Outdoor Ideas and Inspiration. I’m so excited to share my most recent chat with Wayfair and bring you The Outdoor Trend Watch, a collection of advice, inspiration, and trends, and product picks for the upcoming season. As I get ready myself for a Summer full of fun and family time, I wanted to bring you along and give you Outdoor ideas and inspiration, to make the best out of it.
Wayfair: With warm weather officially here, everyone wants to spend most of their time outside. What do you enjoy doing most when you’re outside getting fresh air?
[Paola]: I enjoy having my morning coffee on our Patio! Nothing like spending time outside while enjoying an extension of your home that has been curated to fit your family’s needs and lifestyle.
Wayfair: What are the top three pieces you like to incorporate in your outdoor space in order to make it feel cozy?
[Paola]: There are 3 pieces that will always make your outdoors look cozy and stylish! Greenery, outdoor furniture and pillows. Keep an eye out for furniture that serves multiple functions. Faux or real greenery allows you to make your outdoors space into your very own oasis. And pillows, not only does it tell a story about your decor style, it also gives that cozy touch.
Wayfair: Moving on to design aesthetics, which color palettes are speaking to you this season?
[Paola]: Going through my very own patio refresh myself, the colors that are speaking to me right now are earthy tones combined with gray and black. The idea behind this concept is to bring the indoors, outdoors. Let your patio be an extension of your home where family and friends can still feel welcomed to, without compromising comfort and functionality.
Wayfair: Are there any outdoor design trends that are really standing out to you right now?
[Paola]: Yes! One that I consider my favorite is the outdoor kitchen and dining room area. I am not talking about just having a grill outside. I am talking about the whole 9 yards. Having a designated kitchen space and an eating area, turns your Patio into another dining room just outdoors. Longer days means more sunshine and cool weather to enjoy with the family while getting so much needed fresh air.
Summer is around the corner and it is the perfect time to gear up for fun times outdoors. I have gathered up great finds for your next Outdoors refresh! From gazebos to fire pits to conversation sets, Wayfair has it all and at the best prices!
Pro tip: When thinking about refreshing your Patio, think about adding these three main items to instantly elevate the look. A conversation set where you can sit down and enjoy the fresh air. Pots and plants, to soften the look of your patio. And last but not least, some shade. When overhangs are not enough, umbrellas are the way to go to add very much-needed shade. It will also make your space look cozy and cohesive.
For those looking for a patio refresh for spring and summer 2021, check out the selection at Wayfair:
My favorite outdoor trend is turning your Patio into an extension of your home. Adding items that will scream cozy is the way to go. End tables, outdoor furniture, throw blankets, and coffee tables make your space look and feel like home. I love having the ability to cook family meals and having dinner time while enjoying great weather. Is like having your own resort night right at the comfort of your home! To top it off, add statement pieces that are budget friendly and would really make your decor stand out like a pendant lamp shade, artificial plants and greenery, and outdoor area rugs.
