Summer’s almost here, should you start thinking about your garden and how to get the best from it in the next couple of months? A stylish one is of course something that will turn your place from zero to hero in no time. These are my personal advices for it, I will guide you through the biggest trends for this upcoming season, so take notes because it’s time for a quick makeover!
If you’re not an experienced gardener, then let me tell you this: a multiple coloured garden is, of course, good to see, but at the same time incredibly hard to create and maintain. Limit your colour scheme and you’ll be fine, as this is a simple fashion trick that perfectly applies to living areas too! It’s important to understand that simplicity is everything and a minimalistic approach truly shows class and good taste, so keep that in mind when planning your new place! Try to put in some ornamentals, that works too.
Mixing elements is the key. Nothing shines more than a grass area combined with sculptures, a small fountain eventually, (for the classy look) a modern bar, a sofa, some chairs. A simple design always wins in this type of environment, therefore I suggest you to not overcomplicate things. In the end, remember, you are still setting up a place for your guests and your loved ones. Impressing them is fine, but go easy with it.
Is this your Living Room?
You heard me. You want your guests to feel like they are in your living room. It’s summer so you better let them feel the fact that those boring winter days are gone for a bit. Even if they are just coming to yours for a beer, they should feel the same comfort as they were in your main living area. My hints? Big lounge cane furniture pieces, which are comfortable but classy at the same time.Cane chairs are the best match for this, as they add a minimalistic touch while keeping your space classy and comfy. Style, comfort, personality. Keep these 3 words in your mind and you’ll be fine.
This is your garden, it should tell your guests who you are, why they are here and most importantly, what differs you from the others. Remember, no one is weird! Having a model is fine, but don’t stick to those “copy-paste” designs and trends that you find on Google. Don’t be afraid, in the end, the first one who should be proud of your garden is you.
If your space has reduced dimensions, don’t worry: focus on its vertical potential. I’m talking about hanging baskets, for example, where you can put plant pots in a vertical row. Lighting is very important, also: the more bright your garden is, the better. Combine these two hints and in a matter of minutes and with a very low budget, your small space will look huge, good luck!
