Mellow tones of green and lilac add zest to this patio. Yes, I do love a charcoal sofa! This one is in a fabulous Belgian linen (colour ‘river rock’ from Mavromac) . The addition of a wicker armchair and the marble topped wrought iron table bring some weight to the scheme.
I am a practical girl and slipcovers work a treat here on this busy patio – they can be whipped off and cleaned easily. l love the lazy, casual look they create – this huge sofa is perfect for an afternoon snooze. Blues and whites are a classic colour combo that never fails. The white ceramics bring a bit of gloss to the otherwise dry linen and cotton textures.
