The Beautiful Garden: Creating Cozy Spaces for Inspiration and Relaxation

Not just a garden and a vegetable plot where one has to work from morning till night. It has become a place of retreat amidst nature, where city dwellers escape to on weekends to get away from the pollution and hustle of the urban environment.

Even those who prioritize work on their plots know the feeling of wanting to relax and enjoy the fruits of their labor in peace and solitude.

An ideal place to fulfill these desires is a secluded corner of the garden, adorned with lush greenery, flowers, and delightful scents, where a small resting area is set up.

Since we’re talking about a secluded spot, it’s usually a small area with minimal garden furniture, but tastefully and cozily decorated.

Let’s explore some ideas on how to create such a romantic corner, starting from the simplest to the more intricate.

A Simple Bench
Even the simplest bench surrounded by blooming plants, shielded from prying eyes by tree branches or climbing vines, can become a tranquil and serene spot for relaxation.

And if this spot is beautifully decorated, it can rival a relaxation area with luxurious garden furniture.

Garden Swings
Compared to a bench, swings offer a higher level of relaxation with their gentle swaying motion. They have the ability to lull you into a peaceful state. And what could be better after work than a short nap in the fresh air?

Garden Chairs and Loungers
A single garden chair or a couple of these pieces of furniture are sufficient to create a cozy and peaceful corner in the garden or near the house. It can be store-bought or handmade, or even a vintage piece, such as your grandmother’s chair. Who doesn’t love a vintage style?

Garden Bed
Consider equipping your secluded corner with a real bed or one styled to resemble a bed. This original touch creates a true area for complete relaxation and rejuvenation.

Mini Gazebo in the Form of a Cottage
Something between a gazebo and a miniature house, these unique structures designed for secluded relaxation can be found in cottage gardens.

Naturally, such a resting place is much more comfortable than a bench or swings, as it not only features a lounger but also a table, shelves, lighting, and beautiful decorative elements. Not to mention that the three walls and roof provide protection from the sun, wind, and rain.

If you have such spots in your dacha, feel free to share in the comments how you’ve arranged them.
