How to create an outdoor oasis: Mediterranean style

Picture this: a lush and relaxing outside space inspired by the Mediterranean (it’s a whole mood).

Read on to find out how to transform your garden into a staycation oasis.

1. Feast al fresco

Outdoor dining is all about comfort, relaxation and embracing nature, so pick a set like Swara – it nails that natural look, but the clever polyrattan material is durable and hard-wearing. Or if you prefer something a bit more classic, check out the Jala dining set in sturdy acacia wood. The finishing touch to your seating setup? A rotational parasol to shade you from the sun during long lunches. All that’s missing now is an ice-cold drink.

 

2. Go green

Mediterranean gardens are known for their lush greenery, so if you really want to get the look, it’s time to get planting. Place your stems in a powder-coated plant stand to emphasise that coastal villa vibe, or introduce a little colour with some woven pots. Combining the best of both worlds? Our Lahan planter bench. The silhouette feels satisfyingly chunky, and as for that rich terracotta tone... need we say more?

 

3. Ready, set, relax

No matter the size of your space, creating a dedicated spot to lounge in is essential if you want to nail that Mediterranean mood. Got a small patio or balcony? Then opt for a set of collapsible beach chairs that can be folded away when not in use. Or if you’ve got lots of room to fill, go for something generous like our Alif corner set – the eucalyptus wood, deep cushions and built-in table are made afternoons spent sipping sangria.

 

4. Get lit

This summer’s most-wanted item? It’s got to be the fire pit. It’ll illuminate those late-night talks and keep you feeling toasty once the sun sets. Pick something sleek and modern like Fumega, or choose an eye-catcher like Abura if you want to make a statement – that matte black and brass finish will get your guests talking.
