Banish white plastic patio furniture for good with the colourful new outdoor range from Marks & Spencer. Jostling for your attention are the Summer Brights and Fresh Greens collections, with Indigo Blues, pictured here, combining raw materials, coloured glass and vibrant ocean tones for a look that oozes subtle seaside chic.
Finding a hot spot in the garden that also offers enough shade to save you reaching for the factor 50 shouldn’t be a problem with John Lewis’s Leia outdoor alcove seat. Its cocoon-shaped canopy, which is made from eucalyptus wood and fisherman’s rope, creates a piece of furniture that almost begs you to curl up inside and watch the world go by.
Word has it that it was the blue water and fresh air of the Italian seaside that inspired H&M Home’s summer collection. Expect cotton weave and washed linen bedding, crystal clear glassware and accessories in earthy jute textures. Can you feel the breeze coming in from the ocean? We can.
Walk down the aisles at Sainsbury’s this summer and expect inky blue and white tableware worthy of a sun-drenched Santorini home. Yet it’s the ancient Japanese dye technique of shibori that really gets the nod, with indigo-toned batiks and tie-dye effects plastered across plates and napkins. Now where to find that effortlessly aged rustic wood table?
ROOM FOR ONE MORE?
The more the merrier and Habitat’s Feliz range perfectly caters to squeezing those last-minute plus-one’s around the table. Take its European oak bench – it’s a five-seater, but we can easily see a few extra aunts and uncles sliding on. And its scoop-shaped rattan chairs are just the thing for those going the distance over lazy brunches.
