Coastal Hues

From moss and ethereal greens to aqua and muted blues, green and blue hues are big in exterior décor palettes this year.

Mixing & Matching

Matchy-matchy furniture sets are becoming much less commonplace with retailers giving their customers the option to buy seating separately. Mix up your outdoor dining set by adding complementing woven chairs, slatted benches and chairs together.

Fire Pit Tables

The upscale version of a fire pit, the fire pit table has become a highly sought outdoor accessory. From high-end gas-powered versions to wood burning, there is a style to fit almost every budget.

Posh Pillows

The indoor to outdoor transition is making its way through the accessory department. Outdoor pillow trends have grown from your standard pillow by adding in poufs and bolster pillow styles. Another trend alert – bean bag seating!

Casting Shade

As homeowners try to make their outdoor living areas an extension of their home’s interior, pergolas, cabana-style seating and plant screens are becoming more and more commonplace. Check out our ideas for adding privacy to your outdoor living space.

Mixed Media

Wicker paired with metal, wood with concrete – mixed media furniture is hot both indoors and out and luckily it translates for nearly every homeowner’s décor style.
