Watch this short video to see how our colours are inspired by nature and to understand how to the make the most of your garden with our Nature's Neutrals and Nature's Brights palettes.
Inspiration to make the most of your outdoor space.
This year we've split our colour range into two distinctive palettes; Nature's Neutrals and Nature's Brights.
By definition, Nature's Neutrals include all of the colours you would see in the natural world, including the sky, landscape, raw materials and water. They work as the foundation to any colour scheme and any combination of these colours work well together.
For Nature's Brights, used in small amounts alongside Nature's Neutrals, they make a big impact without overwhelming a space. These are the accent colours associated with flowersand are perfect for adding pops of bolder colour to garden furniture and decorative details.
Used together, Nature's Neutrals & Nature's Brights work in perfect harmony.
