Outdoor Trends in 2019



With another spring upon us, comes the year’s trends in color and style. Bringing in certain furniture with toned-down hues, soft textures and simple patterns can change a space entirely. For 2019, comfort is key. Not only are we talking about body comfort, but total mind and spirit comfort as well. 2019’s spring and summer outdoor trends lean more towards an oasis and get-away than a place for parties and fun. Life is chaotic as it is, spring into these trends for 2019 and create your own tranquil outdoor oasis. You won’t regret it.

AIM FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT
When choosing furniture and decor for your outdoor space, think total comfort. Use comfortable large pillows of different textures in abundance atop wicker furniture with oversized cushions for both your back and your bottom. Plush (note: not shaggy) outdoor area rugs add a nice touch to otherwise overworked and tired feet, while giving the area an indoor-feel. Nothing is stress-free about chattering teeth and shivering bodies, so for those cooler nights, don’t forget blankets or outdoor gas-lit heat lamps.

FUNCTIONAL FURNITURE
Outdoor furniture should be functional: easy to clean and maintain, lightweight and versatile, and modular. When choosing the furniture for your outdoor space this year, trends are gearing towards wicker furniture that can be moved and altered to fit your space with end tables that double as storage units. Remember to find furniture that reclines, as well. After your space is done, you’ll want to lay down and enjoy the scenery.

DESATURATED, YET POSITIVE HUES
Adding color to your outdoor space is important but try not to overdo the amount of color you add. Focus on colors that are soft to the eye such as light peaches, muted blues, beiges and greys. Adding color that is too loud will spoil the “tranquil oasis” you are working towards. As for patterns, quatrefoil is in. A quatrefoil not only is the ancient symbol for good luck, but is a pattern that is pleasing to the eye for it’s symmetrical shape.

ZEN DÉCOR
Tingle all your senses with a water fountain. The soft sounds of running water has been a calming one for ages, and 2019 is no different. Please the eye with soft, twinkling light, that gives just enough brightness on a dark summer’s night, but not too much that your eyes strain to conform. This is your space and haven to do what you wish. If the sound of crackling firewood helps your “ohm” more, look no further than a small fire pit.

Exude comfort, tranquility, and a sense of calm in 2019 and bring yourself one step closer to serenity.  If you are in the market to upgrade your backyard space, and first need a patio cover or pergola to do it, contact us today for a free, no-obligation design consultation.

Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party!

If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
