Colorful Outdoor Seating

Written on April 8, 2013 at 6:00 pm , by

The blooming plants are beginning to show their color now that spring is in full swing. Once the fair weather is here for good, extend your living area outdoors by arranging seating on your deck or patio for lounging and entertaining into the evening hours.

Take a cue from nature’s colorful show and welcome it to your outdoor areas with brightly painted seating. A gathered grouping of colorful chairs provides a focal point and also a welcoming place to gather with friends and family.

Outdoor spaces filled with color communicate “good times happen here”. Resist the temptation to be hum drum or play it safe with neutrals and welcome vivid hues for a vacation in your own backyard.
