How to create a feature wall for your outdoor seating area

As dreams of al fresco dining and lazy summer afternoons fill our thoughts, it’s time to turn our attention to the backdrop for our garden furniture. Sprucing up an outdoor wall is a great way to draw the eye and focus attention, adding interest to a space we all hope to be using a lot.

Living walls

What better way to add colour and interest to a lacklustre backdrop than with a wall of living greenery? Use a pretty trellis for climbers with variegated foliage or sweet scented flowers. Hang an arrangement of hanging baskets, dotted here and there in varying sizes, shape and content will make for an attractive and colourful display.

Create an illusion

Mirrors are a good way to make a small space appear much larger. Choose a variety of vintage framed mirrors for a shabby-chic look, or go ultra-modern with a full-length sheet of plain mirrored glass. Fitting your display to match your Lifestyle garden furniture, for instance, will bring cohesion and balance.

A splash of colour

Painting a feature wall can be a great way to cheer up your seating area. You can add murals or wall-art, picture windows or simply keep it plain. Contrast the colours to match the cushion fabric on your seating or a large shady umbrella. Using a soft colour palette ensures the wall is the perfect backdrop for subdued lighting, while vibrant colours can bring a touch of the Mediterranean into your outdoor space.
