This week we want to inspire you with some beautiful and practical ideas on how to update your garden lighting and furniture so keep on reading to find out more.
What could be better than a well deserved catch up on warm Friday night? Sit down on a soft throw and enjoy a sparkling drink with your friends. Fill your garden with light to make sure the night is not cut short when the sun goes down. Light fittings in white will give your garden a stylish and refined look. Our Zagorra 1 Light Pedestal Light is perfect for adding warm glow to your patio area. It’s traditional coach lantern design exudes timeless elegance and charm. Pair it with similar style wall lights for added ambience and style effect. Our Arun Wall Light in White will be a perfect match. It’s traditional lantern design will enhance your outdoor space and compliment the pedestal lights we have chosen for this look.
To add more cosiness to your outdoor space introduce accessories made of natural materials. Have you ever tried filling old wicker baskets with outdoor plants? Trust us, it will look absolutely stunning! You can even turn it into a little DIY project.
Wicker also works great with rustic finishes. This look will suit lovers of traditional designs and intricate details. Our Philips Hedge lighting range is IP44 rated to ensure safe outdoor use. Both wall lights and pedestal lanterns have a rustic brown finish and feature a decorative cut out detail that will add that bit of extra charm to your garden.
For added twinkle during the warm summer nights we suggest our Twig Lights that are battery powered so you can easily place them outdoors during a picnic party and then bring back indoors. Decorated with LEDs and shimmering crystals these Twig Lights will look just as beautiful indoors as they will outdoors. All picnics should have a picnic basket. These handy storage boxes can be used for storing food and cutlery not to mention that they can also serve as a decor element. You can also use them to hide away smaller gardening tools that might be lying around.
If you prefer the outdoors to the indoors during the summer months make sure your garden is cosy and comfortable. You should consider an outdoor living set. Whether it’s a garden gathering or a simple Sunday breakfast, a practical living set will make these moments extra comfortable. Make sure to have puffy cushions and an extra snug throw for the late night star gazing.
For this setup we suggest going for post lights and combined with wall lights or pendant lanterns. This lighting combination will ensure plenty of ambience during dark nights all year round. Lights from our Neri Outdoor lighting range are corrosion resistant and come with a 5 year warranty. Finish this refined look by adding floral arrangements and you’ll be all set for a fancy picnic party.
