As the warm summer months gracefully transition into the cosy embrace of autumn, there’s no better time to embark on a journey to transform your garden into a haven of beauty and relaxation. In our quest for the perfect garden, we discovered that the key to achieving a fabulous outdoor space is by creating zones that cater to various purposes.
Over the summer, we embarked on our very own zonal country garden makeover, and we’re thrilled to share our transformation journey with you.
Garden Furniture: Creating Comfortable Retreats
One of the cornerstones of a beautiful garden makeover is the right selection of garden furniture. We opted for pieces from Kettler, known for their impeccable craftsmanship and timeless design. Our garden is now adorned with comfortable outdoor dining furniture and a double daybed with a hood, creating inviting retreats where we can unwind with a cup of tea or host gatherings with friends and family.
We added a beautiful boho-style armchair from Folk Interiors to create the perfect reading area from Folk Interiors, as well as a bistro garden set from Pagazzi which makes an ideal space to sit with a cup of coffee and a book – being at one with nature.
Garden Lighting: Setting the Mood
To extend our garden’s charm well into the night, we turned to Philips Hue and Twinkly for innovative lighting solutions. The play of soft, warm lighting from these brands has magically transformed our outdoor space. Now, our garden is a serene oasis where we can stargaze, read a book, or enjoy a romantic dinner under the twinkling lights.
Accessories: Adding the Finishing Touches
No garden makeover is complete without the right accessories. To make our garden feel cosy and inviting, we introduced rugs, dining items, lanterns, blankets, throws, and cushions from Pappelina, Dusk.com Folk Interiors and Broste Copenhagen.
These additions provide comfort and style, making our garden a true extension of our home.
But don’t just take our word for it—see our transformation come to life in this video:

Why We Love Our Garden: A Continuing Journey
Gardens have a unique ability to bring joy and peace into our lives. They are a canvas for self-expression and a source of tranquility. What makes the process of creating a garden so special is that it’s ongoing. You can add new elements each year, watch your plants flourish, and see your vision come to life. Over time, your garden becomes an extension of your home—a place that’s not only beautiful but also homely and inviting. Whether it’s a blooming flower bed, a cozy reading nook, or a serene water feature, gardens allow us to connect with nature and find solace in our own slice of paradise.

Your garden will become a cherished sanctuary that reflects your style and provides endless moments of joy and relaxation.
