Top 5 patio trends for 2017

Rising temperatures and shining sun mean it’s time to get outside. Whether you will be curling up with a book on your lounge chair or entertaining friends and family poolside, there are four key style trends that you will want to incorporate to help create your own outdoor oasis.

Here Cindy Jardim, style and trends director for Lowe’s, shares her tips for achieving these looks.

Cuban Cool

This festive, fun and vibrant transitional trend evokes images of lush island life and memories of tropical locales, letting your vacation come to you. Embrace woven wicker furnishings and warm copper with lively splashes of island greens, surf blues, fiery reds, and tropical citrus tints. Consider keeping your lemonade cool with a palm tree ice cube or two.

Renewed Formality

Comfort and classic details inspire this tailored and timeless trend. Bring indoor comfort into your outdoor living room with gazebos and pergolas framed by luxe drapes. Paired with oversized gold lanterns and glazed ceramics, this style creates an updated traditional aesthetic. A classic mix of layered neutrals, timeless greys, Catalina blue and soft coral define this polished look.

Metro Modern

This contemporary design story merges urban influences with simple details. Picture escaping the concrete jungle with streamlined design and a cosmopolitan edge. Contrast bursts of bold yellow against sleek shades to create visual interest with geometric patterns and crisp minimalist lines.

Gracious Living

Take a break in sun-kissed casual comfort. Relaxed, soft floral patterns meet creamy whites and fresh shades of coral, apple green and robin’s egg blue to create the perfect ambiance for sitting pretty on your porch or patio swing.
