Q I want to give my wooden garden furniture an update that will last – but would like something a bit different from the usual brown or green, do you have any ideas?

Mrs Sullivan, by email

A Ben Thornborough, Managing Director at Protek, offers this suggestion…

Adding a splash of colour to garden wood is an easy and cost-effective way to transform a garden. Garden furniture will create a focal point, so selecting the right colour to suit the existing garden scheme is important. Consider the style of your garden – perhaps it’s urban and edgy or has a more rambling country feel. This will dictate which accent colour will suit your style.

If you’re feeling bold, choose a striking contrast colour such as yellow or purple. Or perhaps go for a softer look using a gentle pastel pink or soft white hue. Grey is a very popular trend in interiors currently, so try this colour outside, especially if you have an interior space which connects directly into the garden. Protek’s Royal Exterior in Dove Grey is perfect for restoring garden furniture and other types of garden wood.

Whether your favourite is a cappuccino, a double espresso or a good old Earl Grey, we’ve found the best machines for the job so you can enjoy coffee shop quality in your own home (p.52). September is the time of year when the weather starts to change and we begin to spend more time indoors once more. So in this issue we’ve put together a round-up of the latest interior trends on the high street to make your home look its cosy best over the coming months (p.36). For even more inspiration, turn to page 20 to discover our pick of the latest accessories and homewares to give your rooms an elegant on-trend oriental look.

Your garden may be looking a little jaded now autumn is creeping in, but this is the perfect time to plan ahead to ensure it’s bursting with colour in the spring. On page 114 you’ll find all you need to know about which bulbs to plant for a riot of spring colour next year, as well as some unusual varieties to try too.
