Color Palette

Just like a room, decorating a patio starts with a color palette. For events that have a kids side and an adult side, balance is the key to making everyone happy. Look for color combinations that have at least one neutral color, and one pop color in the mix. It will help with incorporating a fun and playful look while maintaining a sophisticated tone at your patio party.

Next, you have to find the perfect furniture. Modular sectionals are great for outdoor spaces, especially a sectional with a durable fabric that can hold up against children as well as the elements. Depending on the size and shape of your backyard space, a modular sectional can give you a lot of options for different configurations to provide maximum seating.

Dining Table

Look for a dining table that is going to be an investment for your backyard space. I would recommend against bargain shopping at this point. If you plan to entertain every season, you need to have a table that will last. At the same time, there are many high-quality options that will not only resist the elements but also add to the color and style of your event.

If the dining table is the time to invest, the chairs are another story entirely. Comparison shop away. There are plenty of inexpensive options that will go perfectly with an upscale design. I like outdoor dining chairs that are light, stackable, and have some color to them.

Outdoor Rug

You can’t forget about the rug! Rugs make a beautiful addition to any styled space, and the outdoors are no exception. In fact, outdoor rugs may be even more ideal because they are kid and pet proof. They are extremely durable because dirt and mud simply sit on the surface of the rug, making it much easier to clean up after your soiree. As the perfect inexpensive way to brighten up your space, outdoor rugs come in a wonderful range of colors and patterns that will help you design a party that will leave all of your guests impressed!

#FridayFavorites: The Walfab Company – Outdoor Fabrics

We stepped even farther out of the box this #fridayfavorites with some outdoor fabrics from The Walfab Company! We picked this company because of its diversity and uniqueness. Not only do they do all sorts of fabric lines, but they also create some fabulous wallcoverings! Walfab started by catering to designers in south Florida, but decided to expand their horizons after doing so well. We love some many of their fabric lines but especially the outdoor fabric line. Walfab mildly stuck to their tropical brand and mixed that up with the modern and transitional styles from their new brand. We have so many examples as you keep scrolling. Just try to imagine all these fabrics on your cushions on your back patio, and you will probably yearn for them just as much as we do!
