With a little more than two months left in the summer of 2015, we’re checking in on which color trends are really heating up across the U.S. when it comes to outdoor living.
While the classic black/white/grey pallet is a safe bet, these color trends are sure to brighten a few outdoor parties. Check them out:
Lime – At first thought, the color lime can seem a bit . . . sour. Don’t shy away! Lime is actually a great accent color for outdoor spaces. It’s bright and it easily complements a variety of other colors you might have in your outdoor area, including white, grey, navy and orange.
Coral – Coral made the list because it works in so many different styles, from vintage to contemporary. Its versatility means you can use it as a dominant color (seating cushions, umbrellas) or as an accent color (pillows, flowers, candles).
All shades of blue – From nautical blue to teal to navy blue, blue is in for the summer. The blue spectrum is preferred by many because it can easily fit in with whatever color scheme or theme you’re working with, whether you’re going for a starch masculine appeal or a hint of femininity, blue just works. Some have even gone as far to say that blue is the new black!
Marsala – as you might remember, earlier in 2015 the Pantone Institute named marsala the color of the year. Pantone describes it as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red, marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls,” which makes it the perfect color for using in an outdoor living area. Marsala can be elegant, yet natural, so it can work whether you’re looking to decorate a gazebo with a chandelier or a pergola surrounded by natural landscaping.
