How to Add Patio Accessories to Your Outdoor Space
If you are anything like me, it can feel a little overwhelming when trying to decide on a color scheme for a space. But it doesn’t have to! Just make a plan, or better yet, use one of mine!
Raise your hand if you are ready for summer!
It was a looong winter with a newborn and a toddler. (My daughter, Liev, was born in the beginning of December.) Vitamin D please! Well, summer’s right around the corner, and can’t get here fast enough!
All winter long, especially at that 3:00 a.m. feeding session, I found myself dreaming about my ideal outdoor summer space. Can you tell I needed an escape? Haha!
Although my backyard has come a long way since we moved in, it’s a far cry from the drool-worthy images I’m pinning on Pinterest!
Since I can’t overhaul my back yard, I thought I’d start with the little details! Accessories are an affordable and easy way to make a big impact, and a great place to begin when planning your color strategy. The trouble is, there are sooo many color palettes out there.
How do you strategize?
Think about some summer color basics and how they make you feel!
I chose NAVY, SEAFOAM BLUE, CORAL, YELLOW, and GREEN. These are staples when it comes to summer colors, and the perfect foundation to start with.
You can stick with a monotone color palette like you see in the strategies below, or you could start mixing and layering in some pretty AWESOME accent colors! That idea just makes me HAPPY, but that is step two in planning your color strategy!
I’ll share some mixed up color palettes with you in the next few weeks. In the meantime, let me give you the DETAILS for these color strategies, so you can start planning your ideal outdoor space NOW!

Choose NAVY if you want to go back to the classics with a regal vibe. It will give your space a fresh nautical feel without being over the top!
