As the most prestigious tournament in the tennis calendar is now underway, Wayfair’s resident style advisor Nadia McCowan Hill shares expert advice to serve up Wimbledon style in your home and garden this summer.
When the sun is shining, there’s nothing quite like spending time in the garden with friends and family.With summer officially starting on 21st June, enjoy your lush green lawn in comfort with the addition of a sun lounger. Choose a foldaway design that you can easily pack up in the car and take with you to your local park. Plus if friends or neighbours are planning an al fresco screening of the Grand Slam, you’ll have your very own portable front row seat.
The two-week championship goes hand in hand with the British strawberry season and the traditional strawberries and cream combo is a berry nice way to get into the spirit! The perfect pairing for warm days, serve in wine glasses to instantly give this simple dessert an extra special, elegant feel.
Picnicking is as synonymous with the event as the world-class tennis on display. Celebrate at home with your very own Great British picnic, a brilliant excuse for tea, cake and finger sandwiches. A picnic blanket is a practical and stylish addition, there are a number of designs with waterproof backing. Take extra blankets and throws with you for some extra warmth as the weather cools.
Tennis whites are an iconic part of the tournament and in the world of interiors, it’s a timeless shade that can instantly refresh a space inside and out and works well with most schemes. In the garden, white works well in contrast to green lawns, creating a super smart and polished look. A painted white wall or fence will help to reflect light around a smaller space.
