Blooming colour or Blooming Creativity Outside?

Now that spring has finally arrived and the garden begins to bloom, my thoughts turn to all things outside the home as I start to spend more time in my garden.

An easy way to refresh and liven up your tired outdoor furniture is to add a splash of colour by painting flower pots, old benches, garages, front doors, summerhouses and bird-boxes.

I like to use colours that complement the garden theme; dark greens and blues i think are always popular garden shades. Softer multi-tonal blues and greens have a very calming feel and make me feel relaxed.

Bright and bolder colours like oranges, reds and yellows really have a summery feel and i think are more popular as people look to add colour to their garden all year round.

I love to get imaginative by painting garden furniture, or creating art in the garden by painting garden tools making them an unusual decorative feature but also fairly easy to paint!

The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It's unknown from whence he came. Some say the fraction of space between a prism and a spectrum, others say he toiled in the fabled colour mines of Svalbard for years untold, deep underground, speaking only to the reds and blues, cerises and aquas, bronze and golds...
