DG AT HOME | Bring the inside out

“The new world order shines a spotlight on the little things in life and how we must hold them so much closer than we did before.

Spend as much time outside as you can, if you have a garden, patio or balcony, try moving your home office out there (if the weather permits) for the day and reap the benefits that, in another life a few months ago, you would have been spending indoors inside an office.

The garden is another living space that just happens to be outside. The garden, the house, the decoration, the plants… they are all part of the same thing. Approach the decoration of your garden in the same way that you would your home – both should be artfully planned and vibrantly decorated.

If your outdoor space is on the smaller side and there isn’t quite enough room for lounge chairs, then consider having large and durable outdoor cushions made and place against a wall to style your own seating area. Add smaller cushions to enhance comfort and create your own serene nook for reading and relaxation.

I love to take time to lay my garden table for a light and easy summer lunch; dressing with our Lario tablelinen in shades of cobalt and sky blue, with plates of marbleized blue supplying a note of modernity.
