Summer Dining

[1. Mason Jar Tumblers by PoppyandPearlCo; 2. Table Cloth by nurdanceyiz; 3. Stacking Cups by perchceramics; 4. Reworked China Plate by TheReworkHouse]

Here at Red we love a good dinner party, and nothing says summer more than getting
some friends over, settling down and watching the sun sink slowly over the horizon.
We also think minimum effort leads to maximum enjoyment, and simply strewing
these about your table should instantly create the right vibe. Entertaining at its easiest.


[1. Hanging Planter by ebenotti; 2. Wall Planter by ArtGlamourSligo; 3.Owl Planter by BoulderDesign; 4. Animal Planter Trio by CoastalMoss]

Even if your outdoor space is no bigger than a windowsill, it doesn’t mean you can’t
get your hands dirty with a bit of green-fingered gardening. Yes, the terrarium is back,
straight from the 1970s, and planters are the perfect way to get growing with no fuss


[1. Rose Postcard Bunting by AnitaSperoDesign; 2. Circus Garland by FabulouslyHomemade; 3. Paper Flower Garland by lillesyster; 4. Pom Garland by PomLove]

We may not have a big royal occasion this year (aside from Baby Middleton, of
course) but that doesn’t mean you can’t give your garden a bit of easy cheer in
seconds with some very modern takes on bunting.

Outdoor Living

[1. Vintage Parasol by Strazor; 2. Garden Bench by TheWickedWorkshop; 3. Moroccan Style Lanterns by LITdecor; 4. Patio Pillow by PillowThrowDecor]

Relax, pull up a deckchair, have a snooze. Summer is all about lazing around, and
being as comfortable as you can be. These colourful and comfy pieces of garden
furniture will allow you to turn your outside into another room. All you need to do is
bring your own bottle of something very, very cool.

    Thank you so much for sharing Pip! Now that South Africa is moving into Summer I need all the Summer inspiration I can get :) My favourite has got to be the Moroccan Style Lanterns! x
