Welcome to the first “official” week of summer!
Even though it has felt like summer for a while here, we can say it has officially begun 😉
In honor of the summer season, what better way to kick it off, than to show off the latest outdoor design trends?
The Decoista Architecture and Interior Design website has highlighted many hot trends for Summer 2014, and we want to share a few with you, along with how we are integrating these trends!
Casual Decor with Pops of Color
Begin with hues of blue and white and add in pops of yellow or orange. Then create comfortable furniture such as a hammock or a few nice chaise lounges. We like to add a throw pillow here or there in an accent color,
or a cute little colored table to the mix for a pop.

Cool off with flowing water
Water always relaxes. Whether you are on the beach listening to the waves crashing…or in your backyard pretending you are on the beach 😉
Incorporate a water feature into your design.

Indoors venture outdoors.
Make the patio and extension of the living area.
We just completed this stunning home in fairview with sliding glass doors that lead off the living area into an open patio with outdoor kitchen and pizza oven!

Add unique lighting in new places
This requires you to think outside the box. Whether you are dangling lights from your cabana or patio…. or adding under-lights to your chaise lounges…who doesn’t oooo and ahhh over some good lighting?
