A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Summer, that most anticipated time of year, is here and what better way to make the most of the long days and warm evenings than with a special edition devoted to our own outdoors.
The events of 2020 have seen us spend more time at home than ever before and as such, any outside space has become the new sanctuary, allowing us to step away from it all, even for just a few minutes. So, whether you are lucky enough to have rolling acres of land, or a humble patio, there is something in this issue for you.
While that summer escape may be temporarily on hold, there is no reason to miss out on that alfresco vibe, as we look at the best exterior lighting designs; illuminating ideas for creating the perfect atmosphere of relaxation and ambience, bringing both style and comfort to your outdoors.
If you think your patch could do with a bit of love and attention, we have a list of some of the best gardening accounts to follow on Instagram, for amazing design ideas and inspiration. And if putting those green thumbs to work is your thing, our essential guide to greenhouses tells you everything you need to know, from construction through to climate control and maintenance, to keep your garden growing all year round.
So, let’s take a moment to relax and exhale in the midst of this most challenging year and see what Summer 2020 has to offer.
