Ring in the New – 2016 Outdoor Colour Schemes and Patterns
The new 2016 outdoor colour schemes are wonderful juxtapositions of softness and vibrancy coupled with collaborations of textures and patterns. The choices are wide open for you to tone down or jazz up your outdoor world so it complements your lifestyle.
As more and more people are spending time enjoying their yards and scenic views, outdoor living areas have become extensions of interiors, and their design elements are just as important. Full outdoor kitchens and family rooms on the deck offer you the options of choosing patterns and colour schemes that add personality and style to your home.
White is big for 2016 – from crisp-clean to soft undertones like blue, grey, pink, and yellow. This is great news because white works so well with any colour decking, from Rosewood to Greystone, and it suits any design style. When the style and colours of the furnishings you choose echo that of your home, you create a fluid transition from indoors to outdoors; when they reflect the natural world, they bring it closer and unify the area with its surroundings. Either way works beautifully – the choice is yours.
For 2016 we’re seeing a lot of textures, chain patterns and floral patterns in fabrics; these are wonderfully versatile and can enhance any look, from contemporary to traditional. So no matter what colour your seating cushions may be, you can add contrast or movement with patterned accent pillows while reinforcing the style of your outdoor decor. Add some cozy throws during cooler weather to extend the use of your backyard haven.
Want to spice things up a bit? Be bold and introduce a contrasting colour with an outdoor area rug or create flow with a rug in a complementary pattern; either one adds a touch of softness and anchors your furniture grouping.
We can help you create the outdoor lifestyle you’ve always wanted by designing a deck that will be the foundation for all your needs, from entertaining to simply relaxing. Contact us to get started with 2016 Outdoor Colour Schemes.
