6 Colour Schemes for your Garden Furniture

When it comes to the garden, we believe you should decorate with as much passion as anywhere else in your home! Above all, your garden is an extension of your living space and the perfect place to entertain. From alfresco dinner parties to BBQs and family picnics, the garden helps make the most of long summer evenings. And you don’t necessarily need a grand space to play around with your dream garden decor! For example, courtyards, balconies and rooftop gardens are just as beautiful for enjoying life outside. Therefore, we’ve put together 6 of the best garden furniture colour ideas to help inspire your very own garden decoration journey…

Super chic and easy to achieve in any setting, natural garden schemes are gorgeous in both the city and the country! Firstly, a neutral colour palette helps keep things simple to celebrate the beauty of nature. Moreover, natural gardens with muted tones have a sumptuous Mediterranean feel and bring real vacation vibes to your corner of the world. So, embraces the elegance of a neutral white palette and add a few rustic finishes for fabulous faded glamour. After that, garden furniture is a breeze, with wood and woven rattan pieces perfect for completing your stylish garden scheme!

Bold and beautiful, black is a fabulous colour idea for the furniture in your garden. Most importantly, black offers instant impact and promises to completely transform your space. Therefore, simple updates like painting your walls, fencing or planters black can have incredible impact. In addition, this also offers a super quick and inexpensive solution to turn your garden around in time for summer.

It’s no secret we love black at Rockett St George – it’s classic, versatile and effortlessly chic. Plus, one of the many benefits of black is that it makes colours pop. As a result, black offers the perfect background for celebrating the greenery and beautiful plants in your garden! Take it from us, introducing black tones to your garden might just be your best design decision yet…

As the ultimate natural colour, green is essential in any garden scheme. Above all, green evokes images of dense forests, rolling hills and beautiful wild flower meadows. Therefore, there’s no such thing as too much green in the garden! We recommend embracing this natural hue with gorgeous grasses, ferns, flowers and tall leafy trees for a glamorous garden setting. Most importantly, the colour green is renowned for inspiring feelings of tranquillity, and therefore helps create a relaxing oasis in your home. So, when considering garden furniture colours and ideas, green dining sets and accessories ensure a serene style statement in your home!


Glamorous Grey Colour Ideas

From soft stone colours to dark graphite tones, grey is an amazing choice for any garden, large or small! In the same vein as black, grey provides a neutral background to elevate your plants and make the colours pop. However, grey is a much more subtle choice than black and as such is incredibly easy to style. For example, grey walls in your courtyard, balcony or garden allow you to have fun with playful furniture and accessories. So, opt for a chic tonal scheme or go wild with citrus colours and bold patterns. Also, you can’t beat the beautiful style statement of a concrete or galvanised planter to tie everything together!


Bright Blue Garden Furniture Ideas

One for the fearless, bright blue garden furniture ideas provide the ultimate expression in colour confidence! Certainly, it may feel like an unusual and bold choice for your garden or patio. However, blue and green are seen together throughout nature and arguably sky-blue tones provide the perfect partner to your planting plan. In short, for inspiration on the beauty of blue in the garden, look no further than the iconic Jardin Majorelle!

Combining influences of the earth and the sky, this majestic garden creates a fabulously fresh design with welcome drama. As a result, the natural tones ensure a space that is both showstopping and incredibly relaxing. But you don’t necessarily need to go all-out to achieve your own Marrakesh-inspired oasis… A single painted wall or blue bistro table setting helps create the magic of Majorelle in your own back garden!
