Bringing Spring to Your Outdoor Spaces

If you want to start with coordinating the colours of all your outside areas, start by looking at trending spring colours for exteriors, such as traditional eggshells and shades of marine, celestial blues, Indian yellows and light golds.

Intelligent gloss paints are great for joinery, woodwork and primed metals, while limewash fuses well with stone surfaces. It also creates a charismatic depth to outdoor walls that can be built up with successive coats. 

Spring is the ideal season to breathe new life into your home’s outdoor areas in anticipation of some longed for and better weather coupled with fewer rainy days.

Whether it’s you painting the outside walls and areas of your property or the painters you’ve booked to help you out, the warmer months are the prime time to paint outside and make lighter work of your comprehensive project on the drier days.

Meanwhile, if you’re using environmentally-friendly, water-based paint, it will dry quickly for a smooth matt finish that is suitable for brickwork, render, cement blockwork and any existing paint finishes.

Coordinating Exterior Colour Tones

Once you have decided on the right colour to suit the style, age and character of your home, consider matching in colour tones that will complement each other and can be coordinated throughout your property’s exterior features.

This might mean ensuring that the colour chosen for your front door can also be reflected on any type of garage door, to give you a consistent and polished look. 

Enhancing the front of your house with coordinated colours, makes a memorable first impression, which can boost your property’s kerb appeal no end.

Select one of many soft pastel hues or a cheerful tone of sunny yellow or robin's-egg blue for your front door to add instant charm and personality. These colours work well together exuding warmth and a sense of spring, drawing attention towards your home's façade and welcoming visitors on arrival.

Likewise, if you have garden sheds and outbuildings, think about using that similar array of spring colours by painting them in complementary shades or tones that harmonise with your home's exterior palette. It is quite common for the external aspects of a property’s surroundings to suffer from neglect.

By picking the right greys, muted greens, or earthy browns these elements of your outside space can blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, while still adding visual interest.

Landscaping with a Cohesive Scheme

Consider painting your external walls and garage doors in colours that match your home's style and that also merge in well with its natural surroundings.

Soft neutrals like warm beige or creamy white are timeless choices that provide a versatile backdrop for seasonal accents and landscaping. In the same vein, include these colours wherever possible to refresh your garden walls and low-lying brickwork. 

Meanwhile, if you’re in the early stages of planning a new patio this spring, you might want to tie the choice of any stone slabs or outdoor furnishings into a consistent exterior scheme.

You can also jazz up planted pots with a dash of paint, add a pop of bright colours with new cushions in your seated area, or be bolder and revitalise existing patio furniture. Lively shades of green, coral, or turquoise offer a refreshing look and relaxing setting to spend a while admiring your garden’s flowering splendour.

Transforming Interiors with an Established Theme

With an established and cohesive spring colour scheme spanning your exteriors, you can seamlessly transition the same hues indoors, to create a harmonious flow throughout your home.

Starting with your living rooms, transform comfortable and cosy interiors with the most up-to-date spring colours. By doing so, you’ll add that same brush of warmth and vibrant spring energy across your home, incorporating stunning shades of citrus, blush pink or soft lavender for maximum effect.

Consider updating throws, sofa cushions, curtains, or rugs to reflect your season's favoured palette, adding a sweep of cheerful flourishes of colour to seating areas.

When it comes to transforming a bathroom into a spa-like retreat, this is easily achieved with a selection of soothing hues inspired by nature, such as seafoam green, sky blue, or sandy beige. These calming colours evoke a sense of serenity and tranquillity, creating an enticing atmosphere for relaxing and pampering.

Like before, be consistent with your colour choices and embrace the colour palette or theme throughout your home to create the most cohesive and attractive interiors. Whether you prefer soft pastels, bold primaries, or earthy neutrals, maintaining a unified colour scheme will enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of your home and ensure a seamless transition from room to room.
