Move your dining room outdoors to make the most of summer

With warmer days approaching, it’s time to take it outside with the hip Hinterland collection

Promotional Feature

Spring is here, and hibernation is finally over – hurrah to that. As distant memories of warmer weather, beautiful blooms and dining al fresco come back to us, we find ourselves looking forward to relaxing and entertaining outdoors in the long hazy days of summer ahead.

With outside spaces now an extension of our home, the new Hinterland outdoor collection from Sainsbury’s will have you running for the door in no time. Channelling the tribe vibe, this new edit of artisan-style picnic ware and ethnic cushions means your love of interiors and homeware will no longer be confined to indoors.

Inspired by African and South American style, this is a well-travelled collection. Aztec cushions, intricately printed plates and coloured glass-effect melamine tumblers will have you setting up your own corner of paradise, whether you’re kicking back with a book or turning your garden into an outdoor dining room. Bliss.

Two-tone copper planter

Want to make a statement? Just because you’re out in the garden, doesn’t mean you have to resort to the chipped, weathered pots that have been lying around all winter – not when you can show off your flowers in this striking copper planter, £18. Warm and luxurious, it will blend perfectly into any garden and plays delicately with the light and shadow of the day.

Dipping bowls

Calling all picnic lovers! If your idea of summer heaven is lazing around in the garden and dining al fresco, these gorgeous Hinterland dipping bowls, £3, are just for you. Simply fill with hummus, yogurt-tahini and spicy carrot dip, spread out some pitta bread on a vibrant round platter and you’ll be instantly transported to more exotic climes. Just add sun.


Diamond jar lantern

Warm summer evenings – yes please! Make the most of them with romantic lighting. Illuminate your garden with pretty lanterns and string lights to transform your outdoor space into a magical night garden. With the summer sun gently fading away, an array of pretty red Hinterland glass jar lanterns, £6 each, will create a warm atmosphere for your evening soirée…
