Summer is here and with it comes the exciting thought of long, candlelit summer’s evenings and barbeques with friends. Being able to use your garden or courtyard gives your family extra room to spread out and enables you to have more people over to parties and meals.
Here are some tips on how to accommodate those extra guests over the summer months with seemingly effortless style!
We have all had those evenings when we have had to charge indoors as the large drops of rain splatter the tablecloth. Don’t let that spoil the fun, with these Ross Lovegrove chairs from nest.co.uk you can just ask your guests to grab their wine and chairs and head indoors! They come in a range of cheerful colours and can be used outdoors or stacked for storage but also look amazing round the dining table.
Alternatively, some stylish folding chairs can be stored out of sight and brought out when extra seating is needed, invest in a couple of these gorgeous Kaneena Terai folding chairs from anthropologie.com and your guests need never know they are on the ‘spare chair!’
When they are having so much fun why should your guests leave?! Sofa beds are a great investment and allow your friends and family to stay overnight at the drop of a hat. Even better still, a corner sofa bed provides extra seating and makes the most of your space. This cloud sofa bed from loaf.com is gorgeous and can be upholstered in a range of stylish fabric.
Why not always have some ready made up bedding stored away for just such occasions…
