Patio lovers can give their outdoor space an instant update with new patio furniture. Trending styles for 2016 include bold, vivid colors, well constructed pieces, and prints and patterns with an Earthy, bohemian vibe. Here’s a simple guide on how to transform your patio using the hottest trends of 2016:
An eclectic, bohemian vibe. Rather than simply sticking to solid colors for cushions and pillows, opt for prints and patterns that evoke an exotic feel. Just as a world traveler collects souvenirs from every place that they visit, you can give your patio space a more well-traveled feel by bringing in bold colors and repetitive patterns. Combine bright colors with more Earthy, neutral tones like beige, tan, and brown.
Wood and wicker pieces that have a weathered look are favored over more perfect and pristine materials. Think of colors and tones that evoke nature, such as soft, sandy beaches, and gardens rich in foliage. The furniture frame itself will look subtle, but will really be brought out by the bold colors on the cushions, pillows, and other accents.
The patio as an extension of the home. You want your patio to feel like an extension of your indoor living space. Choose furnishings that fit well, but that also allow you to create a place to dine and relax. A small, simple bistro table with chairs made from wood can be dressed up with colorful seat cushions and place mats. Rattan and wicker sofas, loungers, and tables provide the perfect place for kicking back and enjoying a drink or two. For 2016, homeowners want the outdoors to feel like a seamless extension of the interior where they can unwind and entertain with ease. At the same time, this space can evoke the feeling of an escape to a more tropical locale with the right decor and colors.
Patio furniture is the simplest way to give your outdoor space a fresh look. Trending styles will allow you to create an exotic escape right in your own backyard. Don’t be afraid to mix vivid colors and bold patterns to achieve a beautiful space for dining, relaxing, and entertaining.
