I am so ready for summer. SO. READY.
Portland, Oregon, I love you madly but I am ready for the sun to shine its glorious beauty upon us on a regular basis. With heat, and not this windy, nippy, crisp coolness we’re getting with any small burst of sunshine.
Until that day comes, here are some gorgeous design inspirations bubbling with hot colors to help heat up your home patio – at least, in design style, if not yet in actual temperature.
This one is my absolute favorite:
The hues are simply perfect: bright and cheerful with a slight edge and modernity that makes you feel like you’re in a hip outdoor cafe.
I’m not normally a fan of yellow, but the outdoor set above makes me feel the warmth of sunshine without actually having any of the real stuff. I love the arched back of the chairs and the large trio of round mirrors on the concrete make me think of rearview mirrors. I think they are a clever and fun addition to the space.
These outdoor patio sets are all from Crate and Barrel, one of my go-to spots for vivid and modern decor.
