Instagram right now has a plethora of deep blues, floral brights, sunny yellows and dusky pinks, but if you are unsure how to make these brave colour choices work in your garden our blog advice is here to help you with four different on trend colour and style themes.

Pink Peony

Blush pink is a design favourite and can look effortlessly chic in the garden too. Blend blush with different textures and tones. Below we’ve used a beautiful tasseled cushion to offer colour and textural  interest. Blush can also be tempered with grey to create a more masculine feel too. Blush works well and is an idyllic shade to provide the perfect backdrop to any garden for a modern feel.

Into the blue

This versatile colour is replacing grey to become one of the most popular colours in the home and garden. Use a statement piece cushion to add interest to a furniture set and team with a wool throw to add more opulence. When using blues mix with bold bright hues such as pinks, neons and yellows to create a stimulating ambience. For Scandi garden styling team opulent blues with soft whites and pale greys for a calming feel.

Red Rush

Bring the warmth of summer outside by using red tones to create a welcoming and warm space. Reds evoke richness, brightness and energy but in a sophisticated manner. Reds can work well to give your garden space a rich natural feel. Accentuate your space with bright earthy red accessories like cushions, floral accessories and even table mats. Try using red as an accent colour as this will really allow the colour to pop in your scheme.

Sunshine Yellow

Bring the warmth of the sun outside with versatile yellow and ochre tones. Bright yellows instantly uplift garden furniture and give a welcoming and cosy ambience. In the form of accessories like cushions and rugs they evoke brightness, richness and energy as well as providing a stunning colour pop. Pair beautifully with natural textures and greys. Ochre and mustard hues can also be used to warm up cooler blue schemes.
