With the warmth and laidback vibes for Summer 2016 officially here, homeowners will probably be spending their evening and weekend hours out on the patio. If you’re fortunate enough to have a spacious patio area, chances are that you’ll be hosting countless barbeques and get-togethers in the great outdoors. If you’re looking for convenient and chic decorating ideas for the rising temperatures, here’s how to easily redecorate your patio now.
Adorn your space with accent cushions, printed area rugs and flowing curtains: To transform your humble patio into the ultimate destination for a girls’ night, use accent pillows in shades of soft coral and ivory. Meanwhile, a shaggy white throw blanket and a blue and white patterned area rug help to accentuate the decorative colours. Wrap up your décor with lightly flowing drapes in soft mustard or light orange shades, and prepare to enjoy fun in the sun.

Turn to crisp white for the ultimate in sleek and chic: If you prefer modest white hues, use ivory paint contrasted with wooden accents as your new patio decorating scheme. The look of white-painted wooden chairs, modernized picnic tables and fresh white and pink blossoms can instantly breathe life into your space. For a fairy tale touch, illuminate your patio with a dangling outdoor chandelier and twinkling lights.

Use bold navy and white stripes for a striking effect: The look of dark blue and white striped accent pillows can add a whimsical effect to your dark green metallic furnishings. If your patio set is looking lacklustre and in need of some love, try hanging lanterns or arranging colourful daisies for a hint of summertime charm.
