Biggest Outdoor Decor Trends
With such limited time to live out all of our outdoor decor dreams (at least for those who live somewhere with all of the seasons!), it’s tough to pick which backyard-friendly trends you want to try out each year.
This season, we’re turning to Pinterest’s Summer 2017 Entertaining Report for a little design advice. Check out the top outdoor decor trends for this summer to help you refine your al fresco entertaining space. From outdoor party lounges to making gallery walls work, you can’t go wrong with these festive open-air design ideas.
- Front Yards Are The New Backyards – “Porching” is now officially a verb. This summer, get used to spending some QT on your stoop or porch because front yard lounge spaces are trending. It’s a great way to connect with your neighborhood and bring your fun summer interiors outside.
- Colorful outdoor tiling is in. – Who doesn’t love a vibrant color palette? For your outdoor space, replace the colorful throw pillows and patterned rugs for something a little more permanent: outdoor tiling. These pretty ceramic pieces are a fun addition to your outdoor living room.
- Tangerine is the color of the summer – Citrus is in-season and on-trend. Summer is all about warm tones like terra cotta and millennial pink, but this fruity shade is getting all the attention right now. Go as bold as painting your wooden furniture in tangerine or simply add a few accessories (like blankets and candles) into the mix.
- Upholster indoor furniture for the outdoors – It looks like people are literally moving their entire living rooms outside for the summer! The first step? Upholstering your furniture in the perfect outdoor fabric. Don’t forget to bring your rugs, coffee tables, and and throws along for the ride.
- Outdoor entertaining areas are key – We’re trying to keep the party going all season long, and with ample outdoor entertaining spaces to play in, we can! From outdoor kitchens to bars, Pinterest is fascinated with party-friendly spaces of all kinds.
- Gallery walls aren’t just for living rooms – Since we’re so obsessed with moving indoor rooms outside, why not bring some of our favorite interior design trends to our backyard? Gallery walls have been on everyone’s radar for a while now, but these outdoor versions make for stunning summer decor. All you need is a good theme — like salvaged nautical pieces — and some weather-resistant items to display!
