There’s no better way to enjoy all summer has to offer than soaking up the sun in an outdoor patio.
This year we are seeing a huge shift in trend when it comes to outdoor decor from muted pastels and earthtones to vibrant and fun nature inspired shades like turquoise, lemon yellow, rosey reds and ocean blues.
Whether you’re looking to spice up your pre-existing space or completely revitalize your patio, you’re sure to love these simple inspirational looks from some of our top home decor retailers.
Add a Pop of Colour with Crate and Barrel
This year, try something new and opt an exciting pallet for your outdoor space. Bright sky blues and fresh crisp greens are sure to add a much needed flare to your patio. We love the Calistoga Lounge Collection from Crate and Barrel for that very reason! You and your guests are sure to enjoy your time sitting back to relax on these amazing mediterranean inspired pieces.
Vertical Gardens from Anthropologie
Hanging or vertical gardens are on trend no matter what size your outdoor space is – if you’re working with a small balcony or a swoon worthy patio oasis, the added hanging feature will draw the eye upward and create an intimate feel for your space. We’re loving these Candy Dish hanging pots from Anthropologie made from English porcelain. Move the feature inside during the cooler months and keep your green thumb sharp all year long!
Light it up with Pottery Barn
Keep the party going all through the night with a collection of lanterns and candles. This year, we are loving the look of these Malta Lanterns from Pottery Barn which are inspired by old fashioned Hurricane Lanterns and come in a variety of sizes. The protective glass will allow your candles to burn uninterrupted all the while keeping your outdoor space looking shabby chic and perfectly lit.
Working with a smaller space this year? Try adding pieces to your patio that act as multifunctional decor – for example a benched seat which also stores additional pillows and throws or can act as a table if needed.
If you are lucky enough to have all the space you need at your disposal, consider breaking up the space to create an outdoor living area. Invite guests to sit around the fire or table but also create additional seating spaces throughout your garden to encourage movement and socializing.
