Elegant splashes of color are part of my signature style and while verandas are soaked in white this summer, I can help yours pop with color.
Splashes of color help move the eye around the space by creating focal points. A well-chosen and carefully-selected hot pink accent pillow can show off your elegant outdoor furniture and transform your poolside living area into a modern indoor-outdoor living space. The bright lime sofa with pink accents I used in the Steel & Glass Residence to the right are just enough to add a zesty pop of color to the pool area without disturbing the relaxing atmosphere.
A bold color choice can also change the mood of your outdoor living space from dull to exuberant. You can bring your outdoor oasis to life with bright colors that offer a high contrast to your whitewashed lounge chairs, rustic lanterns and natural elements.
This Laguna Beach Getaway uses ocean blues for pops of color.
When choosing bold colors in your outdoor living space, you can also incorporate and mirror the colors around you in your color scheme. If the blue Pacific Ocean is within sight, bring it onto your balcony with aqua blue cushions. If lush courtyard gardens and green foliage linger over your pool area, mimic their hues in your seating and accessories.
