FIONA’S STYLE IDEAS
Look for double duty items. This fire pit is nifty as, with the addition of a bamboo lid (sold separately), it converts to a coffee table when it’s not burning wood.
Keep to a soft colour palette in a small space, to avoid it feeling too crowded. To link interior and exterior, consider what colours are used inside. Here, I mixed neutrals with elegant sage greens.
Candles and lanterns create cosiness. But if yours are likely to blow out, or you have littlies, try battery powered candles – they’re safer but flicker like real candles!
When choosing fairy lights, think practical. This curtain-shaped string can be easily removed when the hedge needs trimming.
