Pretty in pastel! While mixing patterns and colours is a fun way to add depth, working in a similar colour is more calming and looks less busy. Our favourite colour scheme for the summer party season has to be pastels, especially Pantone’s Pink Icing and Petit Four. Think pom poms, paper lanterns and picnic blankets. The soft colours compliment each other with ease and the neutral creams balance out the delicate pinks and blues. Contrasting with the rich greenery, pastel colours really pop. They are perfectly paired with warm white garden lights to create an outdoor living room effect which is always sought after. A combination of lanterns and sparkly fairy lights on all levels are ideal for illuminating your festivities whether it’s a picnic or alfresco banquet!
Trees look terrific when lit from below since the light illuminates the trunk’s texture and adds softness to the foliage. Just make sure you do actually light up the trunk otherwise you get a bit of a ’UFO hovering effect’ when it’s just the foliage that’s lit up.
