Summer trends for exteriors build on this year’s texture and vibrant earthy colors, with an abundance of sustainable materials. Bringing the styling of interior decor to the outdoors is a major theme, making use of natural woods, fibers and raw metal. We’ve gone through our Shoppe with these trends in mind, selecting our favorite furniture, rugs, pillows, throws and accessories. Enjoy!
One of this year’s top trends is clean lines and natural colors for a relaxing and calming outdoor living space. Strong lines with less bulk means unobstructed views of your backyard, landscaping, and surroundings, allowing nature to dominate the landscape.
With the shift to more eco-friendly options, the use of reclaimed and sustainable woods is a growing trend for outdoor furniture. Fabrics made from recycled fibers is also a strong trend. Along with simple silhouettes, this makes furniture not only simple and elegant but efficient and durable.
We love this year’s options for outdoor rugs. There are several benefits for including an outdoor rug in your design. Most importantly, they protect and prevent surface area damage and help maintain you and your family’s safety by avoiding slips and falls. They also add a stylish element to an outdoor space.
It’s also important to factor in maintenance and longevity. If a rug’s material doesn’t allow for airflow, mildew will become a problem. By setting up a simple and effective maintenance schedule, your rugs will keep their attractiveness and enjoy a far longer lifespan.
A candle holder is an inexpensive and highly effective way to to add style and ambiance to an outdoor space. It provides a solid base for your tapers or pillars and adds dimension to a tablescape or mantle. For pillar candles, the best candle holders are lantern styles, particularly hurricanes, as well as large stable candlestick holders and glass wall sconces. The key is to show off the candle flame.
Baskets are a great way to add texture to your outdoor space. Available in a wide range of shapes, styles and colors, there are endless weaves and materials to choose from, making it easy to match them to your personal style. Baskets can be used as serveware and as an attractive outdoor storage option.
