As we now enter what feels like the depths of winter, it’s hard to imagine that only a few months ago we were enjoying the very best of what the British summer had to offer. Flowers blooming, bright nights, and temperatures that didn’t start with a minus - they all seem like a distant memory now. But it never hurts to look back and think fondly of that short time we had enjoying the sunshine.
While we’re all for nights on the sofa in front of the fire with a hot chocolate and beginning that countdown to those festive Christmas markets, we thought we’d have one look back at what was a cracking summer we had in 2017 – and where better to honour this fabulous season than with our interior, or in this case, exterior inspiration post? This month it’s gardens, and while we’re not sure these luscious lawns will be getting quite the same TLC now as they were just a few months ago, we thought they deserved a big ol’ shout out all the same. Plus it never hurts to get some green-fingered inspiration ready for next year, right?

We expect gardens to be full of colour, but it’s safe to say Rachel takes it to another level. While flowers and a lick of paint have made all the difference in this huge outdoor space, we love how she’s been able to add even more colour with accessories too. Thumbs up to this bold and beautiful garden which certainly grabs our attention! See how Rachel started her garden makeover in her before and after posts if you fancy a similar look yourself – all done on an affordable budget too!

We’re forever lusting after Carole’s sleek and classy interiors – seriously, her home is stunning! Of course, when we took the chance to snoop over a couple of her garden posts, it was no surprise that her style had transcended perfectly into her outdoor space. Chic and sophisticated, yet practical enough to host a roaring garden party (when British weather allows, of course). Have a nosey at Carole’s great work over on her blog - the pergola is a particular favourite of ours, so good it could be a work of art!

Having been running her blog for an impressive 10 years, Kate is certainly no stranger into letting people into her home. We love her relatable, no-holds-barred approach to interiors and when it comes to sharing the ups and downs of home-ownership, Kate certainly keeps it real! When she shared her garden makeover at the start of the year, we couldn’t help but lust after her eye for detail and practical use of space. As a bit of an expert when it comes to style, she shares some of her garden inspiration finds too, which you can see for yourself here.
