How To Bring The Inside, Out and Use Rice DK to Create A Colourful Useful Entertaining Space!
Last week we took the outside in, learning how to incorporate nature into our decorating style. Now, we want to take the indoors out with Rice DK. No matter the season!
Charlotte brings happiness to everyday outdoor life by showing how outdoor spaces can offer a change of pace from the humdrum of your day-to-day.
This book provides a colourful collection of outdoor DIY projects, decorating and styling solutions. Who could want more?!
I fell in love with so many projects offered by this book that I wanted to share them with you. Of course, I also spent a small fortune on Rice DK products, but could you blame me? I had to share a few of the ideas with you.
How to bring the inside out:
Adding a touch of paint:
Old furniture, plate racks drilled to the wall outside, paint tubs, and even tyre swings can change your garden completely. If you want to go bold, you could paint the shed, fence or garage door.
There have been so many colourful DIY projects floating around Pinterest this summer. It’s apparently catching on!
You can make a lot of fabulous DIY games via the tutelage of Charlotte. Some of the games projects include;
- Tyre Swing
- Ring Toss
- Noughts and Crosses
Add some doodles
Or painted shapes to terracotta pots and wrap with coloured twines or adorn with embellishments. Charlotte suggests an old drawer with new (old) legs and a lick of paint would make a great planter.
The painted terracotta pots are adorable! I would love to walk outside to a deck full of wonderful potted plants with fully decorated pots. Ribbons et al.
3. Create outdoor rooms.
Using your favourite pillows and blankets; you can transform a conservatory or patio space into a bright, colourful, happy haven. In the header image for this section, I’ve shared the Autumn shelter project with you. It looks so comfortable and cosy
4. Take the textiles out.
Use vintage sheets or linens to build a fort, somewhere to relax and play.

5. Entertain Outside!
Gather your favourite crockery and colourful kitchen accessories to adorn your table. You could hang decorated jar lanterns from trees. Don’t forget to bring blankets for guests when the weather gets chilly and add appropriate outdoor lighting!
I’m crazy about the paper fans hanging from trees. The brand Talking Tables have brought those back in a big way!
Favourite Rice DK Stockists
I’m serious when I tell you that this book ended up costing me a fortune. Because I obviously needed the floor mat and the coral coloured everything, and some of that butterfly print melamine! Oooh. I thought it would be a good idea to share my favourite places to purchase RICE DK products in the UK.
I really am feeling slightly overwhelmed with the sheer amount of products I want to buy from the Autumn Winter 2016 Range. That Eiffel tower lamp base has my name written all over it. And most of the baskets too.
The Book is fabulous and I highly recommend it. A great coffee table book too.
Until next time
Love and smooches!
