Colourfully painted wooden houses, green meadows, flat land and water just a short distance away. The Scandinavians know how to live in harmony with nature and also create wonderfully comfortable oases of well-being in their gardens, which need very little: linear metal or teak furniture is typical of the Scandinavian look, but materials such as rattan and bamboo are also a perfect match. Combine muted colours, mainly white, grey, black and beige, and do not do without cushioned surfaces and plaids that make the seating area really cosy. To add contrast, patterned cushions and carpets skilfully round off the look. As the sun slowly sets, lanterns and pendant lamps make your summer evening wonderfully romantic!
