  •  Handy Hints for Getting your Garden Autumn Ready!

    Autumn is a magical time of year where the landscape colours transform from lush greens to beautiful oranges, flaming reds and yellows.  Let’s face it, the typical garden never looks that pristine in Autumn but now is the time to start to think about how to prepare your garden for the winter.

    Repair and Protect Fencing

    Now is a good time to start looking at how you can create a robust environment which will last through the winter months. Make sure your garden fencing is in good nick and able to survive Autumn’s strong blustery winds.   For instance, check the fence for any lose panels and repair fence posts now to avoid any potential problems caused by severe winter weather.

    Store Away Garden Furniture

    Over the past couple of years,’ the garden has become an extension of the home and people are investing more money in garden furniture and outdoor accessories. Don’t leave these items out in the garden left to the elements. You will find that metal and even barbeques tend to rust and become discoloured.  If you have a smaller outdoor space then why not consider small sheds or garden boxes to store items away. Also, consider purchasing protective covers for your furniture and outdoor equipment.

    Keep your Home Mud Free

    Don’t you just love it when your hallway is plastered with muddy footprints? One way to keep mucky shoes and boots at bay is to invest in a welly boot store, these can come in various guises.  Metal outdoor storage units or more closed storage cupboards as seen below and can sit outside all year long.

    Tidy up the grass

    Make sure that you keep weeds at bay during the Autumn months and keep the grass cut – although it doesn’t grow as fast as during the Summer months – it’s worth just giving it the odd cut now and again. Trim back perennials that have turned and also don’t forget to plant your spring bulbs; daffodils, for instance, should be planted mid-October just before the ground freezes over.

    Shed Loads of Space

    Sheds are fast becoming another “must have” garden accessory.  People are opting for custom made structures that can also double up as an alternative room.   Whatever size or type of shed you have, make sure your garden shed is in good repair and store away your garden equipment neatly so that you maximize the interior space.  Use hook or nails to hang tools from our introduce shelving to store items away.   If you have a smaller garden then why not invest in a compact shed, that would fit into a smaller garden space but still provide you with adequate storage.

    Log Store

    As many of us are now choosing to heat our homes over the winter months by using a wood burner or an open fire, preparing you wood in ahead of the colder months is a must!

    Storage that has open sides is the best way to keep your wood in good condition, as it allows the air to circulate around it. Log storage sheds are available in a variety of sizes so whether you heat your home solely using a log burner or just have the occasional fire you can be prepared.

    Having a wood store close to your home in a handy spot for topping up you log basket will prove to be a blessing on those dark nights. It can be hard work moving heavy logs from a woodpile each day and can mean several trips back a forth. Logs that are neatly stored close to your home will be far more ideal. Make sure that you have good access to your log storage and that it’s not obstructing any other paths or gates as once stocked up it will be in position for some time.

  • Have Fun in The Sun

    Have Fun in the Sun This Summer

    The sun is out, the holidays are nearly here, what better way to enjoy some well-deserved downtime than relaxing in the garden, reading a book or enjoying an ice-cold drink with friends.

    Set out a space to relax

    Having an outdoor space to enjoy during those long summer months is important, not only for one's well-being but essential if you’re planning on entertaining.  There are many different types of rattan furniture sets available on the market so choose one that works for you.

    Rattan furniture can enhance any outdoor space and provide guests with a comfy sitting area. Corner rattan sofas that fit easily into an angle within the garden, make a stylish feature and can provide the homeowner with another “room” in which to entertain during the Summer.

    Rattan Corner Sofa

    Cube rattan dining sets are great for smaller spaces where chairs can be neatly pushed under the table and stored away when not in use.

    Bigger pieces, like corner sofa sets, are ideal for large roomy outdoor spaces whilst modular rattan garden furniture sets are ideal for those that want to add some versatility to the garden.

    Colourful Pink String Bistro Set

    Accessories

    In order to add that vital pop of colour a garden, think about furnishing outdoor spaces with colourful plants, rattan planters, and garden art.

    Stylish Rattan Lanterns

    Rattan effect LED lanterns are great for providing luminous glowing light throughout those warm summer evening’s, brightly patterned cushions can provide a welcome punch of colour when placed on rattan furniture. Colourful bistro sets can also help express a particular personality but also add interest to a garden along with garden statues, hanging baskets and gorgeous pot plants.

    Funky Bright Outdoor Cushions

    Enjoy your garden this summer and have fun!

  • Spring Clean Your Home

    Now is the time to start afresh and clear out the clutter that has amalgamated over the past year.  As William Morris wisely pointed out, "have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

    We have a range of great storage ideas that will help you keep your house neat and tidy. For instance, if you have a small guest room but do not have space to fit a wardrobe why not consider a simple hanging rail. We have two options available, both ornate in look and feel but they would not only enhance the space but also add some elegant charm to a room.

    Shoe Storage
    Vintage Style Clothes Rail

    If you need more storage space in the bedroom then why not consider our pair of pretty mirrored bedside tables with crystal handles. They'd definitely add some film star glamour to the bedroom.

  • Sue Ryder Online Shop Spring Collection Photographic Shoot

    There’s nothing we enjoy more than taking some of our most vibrant and exciting products and creating fantastic new lifestyle imagery for the Sue Ryder Online shop. We regularly plan photographic shoots throughout the year, especially when we need to promote our exclusive furniture collections.

