Nice weather lures us into the garden. Not only to revitalize beds and turf, but also - and perhaps even more so - to relax in comfortable garden furniture and enjoy your own green kingdom. But for a long time, we are no longer satisfied with the classic terrace at the house or the bench under the apple tree. The trends are increasingly turning into the "green living room", a space within the garden that visually differs from the inside almost only by one detail: above it is not a fixed roof, but the sky.
The garden as a living space, which is probably the most important trend for manufacturers of garden furniture and accessories: Simple and practical plastic garden furniture for stacking or folding have had their day and are being replaced by novelties that could just as easily be in the house. In the process, better and better materials are being developed so that the furniture can easily withstand wind and weather.
In addition to white and naturally subtle shades such as beige, sand or taupe, yellow ensures a radiant appearance this season. From soft citrus, to honey, vanilla, corn, mustard and saffron - the invigorating color makes the terrace appear bright and friendly and harmonises wonderfully with brown wood and gray terrace coverings or walls.

Screen protection for terrace and garden room
But garden furniture is only half the battle. So that the seat also becomes a feel-good place, he must not just stand somewhere in the countryside. The special feature of the garden room is that it acts as a separate room and you feel secure there. There are many possibilities for this spatial separation: walls made of privacy screens or trellises, "walls" of accurately cut hedges, airy screens or curtains delineate the seating area towards the surroundings. The area does not necessarily have to be completely secluded: for an own spatial effect, it is also sufficient if the place is a little higher on a pedestal or slightly lower in a sink. Even the branches of a tree or a banked pergola can be a space-forming element. Sometimes even another floor covering that gives the seat an island effect is enough.
A Kaffeeklatsch in the countryside is very popular in the summer. Tall perennials, potted plants and a covered privacy screen frame the cozy seating area
The design of a garden room should ultimately not be a problem for anyone who likes to furnish their apartment, because outside the same rules apply: Color and style matching garden furniture and accessories, homey items such as pillows and blankets, fire in the form of lanterns or stoves, lamps reminiscent of indoor specimens, as well as weatherproof carpets and upholstery - all this transforms a simple patio into a comfortable room in the countryside.
