Outdoor Living With Style

Outdoor Living ideas and decor by Gallant and Jones


I love to relax and entertain outdoors. Our Outdoor Living space is very important to us as a family and in the Spring and Summer, that is the most habituated room of our house. You will often find me taking some time out potting, pruning and taking care of my plants or re-orgainisng our outdoor furniture. Occasionally I might be found snoozing in our Deck Chairs… Here are some ideas of how to decorate outdoors.


My personal favourite Deck Chair, the Langkawi, it inspired this collection of lovely things that I thought would work in conjunction with it’s simple white and indigo colour and rustic style (I say rustic because even though the fabric is outdoor acrylic it actually looks like sack grain close up and has a vintage French feel).
