I am watching Parenthood at the moment, where the backyard is king and connects the whole family under a canopy of fairy lights. Enough to make me dig around the internet for the perfect backyard decor - who knows, I may one day have one of my own. My taste in outdoors decoration is somewhere between mid-century and a little bohemian, as you can see in the images below... If you want to see more, have a look at my Garden Living board on Pinterest.
My ideal backyard is definitely more Californian than English or French, very wild with hanging plants and outdoors furniture good enough to use indoors too. Lots of colourful cushions, scandinavian style furniture and fairy lights are what come to mind whenever I imagine the perfect garden. I did some internet window shopping to find all those bits and pieces anyway - some of you may have gardens!
