For the Perfect Summer Evening : we set the stage with some of our picks (posted 24th July 2012)

"Finally!" we cry, and with that, everyone goes all 'summer'; strappy dresses, half naked workmen, lunch on the grass in the park, barbecues, Pimms and croquet...ok, not croquet, but you get the gist.

As interior fiends, when the sun comes out we get into the summer groove by going all outdoorsy-summer-house, inspired by fresh, bright, clean, crisp, colourful, flowerful, floaty, summery-kinds-of-things. Here are are our pick of the where's that Mr Muscle oven (and barbecue) cleaner.......

For the perfect summer evening try...

...Cups and plates on a tray with a (plastic) glass of wine sitting under some twinkly colourful fairy lights at a gorgeous table on a reclaimed vintage tractor seat stool with a table centre piece of tealights in beautiful painted glass jars eating, drinking and generally basking!

Happy Summer to you all!
