Easy Ideas for Adding Colour to the Garden

We can't all be green-fingered. And we can't all have spectacular blooms brightening up our outside space. But that doesn't mean the garden shouldn't be full of cheer!  It's very easy (well, a little effort is required of course) to keep the garden looking bright, fresh and on-trend by adding colour to the outdoor furniture and accessories.

We all know that we should regularly paint and protect our garden table and chairs, but why not make a statement with these gorgeous soft shades to make a real focal point of your eating area. Coordinating cushions will finish the look and add an extra layer of comfort for those long lazy weekend breakfasts.

Even accessories such as lanterns, plant pots, watering cans and herb markers can be given the paint treatment with specialist paint. This is especially effective as brighter, zingy colour accents when furniture and decks are painted a more neutral shade. We love this silver birch decking stain and it provides just the right muted background for some bright orange and green pops.

Fences too, will benefit from a little attention with the brush. Let your imagination run free with some ice-cream shades and create a fun, stylish corner for a little rest and relaxation. The special pigments in the paint will give a rich colour while still allowing the natural texture of the wood grain to show though.

Now sit back and relax!
