Get ready for long summer nights and al fresco dining with our style guide inspired by warm wooden tones, matte back accents, and on-trend botanicals
Style your outdoor dining space with on-trend botanicals
Summer and outdoor dining go hand-in-hand, so if you have the space, a dining set is a must for your outdoor area. This wooden setting easily accommodates six and comes with seat cushions, a bonus for those long balmy evenings as you while away the hours with friends and family.
And it’s easy to be green with the tall wooden planter box that breaks up the plain wall. Black is used as a splash of contrast – from the black vase with freshly cut palm leaves to the table set with black tumblers and plates
The warm, neutral tones chosen for the wall and tiles complement the natural wood of the table. Picking up on the botanical theme, palm cushions have been added to the seats for even more comfort and the table has palm placemats and wooden cutlery.
Black is used as a splash of contrast to the green and brown theme – from the black vase with freshly cut palm leaves to the table set with black tumblers and plates. The black powder-coated wall art makes a striking statement on the neutral walls.
