Accents of colour, dotted here and there as gifts and decorations, are a good example of how to use a neutral palette and jazz it up, season by season, with a changing accentuation of colour. A good rule of thumb in the garden too, I dare say, depending on your garden style, but particularly if you go for the classic or traditional look. Home decor follows the fashion world in terms of colour and style, as garden decor tends to even more. Take a look at your local garden centre and you will see for yourself. Oranges, purple and turquoise are all "hot" right now in the fashion industry. You see the same in decorating magazines, and, yes, in the local garden centers. Take a look this spring, or now for that matter. What is the newest colour trend in the landscape? Check out the accessories. There's a lot to be said for a little "update" in the home and garden now and then. Who says change is a bad thing?
