Hygge for the Garden? Creating a Stylish Outdoor Space

The last couple of years have seen an overhaul of our interiors in the much lauded ‘Hygge’ Scandinavian style. With our interiors sorted, it’s now time to turn our eyes to our external spaces & 2017 looks set to continue with this particular trend.

So, what is Hygge? There is no English translation, quite simply it’s about creating an environment that is both minimalist and cosy. Surrounding yourself with soft furnishings & items that are pleasing to the eye but, also, functional. Blogs like hyggehouse.com are worth checking out as they are specifically dedicated to the theme of Hygge & offer some fantastic ideas and inspiration.

From a functional point of view, if you’re thinking of creating a Scandinavian style garden for the Summer, decluttering is key! Spring is traditionally the time of year we start prepping our gardens for the long (let’s hope) Summer days & nights to come. If you’re looking for stylish garden sheds in Brighton look no further than the Garden Shed Co. They have a fantastic selection of sheds and Summer houses in Brighton at their showroom, or you can peruse their website.

Once you’ve got your storage situation in check (or indeed your Summer house if you want to create a beautiful garden room) it’s time to clear your garden, cutting your grass is an obvious first, also getting rid of any dead plants, shrubs, tree and hedge cuttings. If disposing of your garden waste is something you need help with Brighton and Hove garden waste collection, is now available city wide.

The key to creating a beautiful outdoor space is a simple one (as with most things) ‘Less is More’. It’s amazing what a string of outdoor fairy lights, some simple throws & cushions and maybe a few tea lights can do for your garden. Let’s just hope we get the weather to enjoy it!
