Summer outdoor living trends
With the summer of 2022 proving to be sultry and sun-kissed, three trends have emerged as people seek to make the most of the uncharacteristically consistent British weather.
According to LuxDeco – a luxury online interior design marketplace – we’re paying a lot of attention to our gardens and terraces as we aim to bring the holiday vibe home.
Imitating high-end hotels & restaurants
Many of us have decided to emulate the chic and luxe environs of swish hotels and al fresco restaurants by revamping run-of-the-mill garden spaces. Think quality outdoor seating, sculptures, outdoor mirrors, and soft furnishings.
Creating ambience for evening parties
Of course, nothing improves the atmosphere of any gathering like well-planned lighting. Whether it’s soft glowing lanterns, fairy lights glinting on the pergola, or inviting pathways illuminated by stylish stake lights, the possibilities are endless. Plenty of outdoor lights also mean you can keep the party going well after sunset.
Inspired by the Mediterranean
Continuing the opulent holiday theme, the Mediterranean aesthetic is proving popular. While beautiful tiles and white-washed walls reflect the sun and hint at warmer climes, natural hues and materials add a soft and cosy feel. Bright colours, including serene sea blues, and terracotta pots with herbs also form the perfect backdrop to meals inspired by the culinary hotspots of Italy, Spain, and Greece.
If you intend to sell soon, it’s worth thinking about how you can stage your outdoor spaces to appeal to buyers. We can help with this – simply contact our agents today for a friendly chat.
