Refresh your outdoor spaces

Summer is here and it is time to refresh your outdoor spaces (or time to create a nice patio area).

Here are some colors and patterns that are perfect for any summer projects you may take on - indoors or out.

Purple Passion
We love this season’s fresh infusion of pastels, seen everywhere from the runway to home decor. Delightful shades of purple are mixed with neutral gray for added warmth. Throw in citrus and a pretty pink for contrast, along with a wild card print, and you have an of-the-moment palette you’ll love all summer long.

Spa Inspired

If you want to create a relaxed vibe, choose the naturally soothing palette of soft teal, blue-gray and brown for instant serenity in any outdoor space. We love the pairing of paisley and stripes.

Hot Hues

The intensity of Azure Blue adds welcome warmth and depth to your porch or patio. Pair it with a neutral for balance and add in a feisty red for a pop of color, which can be easily achieved with decorative accents.

Perfectly Neutral
The warm neutral tones of cream, tan, gray and brown are universally pleasing and work in absolutely any setting. Choose a great pattern to dress up your neutral hues and add interest. This versatile palette also makes it easy to change up your look: for extra impact, throw in a bright coral, fuchsia or yellow.

Classic Combo
