Shades of grey in the garden

Shades of the grey in the garden | These Four Walls blog

I love using grey around the house, and it works just as well in the garden as indoors. Now that summer has arrived, I’ve put together an outdoor table scheme that mixes sleek lines and Mediterranean-influenced pieces to create a look that’s both relaxed and modern – perfect for lazy, alfresco dinners and summer evenings spent lingering over a bottle of wine.

All the items shown are available to buy in Bristol or online (details at the bottom of the page).
