We've spent a lot of time over the last year decorating the new house (can I still it new?), but one place we haven't spent much time on is the garden. I suppose it makes sense - living in Scotland means that the garden is the place we probably spend the least time but for the Summer months, its good to have a place to hang out on a rare sunny day. I've been doing a few garden updates over the last month or so, and I'm excited to show a before and after when it's finally finished!
Today's post is in collaboration with Cox and Cox , which is a site I discovered at the end of last year when I was looking for Christmas decorations. The homeware is exactly the style that I love - that modern, minimal look with lots of greys, neutrals and natural woods. Their garden and outdoor living range is just as dreamy, so today I wanted to show you some of my favourite pieces and give some tips on how to give your garden a make-over with a few simple changes.
If you're on a budget, one of the quickest and easiest ways to update your garden space is to add a some simple accessories. Lighting is one of the things that will make the biggest impact - hang some fairy lights in the trees, drape some over the fence or add a few lanterns to create a cosy space. These teardrop outdoor lights would be perfect for lighting inside a gazeebo if you're eating outdoors on a summer night.
Another easy step is to add some accessories. Garden bunting is a always a favourite of mine and I absolutely love this outdoor window mirror and it's cool, rustic vibe. Even adding some plant pots around the seating area can really brighten up a garden and there's so many cool ways of doing it too. This grey plant shelf lets you create a little garden display which is great if you don't have much space and these hanging bird cages are so unique. I love how they've displayed them on the site with potted plants inside - how Pinterest is that?
If you're planning any garden updates this year, I'd highly recommend that you check out the outdoor living section on Cox & Cox.
