Step Outside with Selina Lake

Spring has well and truly sprung and nature appears to be in full-on party mode with lilacs bursting forth hither and yon, the sound of birdsong filling the air and the welcome arrival of longer, lighter and warmer evenings.

Our author, the interiors stylist and blogger Selina Lake has turned her attention to all things exterior in her latest book aptly titled Outdoor Living,in which she provides the inspiration and insightful ‘DIY’ ideas to transform outdoor spaces of all shapes and sizes, taking in buttercup fields, terraces & decks, potting sheds, summer houses, beach huts, shacks, renovated vintage caravans and beaches along the way.

With the Easter break finally here and the whole of summer stretching before us, the lovely locations featured in this book have inspired us to explore the great outdoors. Why not plan a trip to Mayfield Lavender, the jaw-droppingly beautiful organic lavender nursery situated on the North Surrey Downs? Or what better way to escape city life than a luxury camping mini-break courtesy of Cornwall-based Barefoot Glamping for a few days of relaxation and fresh country air? If you’re thinking of bringing colour and fragrance to your own garden, David Austin Roses, arguably the finest growers and purveyors of the perennially popular bloom, is the place to go. We also love Cornish-based Love Lane Caravans, creators of utterly adorable cabins, portable garden rooms, glamping huts and vintage caravans and vehicles, lovingly built and designed using architectural salvage. Our collective hearts are set upon their little white cabin with yellow- framed windows, styled on traditional mid-19th century tin tabernacles. Ah, one day. One day…
