Outdoor Style Guide with SoFloat


Do you ever look around your outdoor area and feel like it needs something more? A space that screams comfort, style… with a dash of class? Don’t fret, we are here to help! Here are some top tips to style your outdoor area this year…


Create Shade - Umbrellas are a great way to style your home AND with so many on the market today you won’t go wrong no matter what size space you have. If you can afford to, pick a large free standing umbrella. Johnsonandcouzins have a great selection! They provide plenty of sun protection whilst looking lavish. Hands down one of the biggest trends this summer!


Bags of Beans - Beanbags are a must have! No wonder top beach resorts and vineyards around the world have them. They are easy to move around to create a cosy atmosphere. Add a few natural beanbags, combined with lanterns or candles in the evening for a sophisticated look. SoFloat beanbags use top quality Sunbrella fabric which means they last, and their beanbags float… how impressive is that!


Cushion me up - Outdoor cushions will add a bit of colour and comfort to your outdoor setting. They help to create an invitation to sit, soak up some sunshine and enjoy your environment. We love cushionsunlimited range. You can find unique patterns and colours using Sunbrella fabric… again choosing premium quality.


Blankets, blankets, blankets! Soften up your area using throws and blankets. You might not think it’s required, but believe me… when the sun goes down, it's appreciated! We love heirloomweavers nz, who offer a range of comfy, soft throws that will have you feeling as snug and a bug!


Candles are a vital ingredient! When it comes to styling throughout any area of your home, candles are mandatory. It echoes a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. There are some top quality looking battery candles on the market today that won’t break the bank and that are perfect for the outdoors. Eventfull have some excellent natural wax outdoor candles. They have a flickering flame to resemble the real deal. You can’t go wrong!


Outdoor Rugs will finish your look and bring everything together. Rugs create an intimate space and works particularly well in large outdoor areas. If you prefer natural tones in your outdoor furniture, a printed rug can be a lovely way to bring in colour and style. Fabhabitat have a lovely range and variety. They are eco-friendly and aesthetically enhance your surroundings – what more can you ask for!
