We don’t know about you, but here at Unique blog we are already dreaming about Summer and the delightful warm evenings we’re going to spend with friends in our newly decorated outdoors. So if you’re still not sure what to do with your outdoor decor, here are a few unique tips that will be trendy all Summer long!
One of the biggest trends for the year is being able to transport your usual interior setting to your outdoor space. Coffee tables, pillows, rugs and even the occasional blanket are now more than welcome into your outdoor design!
Another massive trend, that only comes to reassure the first one, is the use of bold patterned pillows on your outdoor furniture. Don’t be afraid to take risks and make sure to use the wackiest and funniest pillows you can find.
Ivory, bisque and Maui blue are some of the coastal colors that will be everywhere this Summer. They create nice, relaxed ambiances that put everyone in a good and light mood!
“One of the big trends we’re seeing is the emergence of a retro feeling,” says Maureen Welton, Creative Director at Article. “People are going back to natural, woven styles and crochet techniques that add texture to any space. What was popular in the ’70s — like rattan and wicker-inspired furniture — is making a comeback.”
FUN WOVEN FURNITURE
“We are loving the introduction of new, non-traditional colors in woven furniture”, said Melissa Simon, Public Relations Manager at Pier 1 Imports. In the picture above you can see a traditional woven chair in a deep electric blue that totally brings the look together.
BIO IS BETTER
“The use of wood and natural materials, like rattan and teak, are perfect for more rural, rustic spaces,” Welton says. Plus, “Solid teak tables and chairs age beautifully outdoors, developing a weathered-gray look over time.”
Okay, flowers are definitely not an unexpected item when it comes to Spring or Summer decor. However, they’re a classic that never goes wrong and makes every outdoor space feel happier and more complete. The unexpected twist? Make it different. Make greener, make it merrier.
“Mosaic tables continue to be a huge trend for both dining and accent tables, in materials from natural stone, to ceramic and glass,” says Simon.
