Garden Terrace- Get the Look

May is such a glorious month with everything in the garden bursting with fresh new growth and particularly so this year with the lovely sunshine.  I love having lunch on my terrace and it really is an extension of my home where I play with colour and textures – an ever moving feast for the eyes.

So I thought I’d do a ‘get the look’ post today and tell you where I got the accessories and furniture currently adorning my garden.

Get the Look

Garden Parasol– This gorgeous sun parasol is a new purchase from The Indian Garden Company – isn’t it stunning.  I dithered for a bit between orange and pink but decided the soft white lent some restraint as there is already a lot going on and when the annuals in the pots flower it will be a riot of orange and pink anyway.

Parasol Stand– Don’t you just love the base, a trumpeting elephant carved from sandstone.  We had to name her Nellie, of course. Also from Indian Garden Company.

Garden BenchCrocus is a favourite plant website of mine as the service is great and the plants arrive well packaged and healthy.  This eau-de-nil bench is from Crocus and I love it against the fence painted in Farrow and Ball’s French Grey – a restrained backdrop to the ever changing seasonal colours.

Cushions– I made the ones on the bench myself, but if you’re not feeling crafty, try having a look at this selection of cushions.

Bistro Set– The mosaic table and chairs was a spur of the moment purchase from HomeSense in Northampton a couple of years ago – I saw it in the window, fell in love and the rest, as they say, is history.  Alternatively, take a look at this range of unusual garden furniture and accessories.

Garden Accessories– Have a look here for a selection of garden lanterns, accessories and planters.

Plants– The Pelargoniums and Ferns in pots came from Fibrex, a small specialist nursery that I discovered on a gardening blog.  They specialise in pelargoniums, ferns and ivy’s.   These small nurseries are great for finding unusual varieties of plants.

Plant Pots–  I paint terracotta pots with emulsion paint according to the colour I fancy at the time but I also think they look good when the layers of paint have peeled and they look weathered and interesting.  It’s a cheap way of changing the look of your display.

    Beautiful! Shame you can’t just go out and buy the sunset as well!

      Oh I know! I have a bit of a thing about sunsets, I’m always snapping them if I spot a pretty one!
