4 ways to take life outdoors

17 March 2016

It’s been a long, cold winter and all we want to do is get outdoors. Not just for a walk or an al fresco meal. We want to get out there any way we can. Here’s how we found ways to take everyday moments outside.

A watering can, flip-flops and a rubber duck on grass.
A woman rolls up a large piece of artificial grass. Above the grass a watering can is hung from a white wall.

1. EVERYTHING’S BETTER OUTDOORS. Even showers. Especially showers. Just fill a large watering can and hang it from a bracket. So refreshing!

2. GYMS ARE BORING. There, we said it. We’d much rather pack our workout essentials in a sturdy backpack and head to the park for our next sweat sesh.

3. CERTAIN CHORES FEEL LIKE, WELL... CHORES. We’re looking at you, ironing. But taking the job outside can do wonders. Not to mention give you a bit of extra time in the fresh air before you head to work.

A roller-blind is hung between two trees with two outdoor chairs and a small table facing it.

4. MOVIE NIGHTS JUST GOT SO MUCH MORE AWESOME.  Create your own mini drive-in by simply hanging a TUPPLUR roller blind. Add some comfy chairs, cushions, and obviously, popcorn.
