Room of the Week

May 29, 2013

For this weeks Room of the Week we are going outside! Although the weather is currently damp in London after a short break in the sunshine I am ready for summer. From the House to Home galleries this outdoor space would be the perfect place to enjoy some sunshine – but is also easily adaptable to the typically English changeable weather.

Outdoor living

This garden area uses hard landscaping to create a combined seating and planting area. A very durable paint finish has then been applied in a soft grey. This softens the concrete so that it blends well with the rest of the garden, the grey has also been used on the garden fence. The structure allows cushions to be added when needed, but they can easily be removed and stored on those very frequent wet days.

The choice of fabrics suitable for outdoors has increased dramatically in the last few years. Kirkby Design has just introduced a great range of durable fabrics in their Canopy collection. This range is designed to be used outdoors, either by the pool or on your patio furniture. Having custom made exterior cushions is far more interesting than using the regular range available – which invariable feature boring green stripes! The fabric has a high level of light fastness so your investment should last for years and it is also water and mould resistant.
