Patio lovers can transform the look of their patio design this fall by following the hottest trends. Taking care of your home’s landsape design in the autumn will allow you to enjoy it throughout the season. Here are some of the top trends for autumn 2015 that you can incorporate in your outdoor living space this year:
Warm and Welcoming Harvest Decor
Bring the colors and textures of the season right onto your patio by decorating with features like corn stalks, bales of hay, colorful pumpkins and gourds, and beautiful hardy mums. Perhaps nothing says fall harvest more than a big pumpkin, so don’t be afraid to choose a large one to feature, surrounded by smaller ones. These natural elements will help to remind you of the season every time you step outside, no matter what the temperature feels like.
Since you likely won’t be doing as much outdoor entertaining in the fall as you would in the summer, keep the furnishings to a minimum. Enjoy cozy and simple comforts like wooden rocking chairs or a sturdy porch swing or glider. If possible, store some of the other furniture pieces away in preparation for the winter. A dining table is a great piece to keep out if you plan on serving up some warm fall comfort foods. Make the fire pit front and center as a place to gather around for warmth and relaxation. Add a few flannel blankets and toss some extra pillows around, too.
Set the Mood with Lighting
Since the sun sets earlier in the fall, you’ll need good lighting to enjoy the space in the autumn. Focus on soft, warm lights, like candles in lanterns, and strands of white twinkle lights. Choose a dimmer bulb for light fixtures so that you can take in that warm glow of a crisp fall evening. Lighting will really help to set the mood and create a cozy and inviting outdoor space that your family will love.
Patio lovers can still soak up every minute of the beautiful weather in the fall. It’s the perfect time to make your outdoor living space warm, comfortable, and cozy.
