Summer is officially upon us, which means longer days, better weather, and more time spent enjoying the outdoors—including in your own outdoor space.
So, what are some of the biggest trends in outdoor living this summer?
A recent article from furniture retailer Living Spaces outlined some of summer 2021’s biggest outdoor living trends (according to Google Trends data), including:
- Warm colors. The go-to color scheme for outdoor furniture in 2021? Warm, earthy tones like terracotta, rust, and moss green.
- Bringing the indoors outdoors. Outdoor spaces are evolving; as outdoor activities have increased over the past year, so has the need for more well-defined, outdoor “rooms,” like outdoor living rooms and dining rooms.
- Garden gnomes. “Cottagecore” is becoming an increasingly popular design trend—and garden gnomes are a fun, inexpensive and on-trend way to capture the nature-based aesthetic in your backyard (Google searches for “garden gnomes” have increased 11.3 percent over the past year).
So, what does this mean for you? Summer is a great time to spruce up your outdoor space—and if you want your space to feel fresh and current, these outdoor living trends are a great place to start.
