Add blue and white striped cushions, a blue enamel jug filled with casually arranged flowers and a blue enamelled street sign for French chic fast.

If your conservatory furniture could do with an upgrade, look out for rattan pieces. These often do double duty as outdoor furniture but look lovely in the conservatory and can always be moved outdoors in the summer.

A conservatory is a halfway space between your interior and garden.

For a really show stopping design scheme, add a hint of hothouse glamour. Achieve the look with potted palms and plenty of hot pink and lime green. This is a very modern and fun look for the conservatory and is a quick way to introduce colour with rugs, cushions and accessories like vases and planters. Then put on some salsa and enjoy your tropicana conservatory!
