The question of the protection of privacy remains very topical, because every garden owner wants to relax outside without being disturbed or celebrate with friends and family. We have already dealt with these aspects of garden design in various articles. That is why we want to dedicate today’s contribution to the design of a small oasis outside.
This looks almost like a fairy tale, but it’s real!
Nowadays it is not only modern, but also very practical to move the cozy living room outside in the summer. The strict borderline between inside and outside disappears and one tries to achieve a seamless transition between inside and outside in the garden design. This tendency is likely to remain in the next few years.
You set up a place in the garden as cozy as possible to feel like you are in your own four walls. In the oasis in the garden, one strives for the same homely cosiness and comfort that one already has in the interior. Upholstered garden furniture comes into question here, chandeliers, fairy lights and lots of candles emphasize the charm of the outdoor area. Cobblestones or paved paths lead to the square. But what makes the desired cosiness outside are the selected materials and the colors of the garden. You will find out how to deal with these in a moment!
First of all, determine the design concept for the oasis in the garden.
First you have to determine the design concept for your oasis in the garden.
We want to advise you to make a decision in advance what exactly you want to design in your garden. There are many different options to choose from here. Some garden owners want a real oasis of calm outside, others want an undisturbed reading corner. However, there are those who opt for a cozy dining area outside or an outdoor kitchen or garden bar. You could also include a fireplace in the design concept and introduce another can of rustic cosiness into your garden. In all of these cases, the design process is slightly different, but the result is always satisfactory: You have a place where you can withdraw as you please or where you prefer to celebrate with friends.
A garden bar is not a bad idea….
… or do you prefer an open fireplace with lots of seats around?

Bright colors and lots of green make your little outdoor oasis even more inviting
If you want to create a little oasis of calm outdoors, then opt for bright and appealing colors. It is well known that they have a positive effect on our psyche and always spread a happy mood. The example above only confirms this. Simple garden furniture with light upholstery, a discreetly patterned carpet in white and blue, an elegant hanging chair and your wish for a cozy place outside is fulfilled. You could also think of suitable decoration for your little oasis in the garden, which fits perfectly into the whole design concept. For example, elegant hanging lamps and decorative items made of copper are real eye-catchers that really express your style and taste. Did we forget something? No, because without beautiful evergreen plants, the design of this island of absolute tranquility would not be complete.
Lots of green plants are must-haves in any outdoor retreat.
The role of plants in creating your open air oasis
Maybe you have a green thumb yourself or do you rather rely on the skills of florists and garden designers? In both cases, only the good results count, namely the little oasis outside must always be appealing and inviting. To do that, you need evergreen plants and beautiful flowers that will facilitate the seamless transition from the home to the outdoors. It is well known that the green calms the eyes and soul. It has an enormous and only positive effect on our well-being. For example, consider evergreen palms or hanging ferns. Firstly, they look wonderful as a decoration and secondly, they create the connection between garden and house in a very elegant way. We therefore advise you to include green plants in the design of your oasis of calm. They are absolutely necessary for practical and psychological reasons!
