Decorating outdoor spaces is one of my new favourite spaces to design. Largely I think it is because so many companies are now thinking of them as a true extension of an indoor space and creating furniture and accessories that are similar to that of indoors: outdoor carpets and lighting are a good example of this.


Outdoor lighting has taken huge leaps in this area and outdoor lamps and lanterns are looking more and more like indoor versions. Fortunately, plug in ones are not the only option and now many options are all solar powered. I am loving this idea that I spotted at the El Fenn Hotel In Marrakech.

Here they have taken simple metal lanterns and hung more than a dozen all against one wall. For their wall they used traditional candle lanterns like these I spotted at Depot; but if you are looking for an easier solution I see IKEA have some great LED and solar ones this Summer.
