July 01, 2024 3 min read


As the summer months arrive, there’s no better time to extend your living space outdoors. Transforming your garden into a cosy, stylish retreat can be a delightful project, especially when you harness the power of colour. Whether you’re upcycling furniture or selecting the perfect paint shades, here’s how you can elevate your garden into an inviting and functional space.

Exterior Walls

When it comes to selecting paint shades, let your imagination run wild! Imagine a garden adorned with the colours of a summer sunset—deep purples, fiery reds, and soft pinks. These hues can create a vibrant, energetic atmosphere that invites relaxation and joy. Or perhaps you prefer a more serene palette with soothing blues, gentle greens, and creamy whites, evoking a sense of calm and tranquillity.

  • Bold Accents:Dark paint colours have traditionally been a favourite for doors and trims, but why stop there? Embrace a bold new trend by using these striking shades for your entire home exterior. Imagine deep teal, off black, and burnt orange creating vibrant accents that energize your garden. Shades like Dressage, Source, and Brickstock can work wonders on exterior walls, adding dramatic pops of colour that make the natural hues of your plants stand out. These daring choices can transform your garden into a lively and dynamic space, perfect for summer enjoyment.
  • Classic Whites and Neutrals:Never underestimate the power of a neutral palette! Instead of the typical cool greys, think warm off-whites, greige, taupe, and browns for an exterior that truly wows. Neutral shades like Foraging, Temperance, and Ivory Tusk can make a small space look larger while reflecting sunlight to keep your garden cool and inviting. These timeless colours provide a fresh and elegant backdrop that complements any garden design. With their subtle charm, these hues create a harmonious environment where your garden can truly shine.

Shed Makeover

Your garden shed doesn’t have to be just a storage space—it can be a delightful extension of your garden’s personality. Repainting it can breathe new life into your outdoor area.

  • Pops of Colour: Bright colours for exteriors are more than just trendy—they’re a fantastic way to add a touch of chic edginess to your garden. A colourful shed becomes a focal point that draws the eye and adds excitement, making your garden look striking and inviting. This splash of colour can instantly elevate the entire space, bringing joy and energy to your outdoor space.
  • Neutral Scheme: If you lean towards a more cohesive look, a neutral scheme can keep your garden fresh and chic. Think of shades like Boathouse White, Covert Feather, or Arctic Blonde. This subtle yet stylish approach can make your garden feel harmonious and welcoming, providing a serene backdrop that highlights the beauty of your plants and décor.

Colour: Long Weekend

Furniture Upcycling:

Upcycling is not just eco-friendly, but it also allows you to infuse your garden with personality and flair. Each stroke of the brush breathes new life into old pieces, transforming them into eye-catching focal points. This year, bold colours are making a big statement in outdoor spaces. Think fresh teals, rich pinks, and burnt orange. These vibrant hues can be used to create focal points that energize your garden and add a touch of drama. Consider Shades like Long Weekend, Pink Chocolate and Tuscan Tile to introduce these vibrant hues into your outdoor décor. These lively hues perfectly complement the natural tones of your garden, making your space not only beautiful but also unique.
