2. Enhancing Your Outdoor Space with Orange Accent Architecture
A captivating garden starts with creating the right setting and by expanding your living space outside you can make the most of the great outdoors. Consider incorporating orange accents in the architecture such as a feature structure in shades of orange, such as a pergola or a trellis, to create the perfect backdrop. These vibrant structures serve as eye-catching focal points and provide a stunning framework for your plants and flowers.
When it comes to creating a captivating and vibrant outdoor space, architectural elements play a significant role in setting the perfect backdrop. One such design trend that has been gaining popularity is the use of orange accent architecture. The dynamic and energetic nature of orange hues can transform an ordinary outdoor space into an alluring retreat, yet the warm tones blend seamlessly with earthy elements, such as wood or stone, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal.
Consider incorporating orange accents in the architecture of your garden landscape, which can dramatically transform its overall visual lure, such as a feature structure in shades of orange, or a pergola or a trellis, to create the perfect backdrop. These vibrant structures serve as eye-catching focal points and provide a stunning framework for your plants and flowers.
Whether you prefer subtle hints or bold statements, by embracing orange accents into your exterior designs, you can create a visually stunning and welcoming sanctuary that encourages you to connect with the beauty of the outdoors.
3. Spectacular Gardens, with Orange Blooms
Obviously green naturally occurs in the garden and using contrasting shades emphasises verdant tones and really brings out the personality of a plot.
Using the colour wheel to select hues that complement or contrast will allow you to change the feel of your garden. You can create moods for different areas – calming, soft colours for a quiet spot, and vibrant, hot colours to enliven your outdoor setting.
Pairing green and orange creates a harmonious and earthy feel in your garden when tempered with silvery grey grasses, darker green foliage, and some hints of purple such as aliums or irises. Nature is wonderful and there is a flower to please everyone, enjoy the many shades of orange from tangerine to apricot.
To create a pleasing and cohesive colour scheme we recommend choosing a combination of flowers and foliage which bloom at different points through the spring to late summer so your garden looks fabulous all season. Yellowy orange trees such as mimosas bloom early in the year at the same time as orange narcissi. Oriental poppies bloom early in the season and ox eye daisies flower until late summer. Plant them strategically throughout your garden beds or in vintage pots to add bursts of vivid colour and create focal points that draw the eye. Bright and blooming climbing plants, such as trumpet vine or honeysuckle, set to trellises or pergolas not only adds more life to your garden, but also adds a touch of elegance to your outdoor setting.
A parasol adds a different focal point and breaks up the eye level in garden design. An orange hued parasol such as the Aretha, Etta or Lexham Round Bamboo creates a convivial atmosphere of joy and warmth, bringing extra colours and texture.
4. Eminently stylish outdoor furniture designs
Get your garden prepped for these warmer days and choose outdoor furniture to transform your outdoor space into an additional room. These days gardens are increasingly becoming an extension of our home; they’re extra living rooms, kitchens and even home offices, designed to adapt to your every mood and transform your garden or patio space. Colourful bistro tables are in fashions and they’re perfect for a small garden or terrace so you can make the most of your space.
The joy of using colour in the garden is that you can be braver and more experimental than indoors, the bright summer sunlight loves bright colours. Try using orange hued furniture and terracotta pots, of paving. Terracotta is one of those materials that feels warm and familiar and is a truly timeless, versatile colour, pairing as beautifully with teal as it does with sage.
If you prefer a more subdued and elegant colour palette, use neutral colours like beige, taupe, or grey as the base and incorporate pops of orange as accents. This allows the orange to stand out while maintaining a sophisticated and luxurious atmosphere.
5. Orange outdoor fabrics for essential garden styling
There's nothing quite like decorating your own outside space; from decadent daybeds to practical table linens, there are plenty of ways to accessorise your garden with carefully selected fabrics that add a refined, indulgent and polished touch to your outdoor space.
Now that the summer heat has us pining after afternoons spent on sun loungers, drinking rosé under an exquisite parasol, gorgeous cushions are essential. Outdoor fabrics are essential for a stylish garden and don’t be afraid to use fabulous fabrics to enhance your garden design and create an inviting ambiance.
From watching the morning birds from a bistro table or relaxing with a cool drink under our beautiful Etta parasol, add orange patterned cushions or throws to existing furniture to infuse a touch of colour- using textiles is a low investment, maximum impact way of experimenting with a colour scheme. For a party, why not try a theatrical look and hang orange-coloured drapes to add a touch of elegance to your garden space.
