Sunny garden with sun loungers and colourful accessories

by Fiona Galley |

After a dispiriting 2020 and the news that we may not be flying off to foreign climes this summer, we’re welcoming the cheery colour palette that’s punctuating many of the new spring/summer outdoor living collections. And these holiday hues are the perfect accompaniment to the spring bulbs popping up all over the garden. The key to getting this look right is to throw caution to the wind and go all out in the colour stakes, then stick on your shades, pour yourself a Mai Tai and imagine you’re in Hawaii! For extra verve and holiday humour mix in playful patterns, be it rainbow stripes or watermelon prints

Make the most of your staycation garden with these stylish buys.
