Three ways to add impact to a small outdoor space
Whether you have a bijou balcony or a postage stamp-sized patio, you can still create a gorgeous outdoor space.
1. Low-level furniture
Small but perfectly formed gardens don’t really lend themselves to bulky tables with equally large matching chairs. Low-level tables with woven stools slot beautifully into a corner in a tiny spot. The intricate pattern on this gold-coloured metal table makes it a great statement piece.
2. Moroccan accessories
If any country does courtyard-style well, it’s Morocco. So, take small-space style inspiration from the calming riads of Marrakech, with hammered metal accessories and woven stools.
3. Reflective light
You might not have the space to snake twinkling lights around branches and arbours, but that doesn’t mean you should do away with a lighting scheme altogether. A cluster of candles will bring instant style, charm and – importantly – illumination. Brass-coloured metal tealight holders and lanterns not only look fab in their own right, but the metallic finish and cut-out patterns reflect the candlelight in an unusual fashion, casting a mesmerising glow around the smallest of spaces with little more than a few flames.
