Summer is finally here, along with the sun! The winter blues are now a distant memory – this is the time you should head outdoors, put your feet up and relax, and make the most of the warmer weather. With the abundance of colour summertime brings, wouldn’t you want your garden to match? A splash of colour is the perfect way to brighten up any space – and that extends to your exteriors. Whether you want to make a statement with bold and vibrant tones or prefer the subtlety of creams and greys, we explore here how to modernise your garden and add that extra luxury you’ve been missing. Bold and bright If you’re looking for inspiration for a new, bold and bright colour scheme, look no further. White, smoked tweed and complementary red have always been a favourite through the ages. The use of the vibrant deep red amidst the monotone whites and greys really makes a statement without being overbearing. Try our Eclipse in burgundy to make your parasol the stand-out feature, or opt for it in smoked tweed with a red garden furniture set and accessories. Subtle and sophisticated However, if you prefer something more basic and subtle, the use of pistachio, linen and forest green can give your garden a brighter, natural look. This allows your patio or seating area to blend in with the various colours of surrounding foliage. Our Eclipse umbrella is available in a rich forest green, but we also like the Aurora in pistachio to mimic lush leaves. Combine it with linen pillows and terracotta planters for a laid-back Mediterranean garden. Modern and monochrome Rejuvenate your outdoor space with the monochrome colour scheme. This timeless theme will leave your garden looking immaculate and modern. The use of more contemporary colours, such as beige, black and slate, will give your garden a cleaner look – which works to juxtapose and accentuate the natural colours found elsewhere. Our Nova and Café Series parasols are perfect for entertaining, with angular lines and aluminium frames to enhance glass fixtures, stylish water features and metal furniture. Cool off in luxury this summer Whether you go for the Nova, Aurora, Eclipse or our Café collection, we guarantee you’ll find the right umbrella to turn your garden into a place of relaxation. We have a range of sizes and styles to suit your own taste or theme, whether you’re using it for personal or business purposes. As well as being eye-catching, our parasols are very practical. We’ve designed them with changeable weather in mind; come rain or shine, our umbrellas will be able to withstand anything. From 80mph gales in winter to the scorching sun in summer, our parasols do more than stand around looking pretty. With colours to complement any garden, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
