And Relax…

The sun is beaming, its Friday and all I can think about is kicking back and relaxing in the garden. At home I have a lovely view with a little wooden deck, I tend to drag the furniture outside when its really nice. Today I thought I would collate some sun loungers, if money was no object, these are few I would happily have dotted around my fictional pool.

What elegant curves, gently bobbing here seems rather perfect to me.

A rocker made for two. The natural linen looks so inviting.

Or perhaps do it yourself, the internet is bursting with recycled pallet ideas, I rather like this one.

From the rustic to the surreal – pink metal palm leaves bring shade to a rather glamourous day bed.

Simple lines and neutral furnishings, a classic way to soak up some sun.

Submerged chairs in the pool! Love it.

This lounger looks poised to pounce! Red leather and steel, perfect against the matt black background.

Smart ‘deck chair’ for the beach, easily portable and kind of cool.

What a happy place, dappled shade with silvered decking, metal framed seats, wooden tables and sinkable grey cushions. Not forgetting a fire pit!

Soft grey outdoor sofas with metal frames and wooden tables built in

Unusual design that I rather like, the head rests meet a point rising for that cushioned support.

Infinity pool with sea view and cool designed sun loungers with back rests that meet at a point

This basket weave day bed borrows its design from the waves. A handy cover in harsh sun, to me it has a welcome Seventies vibe.

I hope you find some time to relax this weekend!


Glamping – Camping in Style

Oh my goodness I want to go glamping! Could there be anything better? All the luxury of home in the great outdoors. Sleeping under the stars, roasting marshmallows and the ultimate comfort of a real proper bed!

Have you ever considered it? I am very keen. But where to go? You can have the African safari feel on an American ranch, or you could go to Spain and stay in a round yurt. Or even in my very own sunny (but soggy) Cornwall you can dream under canvas with Egyptian cotton sheets and enough cushions to have a descent pillow fight.

Here are a few images I found that would have me packing my pyjamas and my toothbrush in anticipation!

Oh this is lovely – generous space, draped canvas and a proper bathroom – bliss! (click the images to find the source)

Luxurious camping

I love the idea of a yurt. Feeling snugly wrapped in fabric, this one even has a carved wooden door!

Cosy yurt camping

A proper room, all kitted out with lovely wooden furniture, a cosy bed, and you can bet a charming view.

Posh camping

I love the shape of this tent, and do I peak what looks like a Welsh dresser inside? Dine in luxury but with all the sites and sounds of the countryside. Great characterful chairs too!

Luxury under canvas

This tent is amazing – a log burning stove is lovely and necessary in the very snowy Swiss Alps!

I guess glamping doesn’t have to be in a deluxe tent – this Airstream caravan is immensely homely and would be the envy of any camper!

Glamping in style

I can’t wait to camp in style, but where to start, and what view to pick!
