Even when you group “like” plants, sometimes less is more. The neatly spaced succulents below are striking in their form, and the fact that they are separated by a blanket of basalt gravel makes them all the more prominent: Just as many modern landscaping techniques involve using gravel as a base, the use of greenery as a base can add interest and a sense of abundance. For example, planting rosemary around the base of a tree creates a green “stage” and makes the tree’s setting all the more special. Above and below, we see rosemary at the base of a crape myrtle tree. The tree’s pink blossoms are extra vibrant against the greenery that surrounds them. You can take this same concept and apply it to smaller additions around your yard, such as greenery in planters. For example, moss beautifully offsets the green succulent in the next featured planter.
Summer might be officially over, but it does not really mean you have to spend all your time indoors. Whether you plan the next few months on the patio, within in the confines of the sunroom or still wish to enjoy the colors of fall as you spend the slightly cold evenings in the garden, lighting becomes an increasingly essential aspect of that ‘perfect outdoor hangout’. And with the versatile and mobile Balad outdoor lamp from Fermob, you have a bright and energy-savvy companion that serves you well in a variety of outdoor settings and does so without the hassles of endless lines of wiring.
With summer here, our focus shifts from life indoors to those dreamy evenings and fun weekends under the sun. This is the time of the year when the pool deck sees more traffic than the living room and your outdoor décor once again plays host to friends and family. Be it a simple gathering of family members after a long, hard day or a fun-filled party to which everyone from the neighborhood inevitably gravitates, having the right décor makes a big difference. Gone are the days when outdoor furniture was a shabby collection of items that you no longer use in your own living room. Modern outdoor décor is as comfortable as furniture used indoors, equally stylish, diverse in styles and is definitely a lot more durable than ever before. From brilliant recliners, daybeds and chaise lounges that help you get the right tan to dining tables, chairs and side tables, there is absolutely no shortage of options here. Today, we delve into 25 latest outdoor furniture finds from 8 different global brands that epitomize luxury, design innovation and chic panache –
The Balad comes in two different versions, the H38 outdoor lamp that is slightly larger and its more mobile, smaller cousin the H25 outdoor lamp. Even with its larger radius, the H38 is still easily transportable and can be charged to give you 14 hours of continuous use. Of course, if you have a power outlet close by, then you will not have to worry about charging it as well! The unique LED technology of the lamp gives you two different brightness settings and you can even alternate between a warm 4000k light and a colder 6000k light. The smaller H25 offers you all the same features as the H38, but has a battery life of around 12 hours. Two different metal stands combined with the colorful variants of Balad allow you to create multiple lighting compositions for your serene backyard, small courtyard or urban balcony.
