Summer 2023 Outdoor Living Trends


Summer 2023 Outdoor Living Trends

Hot off the presses (and from the lips of top designers) – we present three of the hottest outdoor living trends! These will surely pop up in residences from Arlington to Washington to Falls Church to McLean this season!

Bold Jewel Tones

One of the outdoor furniture color trends that is most exciting is jewel tones. Named for their resemblance to gemstones—like rubies, sapphires, and amethysts—these rich hues are saturated with color for an eye-catching, dynamic effect. Viva Magenta, Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year, is an excellent example of a jewel tone and gives us a taste of what’s to come for tonal trends. Use them in new lounge sets and throw pillows and vases.

Metallic Finishes

Metallic accents are steadily gaining popularity thanks to the personality and visual intrigue they bring to a space. Depending on the shade you use, these finishes can add warmth or chill vibes. To incorporate metallics into your patio aesthetic, start subtle. Try hanging wall mirrors with thin silver frames or flank your sofa with a pair of end tables topped with burnished brass vases.

Sustainable Materials

West Elm’s Telluride Outdoor Sofa is made from sustainable or recycled materials.

The value of the global sustainable home decor market is expected to reach $556.3 billion by 2031 as we seek more outdoor furniture and supplies made from natural, recycled, and upcycled materials. Here are some ways to bring sustainable style to your porch, patio, or poolside. Use reclaimed wood coffee tables, lounge chairs made with landfill- and ocean-bound plastic, solar-powered lights, and biodegradable pots.

Of course, these trends can all be combined to create an aesthetically pleasing, sustainability loving space for you and yours to idle away the summer hours…
