Summer is upon us and to enjoy the sun we can look to style and design our outdoor living spaces are as exciting as our indoor spaces. 

Outdoor rugs are a great way to make an area stylish and attractive with colour, pattern or both. Tie in to chair cushion (try IKEA ) and throw colours; and style an area with as much attention to trend as any room. Plus add in some great garden accessories available across the high street – pots, ornaments, lamps and tables

To start the area design, find a great outdoor rug. We love this monochrome patterned rug from CuckooLand, which ties in perfectly to current trends. Style with either dashes of bright mustard or teal, or compliment with blush pink, metallic and greys.
