Pip McCormac is the Lifestyle Editor of Red, the monthly magazine that celebrates the best things in life. From food to fashion, homewares to travel, it’s filled with ideas to make the most out of life.
All these products celebrate the best of summer, easy additions to your home and garden that will make the most of the sunshine. Fun, colourful and vibrant. Enjoy!
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.
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
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.
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.
