Picturesque Pastel Garden Ideas at the Living Etc House Tours

You may have noticed that I was filled with inspiration after the LivingEtc House Tours with a couple of months ago. Well, these amazing houses also had the most amazing gardens that are to die for…

Eclectic Garden Decorating Tips

Both of these have elements that I fell in love with. The shabby chic garden decoration showcased pastel coloured bird houses that gave me inspiration for my Laura Ashley upcycle project whilst the swing in the eclectic home made me vow that I’ll have one of my own one day with plenty of cushions to make it just as cosy.

They’re cute yet carefree also. What I mean by that is that I felt completely at ease when I took a moment to pause between the house tours. It brought me back to myself, a little bit like Twinings tea haha. I felt that serenity and it’s definitely something that I’m looking forward to recreating in my own garden.

I’ve also spotted cool metallic garden accessories that were painted in different shades of blue – very quirky!

Definitely a fairytale garden scene, do you agree?
