The trend of improving our exterior living spaces is more important than ever. Here are the top outdoor living trends we are seeing grow more this year! 

NATURAL MATERIALS

The use of synthetic or artificial materials in outdoor décor is out. Instead, you should use natural materials, like organic cotton, wool, wood, rattan, and wicker.

There are several reasons for the design shift to more natural materials, such as increased environmental awareness, making spaces warmer, and sticking to the biophilic design!

Add touches of natural materials into your space, be it an indoor rug, dinnerware, furniture, planters, and so on. Natural touches help create visual contrast with typical garden materials like concrete and stone and are perfect to combine with greenery.

WARM COLORS

Colors are always a good idea for outdoor living spaces. Same as interiors this year, outdoor favorites are warm and earthy tones because they are inviting and relaxing.

Colors like brown, taupe, golden yellow, dusty red, terra-cotta, and olive green are the top favorites.

RUGS AND PILLOWS

Carpets and cushions are the perfect complements to add layers of textures and to increase your comfort level. To provide contrast, combine fabrics with patterns and tactile textures with solid colors to make it pop.

The mixture of textures is key to create warm and beautiful outdoor spaces.

OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Lighting is one of the most important elements to highlight a spaces’ beauty; the exteriors are no exception. Include lamps that help your garden’s general lighting and complement it with outdoor lamps that add style, authenticity, and a warm feel.

Be different and creative! You can incorporate Vintage string lights, lights or lanterns that hang from trees, or lamps with interesting shapes with warm light.

Mix different light sources and make your outdoor living space stand out even at night.

BE CREATIVE WITH PLANTS!

Think outside the box regarding plants, especially when there isn’t enough room for trees and greenery. Try hanging plants at different levels and combine them with interesting planters. 

Also, in small spaces, vertical gardens can be an excellent option. Mix and match different textures, flowers, and leaf shapes to make a bold statement. Use your creativity to fill your outdoor space with as many plants as possible.

BOLD STATEMENT PIECES.

Like interior spaces, contemporary outdoor spaces need striking and bold pieces. It creates interest, authenticity and breaks up with the monotony of furniture and décor.

It’s important to determine which will be this interesting piece to look at on your patio. Maybe a rattan chair,  umbrella, hanging lamps, or decor pieces. The trend is to make standout something special still simultaneously; it’s a way to follow design principles like emphasis and focal point. A fundamental trick to make your spaces shine!

PLAY WITH PATTERNS

The pattern helps establish energy in all spaces. It gives movement, dimension, and a motif to your composition.

When mixing the patterns, think about balance and the aesthetic and style of your space. Think about your home’s style to establish a motif that will maintain cohesion in all your decoration.

Some of the patterns trending for outdoor spaces are geometric, floral, tropical even Marrakesh-inspired patterns.

The key is to combine these patterns carefully. Try to balance them out by mixing simple geometric patterns with other more free patterns with floral or greenery motifs.
