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.
Scatter colorful chairs all around your outdoor space to make the message clear, nothing formal happening here!
In these modern times, colorful outdoor chairs are available in many styles, from casual European bistro chairs, to retro inspired shapes that evoke nostalgic memories from the 1960s, they also include American favorites like the classic Adirondack.
Even rustic outdoor tables can benefit from a color injection and a mixed rather than matched set is aesthetically pleasing – find painted metal seating in various places from flea markets to retail stores.
