Our favourite accessories to make your outdoor space an extension of the indoors

We’ve all heard of bringing the outdoors in, but what about taking the indoors out?

After spending more time at home lately and using our gardens for different purposes like social gatherings with family and workout areas, more of us are thinking of our outdoor space as an extension of the indoors.

Interior decorating the outdoors is a big trend at the moment, but it doesn’t have to be a big, expensive job. Some simple touches can help us to get the most from our garden and enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of our own homes, whatever the occasion may be.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite accessories to help you take the indoors out…
