I am a big fan of Selina Lake's inspiring styling and interiors books, so I have been really looking forward to reading her new book all about styling outdoor spaces. "Selina Lake Outdoor Living" is a gorgeous book, jam-packed with beautiful images by Debi Treloar and so many beautiful ideas by Selina.
Yesterday the weather was so, so lovely that I thought it would be really nice to read Selina's book in the garden and then take some of her ideas and set up a little outdoor space of my own for us to enjoy for the day.
I used cushions and pretty fabrics, vintage china, and some bright cups. I gathered baskets and a little table and I hung pompoms in the tree. I added some flowers in pretty vases.
And I enjoyed reading this delightful book in the dappled sunshine. It couldn't have been a more perfect spot!
There are some wonderful locations and ideas in this book from buttercup fields to beach huts and afternoon tea parties to garden room fiestas. And I loved this idea for candles and flowers in the evening, so I just had to give it a little go. I can't wait for a beautiful Summer's evening later in the year.
'Selina Lake Outdoor Living' by Selina Lake is out now published by Ryland, Peters and Small.
