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.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services.
