I’ve been hunting for garden ideas in past magazine issues and deep in the depths of an old Country Homes & Interiors magazine (I kid you not, it had dust on it!) ANYWAY, I thought these ideas were way too pretty to gather dust – relaxing in the garden never looked so chic.
What I really love about them though is that you don’t have to have a large country garden to incorporate these ideas, a small cute urban patio will do just as well – which suits me to a tee!
I know I know, at some point you’re going to drag it inside BUT in the meantime you get a simply stunning place to chill out in the garden (afternoon nap, anyone?!) Plump up a day bed with colourful cushions and hang a mosquito net.

YES PLEASE! A hammock is a summer essential – practical, compact, portable and an instant lounger. Hang from something sturdy, add cushions and enjoy – but make sure you grab your drink and book first, or it can get tricky!
