your own piece of the seaside by teaming shades of blue, grey and white together in a nautical inspired space. Stripes are particularly characteristic of this trend and work well on the rug and cushions – as well as the themed items with anchors, boats and lighthouse lanterns.

I love the look of that hammock, it would make the perfect spot to chill out with a good book and an ice cold drink!

This is more of a quirky style with lots of bright, bold, beautiful colours mixed together that compliment each other. It would be difficult to sit there and not feel instantly uplifted! I love the idea of keeping the furniture a more neutral shade and using bright accessories to add the colours instead, as again it makes it easier to swap the colours around to create a new look with a neutral base.

You could of course add some citrusy yellows and oranges to this mix to create an even more rainbow-like look!

Copper is huge in home décor at the moment and would look fantastic in an industrial style outdoor garden. Combining dark colours with hints of metallic copper to create a modern industrial feel. That copper fondue set is sure to be popular on a summer evening sitting around that sofa with good company – don’t forget the wine!

The industrial look pendant lights are made for outdoor use and could be used as statement lighting. The black patio heater would work great with this look and keep you warm on cooler evenings.

Holiday Chic


Now I’m sure this style will seem familiar to most of you – this is the style I’ve opted for in our new garden. Use a palette of white and grey to create a sophisticated oasis in your garden, it reminds me of being on holiday in a smart chic hotel, somewhere hot!

Fire pits are gorgeous garden focal points, they can be used to keep you warm in the evenings and also to toast marshmallows on! Having a space for drinks is also great for entertaining guests, whether with a tall table or a bar area.
