Home & Design Round-up: Summer home & garden

Well summer is well and truly here, and I’ve lost count of the amount of amazing posts that I’ve seen, showing off bloggers summer styled outside spaces.  So I’ve collected my favourites in this sunshine filled Home and Design round-up.

Starting off with my contribution, and it’s the series that I have been writing about making changes in my garden. I’ve been trying to add colour and style to my outside space, more of that to come later this week.

So what else have I spotted?

How about the colourful vintage outside space from Lazy Daisy Jones. I love how she has upcycled things that people might have once thrown away, and made them into amazing one of kind pieces.  The Ercol sofa, just looks amazing, who wouldn’t want to laze in the sun on that?

How about this botanical balcony makeover from Melanie Lissack.  It just goes to show you, that a small space definitely doesn’t mean small ideas! The transformation of this space is amazing, I love everything about it, the use of colours and the palm details, and that gold log side table, perfection!

Around the Houses, has also been busy in her garden and she gives her step by step (budget friendly) guide of how to achieve it, before sharing the results, which are stunning.  If you have yet to have been bitten by the bug of painting your outside furniture and fences the darkest richest shade of black, then this one is for you.  I love how she’s highlighted it with the soft whites.

If you are looking for alfresco dining style inspiration, then this is a fantastic post from Dear Designer.  Its beautifully styled in a chic and understated way.  Complete with a pergola to retreat to, for after dinner coffee.

If you aren’t looking for garden style but interior summer inspo, then keep an eye out for next months post, where I will be sharing just that!
