At the summer sets in, it’s time to tackle that garden. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s the importance of having your own patch of green or at least somewhere to get a dose of vitamin D. Whether you’ve got a vast garden, a little balcony or just a sunny spot by a window, we’ve got the things to transform it into a perfect corner for relaxing or entertaining. Letting you do the boho trends inside and out, these styling tips are versatile for gardens and homes, so you can use your new purchases all year round. Here are our top 5 picks for boho garden furniture, and how we’d style them.
1) Petal chairs
Take a seat on your throne. This rattan petal chair is sure to catch compliments, in a striking shape and classic cane rattan build. Already cushioned with a comfy seat, we’ll be spending summer evenings curled up with a drink and a blanket. Already so eye-catching, this chair really needs no styling, but will look beautiful under a pergola, nestled under a tree or placed on patios.
But if the weather doesn’t allow or if you don’t have the space, we love this seat inside the home as well. Drape a blanket over and sit it on top of a fur rug for a perfect bohemian corner, making an ideal place to sit and enjoy a book. A fresh take on an accent chair, if velvet armchairs aren’t your thing, this is the chair for you.
Adding some greenery is the quickest way to amp up your space. A natural approach to adding colour, the bold green of monsteras, aloes and palms are sure to add some life to your home or garden. For outside, opt for tougher plants that will be able to weather the seasons, like a bay tree or citrus plant, whereas inside you can go wild with a whole host of tropical, leafy plants.
Plant stands are our current obsession. Combining practicality and style, the metallic design adds a little sparkle to your space with a tougher edge in a cool brass tone. The tall shape sat on modern metal legs makes these planters the perfect way to add décor to tricky corners or fill black space. We’d arrange a selection around a rattan chair or accent seat for a gorgeous feature corner indoors or in your garden.
A special feature to any space, a hanging chair is the ultimate comfy seat letting you gentle rock on a cosy hammock. Simply attach to two sturdy posts and this double rope hanging chair will elevate the boho vibes in your garden, adding a whimsical touch. Beautiful for entertaining or making a special spot to enjoy some alone time, a unique feature like a hanging chair is a great way to boost even the smallest gardens.
Whether you’re sparking up the BBQ or enjoying a charcuterie board in the sun, having a bistro set will make you 10x more likely to get out and enjoy the sun. The perfect place to catch up with loved ones, adding structure to your garden doesn’t have to be boring or un-aesthetic. Made of PE rattan, you also don’t have to worry about your garden furniture rotting or breaking during bad weather.
And if you only have a small patio or balcony, a bistro set will transform your space into a chic European lookout. With Parisian vibes, is there any better place to enjoy a glass of wine?
Styling a space is all in the little details, we especially love adding mirrors for simple decoration. Easily added to walls and fences, or hung from arbours, mirrors add style but are also an simple way to make your space feel bigger. If you’d got a balcony or a sunny corner, mirrors will help bounce the light around, giving the illusion of a bigger space.
