As you all know summer is finally upon us, (yes yes it took its sweet old time but we do live in England) and with each season I love to change up the decor in my house and garden by getting a few jazzy new pieces. I've teamed up with Fishpools to put together my summer garden wishlist, which was so much fun with my imaginary, unlimited budget! I've scoured the web for my favourite pieces, so I hope this post gives you some #GardenInspo!

2. Wilkos Solar Lantern Moroccan Metal - £6
3. Next Erica the Elephant Planter - £70

6. Fishpools Irina Teal Cushion - £24
7. Wilko Cushion Chenille Teal - £4
|Close your eyes whilst lounging on this and you're ALMOST in Ibiza. Sort of.|
I prefer to keep my larger/key bits of furniture neutral, cause then with each season it makes it super easy to swap out accent pieces like cushions, without having to worry about clashing colours and prints! The Saint Thomas Rattan Daybed from Fishpools is perfect for lounging in the sun in style, and the cool grey colour really gives me those chilled out Ibiza vibes! It can be separated to seat more people and there's a handy coffee table in the centre (so you have somewhere to rest your empty glass of Aperol Spritz. Or gin and tonic. TBH Girl, whatever your potion, I approve).
Moroccan decor is so beautiful, and I know my dream garden wouldn't be complete without an Eastern-inspired lantern or two! This one from Wilkos is the Solar Lantern Moroccan Metal, and it's perfect cause it's solar powered so there's no pesky batteries to charge or replace! (Plus it's really gorgeous and rustic looking too!) It would look even cuter surrounded by some little white pebbles and stones - which are a great fuss-free way to jazz up a bit of empty space!
|The temptation to get a whole elephant planter family is real..|
What garden doesn't have plants? Or planters for that matter? This Erica the Elephant planter from Next is absolutely freaking adorable, and it fits perfectly with the grey theme I have going on. I'm really loving greys and exposed concrete, they give off that cool done but undone vibe. You know? FYI Next are killing it with their homeware at the moment, but then again, I'm probably slightly biased cause I now work there. (Didn't you know? Catch up on all that here...)
Anthropologie is always my go-to place for little trinkets and accessories, cause they do them so darn well. I was originally looking at their coloured tumblers and glasses until found these stunning Murano Coasters, and knew I had to have one in each colour! They'd work perfectly on the coffee table in the centre of the Daybed, as they tie in perfectly with the design on the Fishpools floral cushion!
I was initially looking for some pretty teal wine glasses for my summer garden wishlist but after finding the Anthropologie coasters above, I knew I had to find something slightly more understated and neutral to compliment them. I love the Bellagio Wine Glasses from M&S, they're classic yet the gold-dipped effect adds a uniqueness to them, and I felt they really fitted in with my greys and warm metals.
I went (virtual) shopping around for some teal cushions to bring a bit of colour to my outdoor furniture, and came across these vibrant Chenille ones from Wilkos. (They're so cheap and cheerful it doesn't matter if they get left out in the rain either!) I'd finish the daybed off with the beautiful Irina Teal Cushion from Fishpools. The floral design on it is so pretty and delicate and I feel like it brings the whole look together.
|Who couldn't cosy up and fall asleep in this?|
Keeping with the grey theme, I'm loving this Maze Rattan Malibu Grey Hanging Chair from Dunelm cause it looks so cosy! I stumbled across it just as I was finishing the editing on this post, and felt it was so cute I just had to include it! I find swings and hanging chairs so relaxing and kind of therapeutic to sit in. Is that weird? (Probably knowing me...)
Thanks so much to Fishpools for collaborating with me on this fun little post, and remember to check out their fab selection of outdoor furniture and accessories! Let me know in the comments how you'd like to decorate your dream garden (or real one) this summer!
