Add Color to Your Patio in Stages
Bring color to your patio's dÃ©cor. Whether you want a little or a lot of color, we show you how, in three simple stages.
Perk up your patio in stages with color. [MUSIC] Outdoor furniture usually comes in tans, browns, and natural finishes. Embrace the scheme but add one or two classic colors such as navy and white into the mix. Adding a weather resistant rug immediately turns a large outdoor space into a cozy one [MUSIC] And fun wall art is outdoor-ready when treated with a weather sealer. To emphasize the outdoor environment, add planters filled with greenery. To break out of a neutral palette, see what's already working. Here, the orange number is effortlessly paired with the white and navy in the first step. Use this key color as a jumping-off point for your next phase. To keep furniture from getting too matchy, matchy, replace a side chair with a boldly painted one. Ease into your new look without breaking the bank. Add slip cover seat cushions and fresh pillows. Punch up the scheme with a new colorful rug. Now, take outdoor art to the next level. This piece was printed on durable, eco friendly polyester canvas. And consider hanging curtains outdoors to soften the structure. Pergola curtains made from indoor/outdoor fabric block out the sun and add privacy. Add small doses of a third color. Small aqua planters atop the side table bring in just the right touch. Then, replace your coffee table with one you can make yourself. Here, colorful garden stools and sheets of clear acrylic does the trick. Finally, ditch the plain back cushions that came with your sofa in favor of oversized patterned outdoor pillows. Whether your patio needs a little color or a lot, give it a refresh with these easy-to-please ideas. [MUSIC]
