Colour Mixing Guide

Maybe the idea of matching outdoor furniture colours appeals to you, but perhaps you're still unsure about shades and combinations?

It can be difficult to know where to start with colour so we have devised a guide to get you going. These tips will help you balance the urge to be original and the overall harmony of your scheme.

We work constantly on colour, and know a bit about the combinations that create harmony. But it's even more important to tailor your choices to your living space - and to what you really fancy!

We have arranged the colours into groups which helps you imagine how colours might work together and where to use them:
