A healthy dose of calm
Thankfully, we have been blessed with wonderful weather to offset the complications that lockdown life has brought to us. Spending more time at home, missing friends, family and our usual routines can put us out of kilter.
Outdoor space is our sanctuary – a place where we can find some headspace and take time to look around us. Small pieces of garden furniture are ideal for a spot of me time and contemplation. A hanging cocoon is a wonderful place to retreat and feel enclosed – grab a book and a blanket and allow yourself a moment’s peace. Woven cocoons (sometimes called egg chairs) come in a variety of shades, shapes and sizes. Consider where it will be placed and choose one to harmonise with your surroundings. Swing gently with the breeze, listen to the birds and breathe.
A classic teak bench placed in a favourite spot in your garden or overlooking a view will also provide a spot of sanctuary. Choose a style to fit the space and complement the style of your property - add scatter cushions for extra colour and comfort. Even just 10 minutes outside with your favourite drink in hand can help you feel uplifted and focus better. Small pieces of garden furniture – somewhere just for you - can provide the perfect place for a healthy dose of calm.
