Not So Secret Garden: Garden Design StylingApril 2016
Summer is on it’s way and now is a better time than ever to start creating and enjoying your garden design! The biggest upcoming trend for gardens this year is the concept of having everything you have inside, outside. Things like comfortable furniture with deep seating and cushions, rugs and outdoor kitchens (relying on the weather of course).
Beautiful gardens don’t have to be over the top, subtle colours and fewer plants and accessories create a fresh, contemporary garden design styling…not plain. Much like fireplaces, fire pits are up and coming this year, giving your garden warmth when entertaining or relaxing when the sun goes down. This natural garden design Chelsea lets you do just that!
Of course if you love a bit of colour, lots of decorative foliage and colourful or patterned fabrics for outdoor furniture will most definitely call attention to your garden design idea! Due to the growing popularity of outdoor furniture; a much bigger range of weather resistant garden sofas, chairs and tables are available, bringing your living room outside!
Dark blues and greens are on trend for garden colours, as well as horizontal panelling for fences and screens to partition your garden. Both of which go well with stylish timber decking giving you a tropical vibe.
Metals are just as on trend outside as they are in, mixing well with a panelled timber table top, a rendered back wall and concrete tiled flooring. Spotlights and water features really give this garden a very modern and inviting feel.
Orange is a great colour this year, as almost any shade works well with greens and browns, the typical colours found in gardens! With snug seating, a wooden canopy and soft lighting this garden design idea becomes a secluded sanctuary to welcome in the summer.
So now you know how to turn your back yard from bombshell to tranquillity there are no excuses not to get outside and enjoy summer nights…even if you still have to wear a coat! Take a look at one of our previous outdoor blog posts to see what garden design styling idea suits you best!
