Embrace this on-trend garden look and give your modern outdoor living space a natural feel.

outdoor table on sunny deck with wispy grasses

by Fiona Galley |

This new garden trend suggests that we’re all keen to keep our new-found pandemic-triggered appreciation for nature as life slowly returns to normal. It celebrates natural materials such as glass, metal, stone and wood, with earthy tones from amber and caramel to olive and fawn. The trick to getting this look right is to pair clean lines with lots of organic curves, be it a large, recycled glass vase, shallow bowl or a shapely stool, for a naturally warm and inviting vibe. Edge the seating area in your garden space with a row of ornamental grasses for striking texture and movement.
