fun garden furniture - fun in the sun

Be inspired by Houseology's top seven tips for fun in the sun this summer.


Interior Design Ideas

01.The Fatboy Lamzac- a fun portable garden sofa

We love this new design from Fatboy - it’s the epitome of fun garden furniture. As well as being playful and stylish, the Lamzac is incredibly comfortable and inflating it couldn’t be easier – just a couple of swishes and you’re good to go. They’re perfect for additional seating in the garden when there are more guests than expected and great for taking on holiday with the family as it folds away so neatly and is ideal for relaxing on the beach.

02.Summer sipping - stylish carafes and punch bowls

When the sun is out at the weekends it's great to be able to sit outside, unwind with friends and family and experiment with summer tipples. Adding lemons and limes to a carafe of water or oranges, strawberries and cucumber to a jug of Pimm’s brings a stylish and colourful addition to the table, especially when you serve it in a gorgeous jug or punch bowl.

03.Al fresco dining - outdoor ovens

Cooking and enjoying dinner with the family is one of the greatest pleasures and in summer we try to eat outdoors as often as the weather will permit. This summer we'll be swapping the classic barbecue recipes and instead we’ve been experimenting with creating delicious pizzas al fresco in a wood fired oven – it makes the most delicious bases.

04.Bringing the inside out - fun garden ornaments

Part of the joy of entertaining outdoors is definitely setting the scene. Outdoor dining has a more relaxed, laid-back vibe so formal table settings aren’t necessary. Instead try decorating with lanterns and festoon lighting, succulent plants and bundles of cushions and throws – essential for adding colour and texture and can be used to sit on or to snuggle under later in the evening.

05.Toasting everything - designer fire pit ideas

Fire pits]( are such a worthwhile investment this summer and means you’re able to spend even more time unwinding in the garden. As well as creating a cosy, ambient glow and looking gorgeous, try toasting everything in sight – s’mores are definitely catching on with the Houseologists!

When we have some time to myself to relax and unwind, we look no further than the Fatboy Headdemock. It’s so wonderfully comfortable and you don’t need to worry about anchoring it to anything – it’s perfect pop-up luxury!
