Paradise beneath a pergola

Words by Rebecca Hawkey

Why explore overseas when you can create the ultimate Italian outdoor experience in your very home.

A summer in Cornwall is unlike any other one might experience across Great Britain. Our crystal clear azure seas, in harmony with the golden sands that surround this coast, makes for an almost paradisiacal haven where you can forget your troubles and enjoy the day ahead. It only gets better when you retire to your abode for an evening under the stars, filled with good food and refreshing beverages shared with family and friends. So why not do so in style?

Jamie Watts, founder of Sail Shades Direct and Pergolas Direct, recently added Contemporary Outdoor Living to his repertoire, providing those across the Duchy and beyond with a trifecta of products that create the ultimate luxury outdoor dining solution. As we roll full steam ahead into another sizzling Cornish summer season, Jamie and his team of expert designers and fitters are on hand to help those in need of a little garden refresh, finding their customers the best outdoor kitchens and covering the design and installation of both furniture and appliances, not to mention an outdoor pergola to ensure plentiful shade when that sun gets a little too spicy. Jamie himself has spent years designing and installing bespoke outdoor shelters for clients up and down the county, which is where he noticed a gap in the market: clients in search of a one-stop shop for all of their outdoor kitchen needs. Fuelled by an entrepreneurial spirit, Jamie picked up the phone and dialled his contacts living in the birthplace of outdoor dining, Italy. Here he was able to source a plethora of high-quality Italian kitchens that are beautifully designed and expertly fitted to any space. Jamie says: “At the core of everything we do at Contemporary Outdoor Living, is good customer service and outstanding quality. We want every step of the journey to be as enjoyable for you as the investment deserves it to be. After all, any home improvement should be an exciting one.”

Jamie and the team consistently live up to this standard of excellence, and pride themselves on delivering an outdoor experience that’s nothing short of perfect. So, as the sun starts to set, and the day at the beach comes to an end, those that have their dream outdoor space to retreat back to thanks to the hard work of those at Contemporary Outdoor Living, are going to be relaxing in style.
