17 Décor Accents That Will Spruce Up Your Backyard

 

While all things vintage have been enjoying an enduring prominence in interior design over the past couple years, you’ll see that give way this summer to products with a more subtle throwback to the past. Many of this season’s standard outdoor decor accents have been reimagined in surprising ways (beanbag chairs and patio lights), while others are just downright new and ingenious (umbrella stand bowls and outdoor pizza ovens).

Noteworthy, is the reemergence of teak, which is experiencing a vogue in outdoor furniture collections, find it paired with modern patterns. Also popping up are 70s-style lounge chairs, geometric patterned accent tables, fun twists on traditional coastal motifs, the prevalence of galvanized steel and a number of interesting, yet stylish, patio entertainment gadgets.

You’ll also want to consider moving away from formal outdoor dining, which is swiftly becoming a style of yesteryear. Try replacing your traditional patio table with a casual sectional lounge and outdoor coffee table instead. Lounge furniture makes for a more relaxed and easy-going atmosphere. Summer is all about entertaining and having fun, and your outdoor space should reflect that. An outdoor entertainment area rather than an outdoor dining area is multi-functional and, therefore, more practical. To kick things up a notch, invest in a wheeled bar cart to house glasses, lemonade or iced tea, snacks and condiments, so that your table surfaces remain dedicated to your guests.
