Whether you’re entertaining this summer or looking for a slice of paradise without stepping on a plane, set the scene by creating this idyllic Mediterranean-inspired space in your very own back garden.
To get started, paint the lower-half of your outdoor wall in earthy Toasted Terracotta for a sun-kissed backdrop to balmy evenings. Comprising fiery red and orange tones, it’s at once warming and relaxing – inviting you to settle down on a comfy daybed with a refreshing mint tea in-hand.
Toasted Terracotta is available in Dulux Weathershield All Weather Protection, so you can enjoy long-lasting colour that’s protected against dirt and mould for up to 15 years.
Balance the warmth with a cooling coat of Pure Brilliant White on the top-half of your outdoor wall. This clean neutral colour is also perfect for displaying your chic and bohemian accessories like trendy woven dream catchers and tinkling metallic wind chimes.
Fabric and furniture
Take your cues from Mediterranean shores by layering the space with soft furnishings. Your cool white and warm terracotta backdrop also means you can be really playful with colour here. Think bright, patterned fabrics draped on daybeds, cushions in a variety of touchable fabrics and natural, and woven matts layered underfoot.
Add to your very own private oasis with an abundance of lush greenery. Select a variety of sizes, shapes and species of plants for drama and depth – an immersive corner for relaxing in amongst nature.
