Each year, furniture designers and publishers outdoor compete for ideas to offer garden accessories with clean lines, quirky materials and bright colors. If you are a fan of contemporary design and architecture, take advantage of this strong trend in exterior design to create a modern and colorful garden, which will go perfectly with a recent style house.

How to arrange a contemporary garden?

First imperative: bet on a strong color that will structure the space and energize the garden. Here, the raspberry pink pots echo a section of wall painted in the same shade. Then, favor materials such as metal, resin or slate. A terrace in whitewashed wooden slats will bring light and an interesting contrast effect. Cotemobilier, treat yourself by offering you some beautiful designer pieces and some original accessories. Replace the traditional garden furniture with a coffee table surrounded by beanbags and dare the XXL pots that shake up the codes of grandmother's garden. There are also many garden lights with geometric shapes, such as these luminous spheres which make you want to continue enjoying the garden after dark. Finally, prefer plants with graphic leaves, such as pink and green phormiums in pots and bamboo in hedges. A bay laurel in a variegated sauce cut into cubes and cleared at the level of the trunks will also have a geometric aspect perfectly suited to this style of garden.
