Let's move outside
March 28, 2011
Good morning, what did you get up to over the weekend? We spent a couple of hours in a pub beer garden yesterday, which really signals the start of summer for me, so I thought I'd ease us into the week with these inspiring images of outside spaces. Our garden is like some big wild forest that the landlord arranges a gardener to sort out, but I'd like to set up a nice seating area ready for when it's warm enough to have friends over for BBQs, and for the music festival we're planning to throw this summer. I like to think of the garden as an extra room, and love the idea of built-in seating strewn with colourful cushions, as well as an outside cooking area with prep area, grill and wood-fired pizza oven. Basically, all the things that allow us to make the most of the short British summer and spend as much time outside as possible.
