I am planning a fun festival-style garden party for this Summer and I wanted to start making some fun pieces to style my garden for the party. When I was in Dubai I got really inspired by their decor. What really inspired me was their use of texture and print. One of the evenings at the beach a car pulled up, out popped these gorgeous girls and they set up a cosy spot on the beach to watch the sunset. They had a gorgeous patterned rug and loads of pillows. They created a cute picnic style set up and the red patterns popped against the bright sand. I wanted to create something similar for my garden for Summer. So! Today I am starting with the big cushions. I wanted big pillow style cushions that would be comfy to sit on but would be thick and durable in the garden. When I was on the hunt for a rug I stumbled across the Ikea Tanum rugs, I decided to use them in today’s DIY and the best part is these rugs are €6 each. I also used one of the Signe rugs and these are only €2.50, even better. I also made a Youtube video sharing how I made these and I will link it at the end of the post.
