Now that summer is upon us, what better time to treat your garden to a new piece of furniture and what better source of inspiration than beautiful Santorini? This charming Greek island is characterised by its whitewashed buildings and striking sunsets and whilst your outdoor space may be miles away, you can still draw inspiration for garden design ideas from the laid-back yet stylish décor seen in Santorini’s luxurious apartments and hotels.
1. Create Some Shade
A parasol is a must-have in Santorini and with any luck, you may just need one here in the UK too. But why just settle for any parasol when you can have our newly launched Havana Parasol in stylish taupe? The modern, cantilever design gives your patio contemporary style with unmatched practicality, measuring a generous 350cm.
2. Keep it White
Whilst Santorini’s white buildings help keep the inside cool, you can capture the fresh and airy Mediterranean style with crisp, white furniture to give your garden contemporary style. Our Lausanne Outdoor Chairs have a generously sized white shell, made out of environmentally friendly resin and their modern design certainly wouldn’t look out of place on a balcony in Santorini.
3. Splash of Blue
When we think of Santorini, one of the first things that comes to mind is the crisp blue and white colour palette so often seen across the island, mirroring the ocean and whitewashed buildings. Adding a splash of colour is one of the easiest low-maintenance design ideas for capturing the Santorini style in your garden, whether this is through painting a fence or a new piece of furniture.
Our Vintage Mesh Chairs in Blue are sure to add a splash of colour to your patio and thanks to their durable aluminium construction, they are maintenance-free and can withstand the colder months.
4. Create a Lounge Space
No outdoor space in Santorini would be complete without an area for lounging and relaxation and here at Out & Out this is our area of expertise! To capture Santorini style at its best, our Verona Lounge Set features soft, grey polyspun cushions and a crisp, white powder coated aluminium frame.
This set includes two corner seater sofas, one corner chair, one armchair and a coffee table made from FSC certified eucalyptus. To top it off, we will deliver it to you free of charge, thanks to our two person delivery service available on orders over £250.
5. A Touch of Luxury
Santorini boasts countless luxury hotels and apartments with sleek and stylish décor, so if you’re really looking to make a statement then our Bora Dining Table is the ultimate showstopper. Its white aluminium base mirrors the whitewashed Santorini style, with a rustic, reclaimed teak table top making this table a true Out & Out Original. It can seat up to 12 people and is perfect for any summer parties and get-togethers.
