Seasons changes to top outdoor accessory trends, so why not your backyard color palette? You can easily add personality to your outdoor relaxation by choosing accessories – pillows, drapery, flower pots – in a variety of colors to match the season and the colors in your back yard.
Try yellow, orange, and brown shades to create a festive fall atmosphere and a welcoming spot as you relax with a pumpkin spice coffee and take in the crisp autumn air. Muted blues, greens, and neutrals can set he right mood during the winter months. When spring and summer roll around, go bold and bright with colors that celebrate days of ice-cold lemonade and lounging by the pool.
You might even take a look at the flowers and plants in your outdoor area and experiment with adding complementary colors: Shades of red and green, orange and blue, yellow and purple are among the most common pairings.
Light the way
Lights do more than illuminate and help us find our way in the dark. If you choose the right type, they add a touch of magic or suggest a celebration is always ready to begin.
String lights bring a dreamy touch and light a pathway across your deck and into your yard. Whether you string them along the branches of your trees or across a pergola, you’ll create a cozy ambiance that is also functional. Place them high for a starry night effect, or run them around a seating or dining area to enhance gatherings.
Lanterns are also ideal for creating a mystical glow that suggests timelessness and sets the scene for making new memories. There’s so much you can do with lanterns: Place them above or on a conversation area, across hedges, around the fire pit, or above your hammock. Every place is a good place for the perfect arrangement of tasteful lighting.
Whatever look you’re going for -- French countryside, upscale California, or your own idea of a charming atmosphere – lights are a great accessory to make your vision come to life.
