upcycled ideas for the garden

My parents have been visiting from Sweden, which is why I haven’t posted anything for a while. But when they were here we visited some places that I want to share with you, like the café and restaurant Canvas & Cream which is here in Forest Hill. They have a beautiful backyard that is perfect for the summer and if you go there you will find loads of upcycling inspiration for the garden (or inside!).

So if you have a garden, why don’t you hang some colourful bottles from a string, fill the garden with herbs, make some large wooden balls from sticks, change the door knobs to cute ones, randomly place some odd porcelain items you’ve found at your grandma’s and put whiskey decanters on handmade shelves?

Café interiors in Forest Hill & Dulwich

Finally some beautiful weather! We went out for a walk and after spending some time in Horniman Park we went to Dulwich, which has such a cute high street with lots of design shops and cafés. We had a drink at Le chandelier, which has a lovely decor, look:

Later on, when walking back to Forest Hill, we found this new little café on Dartmouth Rd. It had just opened that same day. I think they said it was going to be called Le Montage, and there’s going to be an art gallery and a garden opening in May
