Patio Design and Decorating Tips for 2013

Every year, decorating trends changes. Now that we have entered 2013, there are new trends for patio design and decorating that start to emerge. These tips are of great help.

Let us start with the color of the year and 2013 is going green. Pantone LLC, the global authority on color that provides standards and trends for the design industry, announced that the color of the year is Emerald.

Emerald color is a great pick for patio and backyard decorating because we can easily incorporate plants and other greens of nature. In fact, green plants are great helpers because they provide accompanying hues for this color of the year.

Conforming to the color of the year, the trend for backyard and patio design is likely to go green and more of nature. We can also see that a blend of beautiful architecture and nature is becoming more of a trend these days.

Incorporating more plants especially vegetable and fruits is worth considering because Emerald color expresses a refreshing and lively look.

With these trends, it is great this year to set up a relaxing outdoor space. Like adding a comfy sofa set or setting up a little table for two where you can enjoy the look and feel of nature in the patio. And when summer comes, you can setup a relaxing patio lounge chair and a side table with matching patio umbrella. You can choose any type of outdoor furniture but wooden texture would reign for a nature inspired outdoor space design.

For existing patio furniture items, repainting or accenting them with emerald would suffice. But if repainting is not doable, try adding pillows and accessories that are in emerald color. You can also buy an emerald colored outdoor umbrella or shade sail which will have a plenty of stocks this year for sure.

Quick tip! When designing and decorating a patio this year, just remember these few words, it is nature, refreshing, and lively. Good luck!
