An Autumnal Outdoor Santuary

This year at Chelsea Flower Show we created an Autumnal outdoor sanctuary as the show was held in September.  We opted for warmer tones and materials, which gave us more of a woodland feel. Here’s a look at our trade stand and how we created this sanctuary.

We collaborated with some fantastic brands to add the design elements to the stand that really brought it to life. We were fortunate enough to work with Artizans of Devises, which inspired the woodland element of the stand.  Artizans of Devises launched their National Trust tile range earlier this year and we were thrilled to be able to use the Woodland Glade Porcelain tile as part of our stand. The Woodland Glade tile was the starting point for the overall look of the stand and fueled the mood board.

With a move to a more autumnal, woodland feel we knew that we wanted to go with warmer tones with both paint and decking. Having previously worked with Envirobuild at both Chelsea and our UK showroom we were keen to incorporate their Hyperion decking into the design.  Having previously opted for their grey tones we knew that we needed to add warmth with the decking on this occasion and opted for their oak Hyperion decking which compliments the colour palette of the Woodland Glade tiles perfectly

For the overall framework of the trade stand that created the all weather cover we used venetian fence panels painted with Little Greene Tom’s Oil Eggshell paint in Livid. This Little Greene paint is designed for outdoor use with excellent coverage and the colour complimented the woodland autumnal feel.

We teamed these outdoor living range products with a range of products from our high performance concrete fire and water products; including the new Tavolo fire table and the bio fuel Pacific Rim combined fire and water feature to give the wow factor and heat to our autumnal outdoor sanctuary.

 

We were very privileged to work with the very talented artist; Carrie Anne Funnel on a bespoke glass dome for our 36″ water dome. Carrie Anne worked with the colours in the Artisan of Devizes tiles to create a beautiful bespoke element to our outdoor sanctuary.

Preparing for Chelsea Flower Show 2021

The Solus team are excited to be preparing once again for Chelsea Flower Show, which is set to take place in September this year.  After last year was cancelled we are thrilled to be able to able to show our products again at the world famous show and have the opportunity to collaborate with some fantastic brands that compliment the Solus fire and water features.

This year the RHS are breaking with tradition by holding the Chelsea Flower Show in September rather than the historic May date. This creates both challenges and opportunities for the designers working on the show gardens due to the change in season and the need to look at alternative options for plants in bloom at that time of year.

It’s lovely to see how garden designers are translating the challenges faced by the health system over the last year with tributes through their garden designs at Chelsea Flower Show this year. These gardens have an emphasis on calm and tranquility, with the idea of these spaces being a place of sanctuary.

Solus Decor will be creating our very own retreat for Chelsea Flower Show with a touch of a woodland escape inspired by the wonderful new National Trust range recently launched by Artizan of Devises. We have collaborated with Artizan of Devises for the show this year and can’t wait to use the woodland glade porcelain tiles.  We have taken colour inspiration from the tiles, which we hope to continue in the planting set against an oak backdrop created by the decking from Envirobuild.
