As the days begin to brighten and the unseasonably warm weather has us all shedding our winter coats early, it’s a good time as any to start thinking about a garden revamp. After all, spring is all about new beginnings – so let’s say goodbye to winter and breathe fresh life into our outside spaces!
Here at QVC UK we’re launching our exciting Garden Inspirations range on Monday, where you’ll be able to discover the latest trends and find amazing new products to make your garden extra special this year. Read on to find out all about them and get some green-fingered inspiration.
Ever dreamed of walking out of your door into a fairy tale land? The Whimsical trend is all about creating a magical world within your own garden and adding a touch of make believe. From colourful ornaments to twinkling lights, don’t be afraid to get creative and let your imagination run wild!
We love this charming duo of Solar Flamingo Stake Lights from Solithia, complete with striking glass bodies and LEDs that will cast a wonderful warm light around them. Try placing this fun duo on your lawn, terrace or poking playfully out of flower beds.
Then for something that looks like it has come straight from a fairy tale book, take a look at this enchanting Fairy Dust Solar Bird Bath with its adorable old tree stump design. Made from weather-resistant materials, it can be placed anywhere outside where it’s safe for birds to flock to.
In our fast-paced world it’s important to take the time to slow down and enjoy the present moment, and what better place to do this than in your garden or other outside space? The Mindfulness trend will help you to make your own tranquil escape, where you feel closer to nature and can enjoy a moment of relaxation.
A great way to introduce mindfulness into your garden is with products that appeal to all your senses, such as this wonderful Japanese Water Feature from Home2Garden and sleek Stainless Steel 3D Wind Spinner from Solithia. Watching how sunlight dances from the spinner, while listening to the soothing sounds of trickling water from the fountain, is sure to calm both the mind and body.
If you’re after a garden theme with a bit more vibrancy and energy, make your way to our Urban Jungle range where you’ll find everything you need to create your own tropical paradise. From decorative cushions featuring banana leafs to flame-effect torches, this exciting trend is bursting with exotic-looking flowers, lush green plants and bright garden décor.
One of our favourite ideas is interjecting a leafy green space with explosions of colour and light. These on-trend Table Lights and Table Lantern from Luxform are perfect for doing just that, and look fab whether placed on a table, decorating a doorway or standing in any other sunny spots of your garden.
Celebrate the return of longer, sunnier days by preparing for outdoor dining, entertaining and living. The Al fresco trend has all you need to take the comforts of your home outside – so you can make the most of the good weather this spring and summer.
Be the perfect host with sofas, tables and chairs to include the whole family, such as this comfortable Cocoon Chair from Innovators, or light up your garden when the sun starts to set, and create the perfect ambiance. This Colour Changing Lamp from Auroglow allows you to customise the effect, so you can have the perfect lighting whatever the mood – and it looks great too!
