If you do not want good weather to catch you in the act, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what to do with our exterior this season. Color is the great bet to transform this space and fill it with life.
Our advice? Choose a basic furniture in neutral tones and use color to add topicality and surprise to the green lung of your home. You can enter the color through accessories, such as cushions and plants, or perhaps a designer chair. You can even encourage yourself to mix chairs of different styles, models and colors.

Whether you have a large exterior or you have a space of a few meters, a trend that should not be missed this year is the urban garden. The obsession with healthy eating makes the leap from organic supermarkets and vegetarian and vegan restaurants to the house. And so the need arises to create an urban garden.
Not all of us can boast of a cottage in which to grow our own vegetables. However, even if you live in the center of any city, surrounded by skyscrapers, you can set up a small urban garden.
