It may be too wet to sit out in your outdoor lounge today， but that doesn't mean Summer is over – we still have August， and hopefully September， to enjoy a little R&；R in your garden. Today we're steering away from barbecuespersonalized gifts for him for birthday， after all their not everyone's proverbial cup of tea； today we take a look at some fabulous luxury outdoor lounges to inspire you to make the most of your outdoor living area. Natural materials， such as wicker and cane， are always firm favourites for outdoor furniture. Classy style， coupled with comfort， is key to a successful outdoor lounge. Go for something different by following the sexy curves of this stunning seating， again made from wicker and rattan； extra comfort by way of seat pads and plump cushions complete the look.
Rattan and wicker furniture doesn't have to be brown or natural cane coloured； today you can choose just about any colour you want so that it blends naturally with its surroundings. Spark a conversation by arranging your outdoor lounge furniture in a circle – it's difficult not to be part of the group when seating is styled and arranged in this trendy way. Outdoor lounge furniture comes in all shapes and sizes， and to suit all budgets. Go for something which is comfortable without being too flashy to create a quiet corner to laze away a Sunday afternoon， or spend time after work sipping a glass of wine. Fancy something a little more permanent and made from materials stone？ This stunning seating area is large enough to hold an entire family – creature comforts by way of stylish cushions add extra colour， yet still blend beautifully with the surroundings.accent pillow case baby burlap sofa

A few weeks ago I purchased a book called The Artist's Way, by Julia Cameron. If you don't know it, you can read more about it at juliacameronlive. I've been taking my time to get through the introduction, because let's face it I just don't have time to read more than 3-4 pages a day these days ... But anyway, it's really starting to get good. I don't know how this book avoided my radar screen for 35 years, but I'm glad to have it in my possession now. Basically, the book leads you on a 12-week course, divided into the following chapters: Safety, Identity, Power, Integrity, Possibility, Abundance, Connection, Strength, Compassion, Self-Protection, Autonomy and Faith. Each of these chapters is aimed at discovering and recovering your creative self.
