Stylish Ideas For Postage-Stamp Gardens

Good things come in small packages

The sun is finally shining – and soon we can meet six friends or family outdoors for the Easter bank holiday weekend (and a predicted heatwave). No matter how petite your garden, balcony or terrace, get it photo-ready with inspiration from these stylish bijou gardens. Apérol spritzes at the ready…

Maisons du Monde terrace

Glowing fairylights, bright soft furnishings from Maisons du Monde and overhead vines do the trick to create an enchanting and cosy snug, perfect for mini cinema screenings.

Raj Tent Club

Trends come and go, but a vintage jardiniere never goes out of style. Decorate yours with colourful enamel jugs, froths of flowers and piles of pretty ceramics.

Dobbies small garden

An uplifting twist on boho elegance – hanging lamps, abundant tropical plants and Dobbies four-piece conversational set are offset by a pop of yellow wall.

Maison Du Monde

A trip to the Med may be a way off – but this whitewashed, tropical-bright courtyard is the perfect place to sip Sangria in the meantime.

East London Parasol company

To create your own mini Glastonbury within the confines of your garden – vintage furniture and a beautiful parasol from East London Parasol Company is a must.

Gaze Burvill outdoor furniture

Long evenings here under the stars would be something from a storybook. Gaze Burvill‘s regal May Throne chairs sit perfectly in these rose-filled surroundings.

Screen with Envy

Clever use of these screens from Screen with Envy creates a statement focal point, and come in handy as a photo-ready backdrop for aperitivos.

Delicate furniture is the instant shortcut to provencal charm in a garden on the smaller side. Add bushels of lavender, a glass of rosé, and pretend you’re overlooking sun-drenched french vineyards.

Raj tent club

A day bed is the dream spot for a slow afternoon with a  book or podcast. With a luxurious striped canopy awning, we’d happily nod off on this one from the Raj Tent Club.
