Relaxing in the garden is glorious, and we all try to extend those long summer days as much as we can. Ensuring that your outdoor space can easily transform from day to night will help you get the most out of summer evenings, allowing you and your guests to enjoy yourselves in comfort and style.
Whether you’re enjoying a tasty summer barbecue or an intimate outdoor dinner with your loved ones, embrace the long evenings within your own garden haven. Going from day to night is easier than you think, especially with a luxury rattan furniture set from Moda. Here are our top three tips for transforming your garden from day to night.
Create a Med-inspired outdoor area
Channelling warmer climes is a great way to recreate an exotic alfresco experience, especially if you’ve got the holiday blues. Throw a splash of colour onto a wall and add foliage and flowers to create a Med-inspired outdoor living area. Set your table with vibrant cushions and crockery for the ultimate finishing touch. We love the way Moda customer @kel_11 has styled her Halo corner sofa with fire pit table – her garden looks like a magical Moroccan Riad!
Get the lighting right
Ambient lighting is key to building that intimate atmosphere, helping to cast that beautiful glow over your outdoor area. You don’t want to go overboard, and stay clear of anything too bright. String fairy lights always work, whether in a tree or on a fence, or scale it back completely with table top lanterns and candles in glass holders for a really intimate vibe.

Add some fire
A dramatic fire pit is the accessory of the summer, and quite frankly we think that our gas firepit tables are the pick of the bunch. We’ve got dining tables and coffee tables in a range of styles to suit all tastes. With instant ignition, safety glass and absolutely no odour, a gas firepit is the easiest way to add dramatic elegance to your outdoor living area. Moda customer @noodlejane gets it spot on – we’d love to join one of her dinner parties!
