Painting my garden fences white or cream??? would this look too much??
It will only look too much if you have a large fence or if there is lots of white around your house. I think that small white fences look great, but they have to have plants near them to set them off. If they are just standing alone with grass or concrete they look ugly. The same goes for your shed. With selected planting, a white shed could look great. But not in the middle of a grass or concrete desert.

I think your idea of painting the trellis lavender would add to the beauty in your garden, also. I had seen another garden where the person had painted the walls around their garden area a bright blue. it was simply gorgeous and complemented all the flowers and plants in the area.

You could paint the shed cream and if one side faces the garden, decorate that side throwing in some lavender that matches the trellis. Or hang a piece of outdoor wall decor (just as examples you might consider: or

Reply:I would go with cream because it will hide dirt better then white but if you have the time to clean your fence and shed or do not care if they get dirty then I would go with white because it stands out better then cream.
Reply:Go for white. It is a nice and bright colour. I'm sure your garden, will look great, whatever colour you used.. well, it needs to be a nice fresh and bright colour. :-)
Reply:white looks better
Reply:cream is not as high maintenance
