Country decorating trend: on the riverside

August 20, 2010

Punting down the river on a warm summer’s afternoon, cocktail in hand, is my idea of heaven. So when i spied the riverside decorating feature in September’s Country Homes & Interiors, I almost fell overboard.

I love the idea of creating a cosy little picnic spot overlooking the river. This summer is all about easy-going stripes in the fresh new colours of lilac and pistachio – and it works a treat. Add floral bunting, colourful picnicware and a comfy steamer chair to relax in. What more could you want?

Want to recreate the riverside look at home? Make a luxurious statement with a fabulous wooden bath tub and the softest of towels.

Bunting and flags give an instant party feel to outdoor dining. Set folding canvas directors’ chairs around a teak table dressed up with stripes.

Day dream believer

March 26, 2009

With the clocks set to go forward this week, i’m really getting in the mood for Summer, and I think a day bed, like this one, is just the ticket for warm, lazy afternoons. Team with shabby chic cushions and a colourful bunting for a country-style feel.
