Who said garden, terrace and living room pots should all look alike? If you feel you need more colour in your life, forget earthenware, white enamel and glass and make room for your personal creations.

Here are a few interesting, affordable and original ideas that can inspire you to decorate your own pots!

To create some bright accents on your terrace why not paint the top edge of your pots in your favourite colour!

Are you always on the lookout for the latest trend? Add a gold, copper or silver touch to part of your pot, as shown in the DIY project above.

In this case you can choose between paint or spray-paint.

Do you like the idea of using two colours but want to give your pots a more personal appeal? Use some stamps to create your personal pattern!

If you are good with a brush, why not decorate your pots with your favourite design, perhaps repeating it in different colours?

If you’re planning on putting your pots outdoors, don’t forget to protect them with a top coat of transparent acrylic paint!

You can even decorate your pots with small, coloured, gem-like stones or pieces of glass, mirror or mosaics.
