Festoons and Flamingo’s…


We have got to talk about what’s trending ‘festoons and flamingo’s’ for your garden this summer

I love being British and we Brits love talking about the weather. When the sun finally arrives, we dash to the wardrobe to forage for our summer clothes, grab the sandals, sunglasses and start thinking about our garden. We start weeding, mowing the lawn, retrieving the garden furniture and begin the process of spending time in our gardens.  Gardens are becoming extensions of our homes and more and more we are embracing having the living room look outside. The rattan sofa is the perfect look, with comfortable cushions and coffee table or should that be the pimms table! To give your outside space character, don’t forget the details as its always the little touches that bring your garden room to life. This year I will be adding two new details to my outdoor living room, the first being, the flamingo’s. They will add fun and a fabulous splash of pink to my flower beds. The second detail is festoon lighting for that alfresco dining on a warm evening, glowing pops of light that will set the mood and bring atmosphere to a perfect garden room.
