Daily Garden: Trendy Turquoise Deck Garden

daily garden turquoise deck garden

I hardly know where to credit this garden as I have seen it so many places (email me if you know the original creator and I will add the credit)  But I wanted to share it with you anyway (just in case you haven’t seen it) because I think it so nicely fits the Pantone color of the year (turquoise).  But also I enjoy it because I think it’s styling is charming and given that my house is this color, it is also serving as a color inspiration for me (remember I mentioned painting my garden chairs turquoise?)

Does anyone know where you can buy the over-sized white teacup planter?  Normally I would view this planter as too cutesy and pass it right by, (as well as the petunias), but in this garden both are such a charming but modern choice.  (Who would think petunias and tea cup planters could be mod?)

    Turquoise is a great colour to use in a garden scheme – we did a garden, a very small urban garden, in Chelsea London and used turquoise and it worked a treat – especially teamed with decking. If you would like to do a piece on any of our gardens for your blog – let me know I would be more than happy to assist you with images and copy. – Have a look at our portfolio and see if there is anything of interest to you http://www.earthedsigns.co.uk

    I love this – it looks unstudied, but the parallel lines of the deck and siding are repeated in the table top and chair backs, and the squares of the bench and door panes are repeated in the chair legs. The colors hit that sweet spot between contrast and drab: they are harmonious and charming. It looks affordable, comfortable and inviting, and low maintenance as well as beautiful.

    If you wanted to jazz it up on a budget, you might paint a few squares on the deck, but it might be too much. Maybe only a few open squares, in a medium blue to match the flowers. Or paint flowers on the deck to enhance the cottage feel.
