Spring is a time for all things new, and outdoor design is no exception. Color is an easy way to update an outdoor living space and tracking some of the top color trends is a fun way to spruce up your outdoor space for spring and summer festivities! The colors for this spring are trending in the neutral zone and offer many opportunities for subtle classic outdoor decorations. Top colors? This year the warm, taupe-y shades, such as taupe tone, warm white, greige, and dusty pink are all fan faves. If you’re more a bold and bright decorator, go ahead and blend in those snazzy colors with the neutral tones for a pretty backyard setting.
5 Best Colors for Outdoor Patio Decorations
Everything about the picks for this season invoke the feeling of spring and that fun feeling you get when you look outside your window and see a flower peeking through the ground for the first time all winter. This year, softer blue tones are topping the list such as muted jewel blue. Two other colors that speak most to me from the most recent color selections are in the green family – moss green or deep forest green. Although they blend with the surroundings of a natural backyard, they’re bright enough that they pop against any neutral color you may have already existing in your outdoor space. Lastly, for a soft touch, consider adding a dusty pink or an orange-pink tone to your space. These colors are muted just enough that they will not dominate the area.
How to Add Color to Outdoor Patios on a Budget
How you want to utilize these colors goes as far as your imagination allows – and your budget. Use color as an accent by painting a single wall that’s a backdrop to a more neutral color like a pine or cedar pergola. Add it as a splash of color in the fabric of your chairs and other outdoor furniture, or if you are brave you could paint a whole table! Pops of these colors in your smaller outdoor decorations or even floral choices can add a bit of brightness to the area if you aren’t feeing as bold.
Another easy way to add color is to add a hammock & colorful pillow to your existing patio pergola or backyard seating area. Even that little splash of color will spruce up a dreary outdoor patio.
I know I always feel more inspired as spring rolls in. So, go ahead and get creative with your outdoor room! No matter how you decide to incorporate these bold spring colors into your outdoor design, things will always look fresh when you add a bit of color to your yard.
Have fun decorating and getting your backyard brightened up for a fun season of outdoor living!
