5 styling tips for relaxing on a country verandah

Written by Amanda Shaw

Outdoor Rug

It’s always nice to have something under your feet – we like to choose a rug that is easy to sweep off, doesn’t trap the dirt or sand and as well as waterproof.

Bar Cart/ Serving Trolley

A good bar trolley should have at least two tiers, has sturdy wheels and a good handle in order for it to be versatile to cater for all seasons of living.

Also plenty of room to fit an ice bucket, glasses, garnishes, and a grazing plate, or when used as a morning or afternoon tea station.

Coffee Table

A large square shape coffee table (if you have the space) allows you to have enough room for a grazing plater and a place for your guests to put their cups or glasses down.

Comfortable Seating

This can be an outdoor lounge, armchairs or dining chairs. If you have the space consider adding a daybed or a hammock.


We can never have too many cushions, and make sure they are in different sizes too.