    Sue Ryder Occasional Chairs

     

    On 8th March 2017, the Online shop team, armed with various props, with cars stuffed full of chairs, tables and various other bits and pieces, including the odd drill to assemble our furniture, headed off to our location at Thorpe Hall, in Peterborough.

    Thorpe Hall Peterborough

     

    Thorpe Hall at Longthorpe in the city of Peterborough, is a beautiful Grade 1 listed building, built by Peter Mills between 1653 and 1656, for the Lord Chief Justice, Oliver St John. After a period as a hospital, the hall is currently used as a hospice for Sue Ryder.

    With its grand façade, lofty interior spaces complete with huge windows, high ceilings, and neutral backdrops, we decided that this was the perfect location for our latest photographic shoot.

    Decorative Lanterns

     

    Luckily the weather was on our side and apart from a few drops of rain, we managed to assemble the furniture using our trusty hand-held drills but also shoot most of our new garden furniture and statues outside in the impressive landscaped gardens.

    Brand new kids furniture

     

    The whole process is important to us – Planning – Shooting – Editing – all of these steps are essential when it comes to successful product photography.

    Garden Bistro Three Piece Bistro Set

     

    A great working relationship with a professional photographer is an absolute “must” especially if the objective is to achieve beautiful aspirational photographs. We were, therefore, incredibly lucky to have acquired the expertise of Northamptonshire Lifestyle and Wedding photographer Georgi Mabee who joined the team for the day. Her years of experience really helped us focus on what we wanted to achieve for every shot and because of this detailed planning, we managed to get through all seventy shots within the day.

    Pretty Wicker Storage Bench

     

    After several hours of unpacking boxes, shifting key pieces of furniture into the perfect position and then enhancing the shot with the right props we managed to complete the entire shoot by 4.00 pm!

    Take a look at our new lifestyle shots on the Sue Ryder Online Shop site.

  • Get the look - Scandi Style

    Scandinavian interior design combines simplicity, utility, and beauty with pared back style centered around warm functionality, clean lines, and effortless craftsmanship. The use of light is important within this genre as are muted tones,  natural materials, and minimal fuss.

    Scandi Style Interior Example of Scandi Style Interior

    Create a fresh, vibrant and contemporary feel in your home this Spring with our range of Scandi style furniture. The Stockholm furniture collection is designed for modern living, offering style and practicality with a sympathetic minimalistic approach.

    Scandi Round Tables Scandi Round Tables

    The inspiration for our Stockholm collection came from the current fascination with Scandi interiors. We wanted to create a co-ordinated furniture range that could easily translate into any interior space but also provides the eye with a point of interest.

    Sandi bedside tables Scandi bedside tables

    The trend for a bold geometric pattern is still strong within the home and with this in mind, we opted for a fresh and zesty bold geometric design on a sleek modern-shaped chair. If you want a room that looks like it's hopped off the page of a magazine then adding a pop of colour and bold pattern are absolutely key to nailing this look.

    Retro Scandi Chair Scandi Geometric Chair

    The use of natural wooden legs across all pieces within the range creates a consistent look and feel. You can soften up the look by introducing rugs, a great way to add an accent colour, perhaps taken from the chair, whilst adding a level coziness and comfort to your home.

    Have a theme in mind

    One way to make the festive season go more smoothly is to have a theme in mind well before the big day. This year, instead of opting for the traditional Christmas colour palette of reds and greens, why not think about a more natural colour scheme. There seems to be a growing shift towards neutral décor so think about decorating your living room or hallway with natural materials.

    Large-white-wishing-tree

    To achieve that subtle festive Nordic look, adorn your living space with cinnamon sticks tied with string, dried fruit, willow branches and as a finishing touch why not place our gorgeous  hessian Santa sacks underneath your Christmas tree.

  • Sue Ryder Shop On Location!

    Nestled away in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, The Old Coach House is situated in the grounds of the historic Bragborough Hall and has been lovingly restored into a luxurious holiday let - the perfect location for our latest product photo shoot.

    The beautiful four bedroom Coach House features a sunny patio area with an eight seater table, perfect for families or a group of friends to enjoy a special break together.

    We contacted the owners to see if they could accommodate us and when we told them about our fantastic cause they were more than happy to help, allowing us to use the accommodation to provide the perfect backdrop for our home and furniture ranges - even supplying refreshments throughout the day!

    Amy Cooksey, E-commerce Manager at Sue Ryder says, "First impressions really count when selling online and ‘lifestyle’ images are an essential component when trying to stand out from the crowd and attract customers."

    ‘We have some fantastic country-style products and were looking for a character property to showcase them in. When we found The Old Coach House in Braunston, a stone’s throw from our online shop HQ, we couldn’t believe our luck! Having fantastic imagery makes it much easier for our customers to visualise our products in their own homes."

    For weeks prior to the shoot we’d been preparing, ensuring samples were here and planning the types of shots we wanted to get on the day.

    "There are many different content areas on the site that need updating on a regular basis and so we have to ensure we have multiple images in varying sizes and styles to ensure the site stays looking fresh and interesting."

    When the day of the shoot came around the weather was changeable to say the least.

    ‘We prioritised indoor shots first making use of the four double bedrooms and spacious living/dining areas. By the afternoon we took to the great outdoors and the pretty gravelled garden with its lush green planting.’

    All in all, once it was time to call it a wrap we’d all grown quite fond of our surroundings and wished we were staying for the week! We’re looking forward to heading back there soon to shoot our stunning Christmas ranges.

    All of the products you see here are available via the online shop (and some of our retail shops too) and you can book your stay at The Old Coach House online here.
