Tropical garden ideas to create a beach vibe

Here’s the latest, greatest way to get a tropical garden style this summer.

Patio with decking and fairy lights with tropical theme furniture

by Fiona Galley |

By toning down the colour palette, going big but not too bright when it comes to pattern, and plumping for a backdrop of natural materials and simple greenery, you’ll pull together an altogether more serene and sophisticated look. Curvy, coloured string furniture ticks all the trend boxes and its lack of solid edges means sun and light can beam through. Choose holiday hues of warm terracotta, cobalt blue and sandy yellow, and add pops of pattern with graphic petal prints.
