Outdoor pillows have come a long way. Now there is less distinction between indoor and outdoor pillows. Nearly every style and fabric and look of indoor pillows has been created for use outdoors. The choice of colors, patterns, and textures has never been better, making it fun and easy to decorate. Here are some decorating trends to consider as you select new outdoor pillows.
Merging Indoors with Outdoors:
Current trends in home design include the merging of indoor and outdoor floor plans. This promotes a continuous look and feel to your home. With this in mind, you can continue the look from the interior of your home to outside areas by selecting outdoor pillows that complement your interior colors and styles. For example, if the room leading to your deck features greens and blues, you can extend this outdoors by adding outdoor pillows in different patterns or shades within the same color family.
Exotic Patterns, Vibrant Colors:
Bold is in and beige is out. For both indoor and outdoor decorating, exotic patterns and bright, vibrant colors are the rage. Experiment by using a bolder look outside than inside and select outdoor pillows that are brighter, more exotic or more whimsical than your indoor pillows. Keep in mind that prints that read loud and large indoors will look less so in the open space of outdoors.
No matter what your tastes, outdoor pillows are an easy and fun way to extend the personality of your home to the outdoors.
