An Easy Breezy Sleep
A simple way to welcome the new season is to get ‘bed ready’. Pack away all your heavy, warm winter bedding and invest in some lightweight and airy bed linen. Cotton sheets, duvet covers and pillow slips are the best way to beat the heat. Choose from a variety of colourful, cheery, summer designs and enjoy your siesta time.
Made for Shade
Apart from protecting your skin against harsh UV rays, a good outdoor umbrella marks the finishing touch to any summer garden. In fact, a big outdoor brolly is considered an entertainment essential. In a large garden it’s a great way to gather guests around for eating, drinking and merry-making, and in a smaller space it creates the privacy necessary for an intimate backyard celebration. An umbrella shouldn’t just cast an inviting shadow; it should also compliment your other patio and poolside furnishings and contribute to the total effect of your outdoor landscape.

Be the Braai Master
There really is nothing that screams summer more than a good old South African braai. Time to dust off the grill, dig out the tongs and release your inner braai master!

Whether you want to invest in a charcoal or gas grill you need not look further than the Weber selection – the choice is endless and the super stylish accessory range will make grilling easier and more fun. Once you got that down, all that’s left to do is apron-up, gather the troops and let the good braais roll.
The right water feature can turn an average garden into an inspiring outdoor retreat. Depending on your space and style a water feature can be used as a focal point. Whether you choose a rustic aesthetic or a chic elegant appeal, a water feature will always draw attention for its natural beauty. It can also be strategically placed to screen noise pollution should you live close to a high traffic area. Not all water features have to have moving water; still water features are just as appealing. Try a small pebble pond to attract birds and instil a sense of calmness. There’s nothing like water in a summer garden to get your creative juices flowing.
In Living Colour
Revitalize your home and switch up the colour palette by making use of easy accent pieces like throw pillows, tablecloths, lampshades and dish settings that boast fresh summertime designs. Even small pieces of furniture like a recovered ottoman can brighten up a room. You can also add punches of colour with fresh flowers and bright new pot plants to personalize your patio, porch, or alfresco dining area.
