Interior design is getting more and more popular, but what many don't realize is that interior design can also connect to exterior design. Whether it's the landscaping, how you lay out your back yard, or your outdoor patio, there are a lot of different outdoor spaces that can be designed with the same principles as the indoors. But it can be difficult to know where to begin with outdoor design, so here are some of our favorite outdoor patio decor ideas and general design tips for your patio.
Pattern mixing can be intimidating, but one key way to do it right is to work with coordinating colors. The coral red and gray/blue pillows borrow colors from the rug, so even though they follow different patterns, they go together. Another way to unify your patio decor is to follow a motif or theme; in this case, geometric shapes are a common point with the rug, pillows, and even the coffee tables and accent pieces.
If you do have a wall somewhere in your patio, hanging something on it is a perfect way to add in patio decor. One thing to keep in mind when decorating any space, though, is that you don't want just one tall element and that's it--you want to add in other pieces of visual interest with that same height throughout the space. This room has that covered with its french doors and windows, but it also wisely incorporates that tall lamp so that the butterfly isn't the only interesting decor at that height. Follow the same principles in your patio to create a stunning space.
When your patio is so largely defined by the hues of the walls and ceiling, it makes sense to play into that with your furniture, rugs, and accents. The reds on the wood inspired the other reds in the room, like the terracotta rug, reddish/orange pillows, blanket, and coral coffee table. When working with one color family, be sure to not just limit yourself to one shade of that color; like this room, go with multiple shades and tones so that the space isn't one-noted.
Bamboo furniture is great because it plays well with so many different design styles. You can use it with jungle settings with a lot of greenery, or it can fit well in tropical beaches and poolside settings. Bamboo furniture also mixes well with different styles of rugs, and so choosing the right rug can help connect that bamboo to whatever style you're trying to encapsulate.
Just like the inside of your house, your outdoor patio and backyard have unlimited potential to becoming a space that reflects your personal style. When it comes to outdoor patio decor, remember the importance of every element, from the furniture to the side tables, from the rugs to the pillows, every piece of decor you include should be intentional towards creating your style and supporting what you want the space to be.
