In anticipation of summer, May offers the perfect opportunity to step outside, paint brush in hand and refresh those tired and worn exterior surfaces. This month’s colour palette, inspired by blossoming, spring floral and fresh greenery features exquisite combinations for outdoor applications. By following our simple how-to’s, you can breathe new life into your outside spaces, creating a tranquil and inviting environment to be enjoyed throughout the summer.
The misty tone of Plume Grass makes a perfect neutral base for exterior panels and woodwork. Envy, Modern Blue and Sweet Pea are ideal accents for garden decoration, try this uplifting pastel trio for small DIY projects such as bird boxes and invite nature and wildlife back into your garden this season.
Fresh Sweet Pea and Envy are a cute complementary duo for garden furniture. This subtle yet modern combination layered against a neutral background in White Shoulders will brighten any garden seating area, bringing a clean finish and a contemporary mood to your outdoor relaxation place.
Use White Shoulders as a base to lift outdoor walls and woodwork, the clarity of this tinted white works perfectly in large expanses of exterior space and can be paired with almost any colour or decorative style. Apply Modern Blue as an accent through shutters, frames, doors and garden accessories for a beautiful summery colour pop. An array of colourful, spring floral in painted pots will bring the whole look together.
Keep a green theme with the zingy spring nature of Envy and spruce up your storage shed and wooden fencing. If outdoor space is limited, just apply accents of Modern Blue, Envy, Sweet Pea and White Shoulders to plant holders and pots to bring a touch of personality and playfulness.
