Top outdoor patio trends for summer 2015

Memorial Day has past, and that means summer is almost here!  Below are top outdoor patio trends for 2015, including some to ditch from last summer.

1. Lime green accent colors

1. Lime Green

Fresh, natural lime green is the perfect accent color to add a pop of color to your patio. From throw pillows to umbrellas, you can’t go wrong with this trendy color. This is also a great color that will attract renters to you property over others!

2. Vertical gardens

Vertical Garden

Low-maintenance plants and succulents will be very popular this season. Vertical or wall gardens offer a sophisticated home for succulents, herbs and other low-maintenance plants, and will be one of this season’s biggest outdoor patio trends. These are a great way to spruce up your outdoor patio if you have limited space, or don’t want a lot of maintenance.

3. Hurricane candles

Hurricane candles are this season’s most popular outdoor lighting solution, and will be equally prevalent among budget and luxury spaces. When grouped together on tables or lined up along the patio floor, hurricane candles are romantic and create a wonderful ambiance that can be enjoyed on any budget. These make a perfect decoration for a beach house while staying low on price.

Three fads to replace

1. Tuscan colors

1. Tuscan Colors

“Khakis or yellow-based neutrals are out, as well as anything muddy or Tuscan-inspired,” says Zillow Digs designer Marc Thee of Marc Michaels Interiors. While these muted hues can bring warmth in moderation, they feel heavy and out of place in outdoor spaces, and don’t reflect this season’s fresh, streamlined aesthetic.

2. Shabby chic furniture

2. Shabby Chic

Intricate, shabby chic patio sets will fade away, as summer 2015 is all about simplicity and clean lines. Detailed wrought iron patio sets will be replaced with sleek outdoor sofas and loveseats adorned with pillows and throws in this summer’s hottest citrus colors.

3. Excessive patterns

3. Patterns

“People grow tired of busy patterns, so keep them to a minimum,” says Thee. Instead, add interest and texture with natural greenery and pops of citrus colors. Look for more solid color choices on pillows and throw blankets this summer.
