Light the Fireworks
Summer is the season to make the most of your outdoor entertaining space with these three must-try’s.
Summer is the season for whimsy. If your outdoor entertaining area is a mix of serene stonework and natural grains, complement the space with disciplined pops of colors and patterns in your pillows, pitchers, and throws.
While green and taupe are generally the go-to’s for outdoor accents, embolden your backyard bashes with splashes of warm reds and oranges (think Mexico), or bright blues and sunflower yellow for an ode to the south of France.
And if you have a vibrant garden, choose accents that extend your floral scheme, not compete with it. Most importantly, have fun. This is the time to experiment with little investment. Whatever you do, it’s sure to be festive. Even the minimalist at heart can’t resist a happy hint of color come summer.
