Our 3 Favourite Garden Trends This Summer
It’s officially Summer, which means longer days, warmer nights and lots of beautiful outdoor inspiration coming your way. From vast gardens to compact balconies and everything in between, anyone can transform their outdoor space into a Summer haven you won’t want to leave. To help you along your Summer styling journey, the Rug Gurus have whittled down their top 3 garden trends to see you through until the end of the season. Read on for major garden envy…
A Boho Summer
For a carefree Summer hideaway, boho vibes are always the most effective. To replicate this easy breezy look in your garden, stick to a colour palette of warm neutrals and airy shades. When choosing materials, mix between delicate and tough for a rugged, natural effect. Create a solid foundation with natural materials like earthy wood and wicker, before softening those harsh edges with sultry drapes and dynamic tassels.
We think our Jute Extra Runner Natural is the perfect match for this garden trend. The natural jute material, warm neutral tones and quirky tassels fit perfectly into any boho style space.
You don’t need a real life pool in your garden to truly experience this trend - poolside living is a state of mind. Take inspiration from bold, nautical patterns with colour palettes of blues and whites. Add a contemporary twist by replacing kitsch, beach style decor with more muted pieces that subtly reflect nautical style.
For a truly authentic poolside vibe, we recommend our Diamond Washable Rug Navy. Put a modern spin on this style by switching the pattern from stripes to diamonds, whilst maintaining the timeless colour palette.
A balmy Summer’s night is the ideal time for socialising with loved ones. To encapsulate this trend, place the focus on your outdoor seating area. Create a warm atmosphere with fairy lights, fire pits and lanterns, and mix soft textiles for a truly inviting space.
For cosy Summer evening vibes, we’d choose Sheepskin Natural. Keep it out of sight during the heat of the day, but dig it out for that extra added comfort at night. Our Sheepskins are so handy to keep around in case the temperature drops whilst you’re hosting friends and family. Make sure your guests are comfortable in your outdoor area on those balmy nights.
