Let’s go garden this summer

Monday, August 12th, 2013

fresh-home-with-an-impressive-gardenSummers never last long in Britain and when they do; you should make the most out of it. Imagine a sunny day, you and him with a glass of wine sitting outdoors. It kind of sets the scene for a perfect movie romance just about to begin.

Hang on; we’ve kind of digressed from the topic, which is making the best use of your garden, balcony this season. Don’t let your outdoor space lie alone, nurture it and make it as stylish as possible. Here are some tips to help you do just that.

Balcony Garden

Many of us live in cities, where the maximum we can afford is a balcony. Worry not! You can transform this space as per your aesthetics and give it a feel of a garden. Add a little bistro table and chairs to create the perfect summer dining area.

If you are really limited with room, try adding a few decorative accessories such LED lanterns, bunting or wind chimes to add a touch of personality and design flair to the space.

Small Garden

Just pit a simple bench combined with colourful cushions and see how this small little change will entirely transform the setting into a comfortable lounge to spend a sunny afternoon in.

If you are a keen gardener, opt for a style which comes with built in storage so you can limit clutter and keep all your Garden tools nice and tidy. Also, since the garden is small, DO NOT overdo it with accessories. Small is just wonderful by itself.

Large Garden

If you are lucky enough to have a large garden, take advantage of the space you have available by creating an outside space which you can relax in at all hours of the day. Wicker style furniture is fab as it allows you to fill the space without it feeling too heavy.

Adding unusual pieces like water features and garden ornaments will give your garden a very different look.

Just in case you have no garden at all, a small pull along hamper is perfect to help easily transport all your summer goodies to the nearest park.

Finally, an umbrella that can take on UK downpour!

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Britain’s weather has always been a little naughty and I don’t see it changing anytime soon. Whenever I am in the mood to shop or hit the town, it starts raining. I know that its not logical to think rain is targeting only me but it sure does feel like I am the victim. I am sure many of you out there would be thinking on this same line. I was supposed to go shopping yesterday but once again, I got stuck home. Browsing through some webpages got me to a very interesting article. My silly logic says that this could be the single greatest invention Britain has ever seen. A hands free umbrella! Its shaped like a bubble covering your head and the best part is both your hands will be freeee!!

I was just looking at the picture and wondering why no one ever did come up with this before. I mean there is enough room in there to hold a cup of coffee, your cellphone or anything else you would want. This handy little device (pun intended) is named Nubrella. The manufactures claim that this umbrella cannot be blown off by the wind. I’ve seen pictures of cyclists using the device and I just cannot wait to get my hands on one of these. The creator of Nubrella claims that he got his idea after watching some people struggle with traditional umbrellas on a typical wet UK day. From me and many others, a big thank you for what you’ve done.

Now I do not know if fashion designers would take up Nubrella as a fashion accessory and include in their shows but I certainly wouldn’t mind. If you are out on a wet day struggling to keep your umbrella steady and getting wet, you won’t be that fashionable anyways right? With Nubrella, at least your face and makeup would be dry. Forget fashion, I think the best application for the device would be for people working outdoors. This is one invention that would revolutionize the umbrella industry and who knows may be the next version would be even better. The device costs around £30 and this would be one £30 I’ll be more than happy to spend.
