Hate To Say We Told You So: Outdoor Living

We forecast the use of bold clashing colours for interiors and outdoor products as big news back in November 2008. Picnicware and seasonal goods for Summer 2010 are all in store now, so we photographed some of the best ranges on the UK highstreet. Key trends are bold rainbow colours against white grounds, oversized florals,  poly prop wine and champagne glasses, polka dots and irregular stripes that allow for moderate use of clashing bright colours. Cerise pink and turquoise/teal shades are important along with leaf green. For accessories we love intricate laser cut metal lanterns, decorative glass outdoor candleholders, and colourful paper lanterns. Now all we need is the weather!!
