Create A Shabby Chic Or Vintage Look In Your Backyard

Baby, It’s Bold Outside: Add splashes of color in your backyard with furniture and decor.

Create a splash in your backyard this spring and summer seasons — with color, that is. Paired with your neon-hued, retro-themed swimsuits, your backyard furniture and décor will not only make quite the statement, but prove to be more comfortable than ever before.

Natural & Neutral

It’s back! Upholstered furniture, in both grey and mustard, is making itself cozy and comfortable this season, but this look is anything but dull.

According to Terry Cosgrove, buyer and designer at Paddy O’ Furniture in Scottsdale, add pops of color with red, orange or green throw pillows to create more of an industrial look. Or, go with teal, yellow and brown for more of a botanical or “shabby chic” feel.

Color Me Pretty

The addition of color isn’t limited to throw pillows, however. Consider adding oversized, brightly colored ceramics to complete your backyard furniture set; or, liven up your fire pit, and dump vibrant recycled glass in shades of blues, greens and oranges. And don’t forget about vases, dishware and other simple additions that can give your backyard some flair and character.
