When it comes to garden spaces, bigger is by no means better. If you’ve got a balcony, patio or small garden, you can create a beautiful outdoor space that you love with a little bit of planning and inspiration. Whilst we can’t design your garden for you, we can give you some great ideas to help get your imagination going and how to make the most out of the space you’ve got.

Bamboo Shelter

Add a little bit of Tuscany to your outdoor space with a rustic bamboo shelter. This style of covering will bring shade in the summer and protection in the windier weather. If you want to add some plants to your space, then it will also act as a trellis for climbing plants. You can easily add this style to any outdoor space.

Built-In Benches

Some freestanding furniture can be bulky and take up a lot of room. Maximise your space by incorporating some fixed seating and benches into your garden design. To add a splash of colour, incorporate some Moroccan-style cushions and blankets. Not all gardens have to be green, and the red tones will complement your garden features nicely.

Outdoor Dining

You can’t beat a bit of outdoor dining on a warm summer’s evening. If you want to add in an outdoor dining set, then think carefully about the space you have and the type of furniture you’re going to buy. There’s no point in having a large dining set taking up all of the limited room you have. Once you’ve found the set that’s right for your space, add an elegant tablecloth and some feature candles to turn your outdoor dining space into a luxurious one.

Add-In a Fire Pit

Adding warmth, ambience and light, a fire pit will bring so much to a garden. They’re available in a lot of different shapes and sizes, so there’s bound to be one that will work in your garden space, no matter how small. They make a great focal point, which you can then use as a feature point for the rest of your design.

Water Features

Whilst we don’t necessarily mean having a cascading waterfall in your garden space, you can get some great minimalist water features that are perfect for whatever space may be available to you. A water feature will make your garden a place of relaxation and peace and they make great focal points, as well as helping to create a tranquil environment.

There’s more to a good film than a gorgeous actor, great script, and an evocative music score. Set design is a vital component in encouraging audiences to believe wholeheartedly in everything they see on the silver screen. When a film set is badly designed, audiences are transported out of the narrative and back into their cinema seats. It sticks out like a sore thumb and it’s hardly professional. Continue Reading

The 1960s was all about cultural change and rebellion, this was true in all aspects of life including pop music, fashion and design. Historical influences were rejected by many new modernist designers who adopted new ways of thinking, they looked forward rather than backwards and the results are still extremely distinctive, half a century later. Continue Reading

Cheers – the bar stools and the chairs

We’ll start things off with perhaps a less obvious choice. The American sitcom Cheers suffered poor ratings when it first started out in 1982 – which almost resulted in it being cancelled during the first season – but it soon quite rightly became highly popular and it survived, running for 11 seasons until 1993. It starred a number of well-known American actors including Ted Danson, Shelley Long and Rhea Perlman, and it also launched the career of then-unknown Woody Harrelson, who went on to become quite a star – starring most recently in the 2014 HBO series True Detective alongside Matthew McConaughey.
