Best modern garden trend... Cerulean blue

by Fiona Galley |

Only a few seasons ever go by before blue is back in favour again, and 2021 sees it manifested in the gorgeous shade of cerulean. This hue sits tantalisingly between a mesmerising sky blue and a deep, aquatic blue, conjuring up blissful thoughts of azure oceans and feelings of calmness and serenity. For best results, choose dark and light shades and pair with grey steel and concrete. Fresh green leaves pop beautifully against this shade, so add a foliage plant to your patio table.
