Grey and white patio with a pop of neon

Grey and white patio with a pop of neon

Give your outdoor space a refresh with a simple, modern colour combo. Grey and white is sophisticated and fresh on its own but when a pop of lime green is thrown in, it really feels like summer. Upcycle a tired patio bench by giving it a lick of paint in light grey. Adding an upholstered seat and cushions will give the space a relaxed feel – perfect for winding down on a warm evening.

Garden deck with citrus accents

Garden deck with citrus accents

Treat a garden dining area the same way you would any room in the house – with a little love and attention. Mixing eras can make for an informal, welcoming space. Here a much-loved table is paired with modern classic chairs in a zingy shade of chartreuse green, which looks vibrant among verdant planting. Although the styles are different, the shared materials and forms mean the furniture looks great together.

Casual grey-and-green courtyard garden

Casual grey-and-green courtyard garden

Extend upon a home extension into the garden with a neat, yet casual courtyard. Update a picnic bench with soft accessories – such as this cute hedgehog patterned table cloth and cushions – for a more personalised outdoor dining area, and tie the scheme together with toning paintwork on the walls. Chic and cheerful.

Garden building with orange wicker garden furntiure

A garden building can be anything you like: a sitting area, home office, kitchen extension or play room. Whatever you decide, whitewashed walls, floors and ceiling make a perfect backdrop for colourful furniture and accessories. In this space, red retro pieces open out on to the garden, where a bright orange garden furniture set takes centre stage.

Garden patio with outdoor sofas and fire pit

Garden patio with outdoor sofas and fire pit

Turn your patio into a social space with outdoor garden sofas. Two modular sofas have been positioned strategically to enjoy this beautifully landscaped garden. A rustic firepit placed between the two means you can enjoy the outdoors and views beyond as the sun sets. The combination of plum, pink and blue cushions adds a welcome pop of colour and picks out purple tones of the lavender shrubs and alliums in the garden bed behind.

Modern garden with reclaimed seating

This garden might be small, but the fact that it’s south-facing means it can be a veritable sun trap. An outdoor living area has been created to make the most of it, with repurposed pallets painted and upcycled with throws and cushions. Gravel is a neat solution in a small space, adding a nice finish to a defined area while helping to cut down on weeds. Lanterns add a touch of atmospheric light come evening.
