There is a desire to make a comfy cocoon to feel good in, and it influences other design and decor choices.
Because of travel restrictions over the past two years, many are seeking to escape their routine when spending time outside. An easy way to create a backyard escape is to go with a seaside, Mediterranean-inspired style with a luxurious feel, or with boho decor reminiscent of Bali.
There is a strong sense of getting back to basics as well, which means vegetable gardens for fresh and colourful produce.

Many people today want to use the outside the same way as the inside. This may include relaxing, reading, cooking, eating, working, watching TV, or even taking a bath! There are a variety of products available to make all of this possible.
One of the best ways to revamp an outdoor space is to use natural materials like gravel and stone. You can instantly breathe new life into a path by replacing the stained or damaged stones with beautiful new grey pavers.

Plants offer ample privacy, are naturally decorative, and have a calming and refreshing effect. The sound of the leaves in a gentle breeze will also dampen ambient noise. Some good plants to use include vines on a trellis or tall and full plants like ornamental grasses in a beautiful planter.
The front yard is a spot to catch up with neighbours. You can make the space feel more inviting by adding a conversation set centred on an outdoor rug and complete with some comfy outdoor cushions and pillows.
