Bright & Lively Colors

Firstly, don’t be afraid to add a splash of color. Keep in mind your outdoors, so it’s okay to go with bright and bold colors. Unlike your indoor living space that you see daily, your outdoor one doesn’t get used as much. So using bright teals and yellow throw pillows will be pleasant to see. We recommend contrasting your patio sets main cushion color with bright throw pillows. In addition to throw pillows, you can add color with outdoor rugs and bright colored cantilever umbrellas. More outdoor living tips are adding smaller pieces of furniture in brighter colors. Like a set of Acapulco chairs in lime green or bright blue.

Add Plant Life

In addition, built in floor lighting looks amazing, although is more permanent and costly. Lastly, bring a cozier feeling by using large patio candles with wind protection.

Wall Decor

A popular new trend is to puttingĀ  more focus on outdoor walls with decor. Accenting an outdoor wall makes it more a part of the overall space. Hence, giving you that “outdoor living room” feel. This can be achieved by hanging a weather-resistant print or attaching vertical, wall planters. We have even heard of people installing a decorative fence panel to make a completely new wall on the open side of your patio. Allowing your area to be more intimate.
