Neutral or Colorful Pallette:
Patios expand our living space. There sure are plenty of ways to get more out of where you are?
This homeowner decided to add shade with the awning. It adds a nice flair doesn’t it?
These days with danger of sun exposure – it’s smart to consider these options.
The overall neutral color scheme comes alive with the bright orange coffee table. Smart decorating!
Consider your setting:
Below is a very prettily decorated patio. This is a very happy space because of the brightly patterned pillows. The above patio is much more calm even with the pop of orange. Very different styles. Both beautiful. That’s what knowing your style, what mood you want to create is important before you start. You will know which direction to take, it takes less time and energy if you narrow the field from “I don’t know – everything looks good,” to something specific, “I want bright and sunny or I want calm neutrals.” Remember your environment is a factor. The above patio is set very much outdoors, it looks like it is set in the forest. The brown seating fits right in. The earth can dust up a bit and not be noticed. Below the patio is close to the house and the white wicker furniture fits in nicely.
