When it comes to patio design you’re going to see a lot inspiration out there. You’ll see everything from Beachy Paradise to Rambling Rustic. But what if that’s not your style? What if you want a patio with graphic prints in bold and bright colors?
This season, blazing colors are hot, hot, hot. Accents pieces in vivid prints are waking up peaceful patios. While this look isn’t for everyone, incorporating one or two of these fun furniture pieces can add an unexpected and youthful surprise to your patio décor.
Indoors and in tight spaces, brightly painted walls can sometimes be overwhelming, so, it’s no surprise that some people shy away from using bold colors. However, with no walls to worry about outdoors, you’ll find it much easier to incorporate these lively elements into your patio design.
Because color theory can get somewhat confusing, the easiest thing to remember when working with bold colors is that they should be divided into rich jewel tones (ruby, emerald and sapphire) and primary colors (true red, yellow or blue) So, chose whichever group appeals to you most and stick with it.
Still unsure? Try bringing in one boldly colored accessory, fabric or rug at first top get a feel for vivid outdoor living.
The Bold and the Beautiful
Try adding a pop of color in an unexpected way with a classic hounds tooth pattern garden stool. Made from a sturdy resin/styrene/fiberglass material, they can be used as tables or can serve as extra seating.
Because so many patio sets are neutral in color, this bright, floral motif rug is a perfect way to bring the colors of the garden up onto the patio. It is comprised of multiple colors so chances are, if your patio furniture is a neutral color, this will go with it. This hand hooked rug constructed of synthetic fibers is both all-weather durability and easy to keep clean.
Hold court in our own backyard! You’ll be hard pressed to find more of a statement piece than this chair. Designers Graziano Moro and Renato Pigatti created these Alice in Wonderland inspired oversized (fits two) garden chairs. Available in 11 primary colors.
Imagine your guests when they get a load of these for the first time! Designed to work as small stools, ottomans, or coffee tables, these are perfect for parties on the patio or in the garden; or any space that could use some additional lighting.
It doesn’t get much bolder than a broad black and white stripped patio umbrella.
So be bold – take a leap with your patio décor and include elements that not only stand out, but make their own unique statement.
