Punting down the river on a warm summer’s afternoon, cocktail in hand, is my idea of heaven. So when i spied the riverside decorating feature in September’s Country Homes & Interiors, I almost fell overboard.
I love the idea of creating a cosy little picnic spot overlooking the river. This summer is all about easy-going stripes in the fresh new colours of lilac and pistachio – and it works a treat. Add floral bunting, colourful picnicware and a comfy steamer chair to relax in. What more could you want?
Want to recreate the riverside look at home? Make a luxurious statement with a fabulous wooden bath tub and the softest of towels.
Bunting and flags give an instant party feel to outdoor dining. Set folding canvas directors’ chairs around a teak table dressed up with stripes.
