Outdoor Trends 2017

Summer 2017 is at its peak, and we have decided that this is the perfect time to give you some tips on how to decorate your backyard according to the latest trends. Having a nice place to sit and chat in your own backyard can be a great attraction to the sunny days of California. So here are some of 2017 trends for your outdoor design:

1)Get into the beach vibe
One of the most ongoing trend for your outdoor decoration are coastal colors. Giving your backyard an ocean look with light blue and cream colors can really set a tone and make your backyard a nice, calm gateway to relax in.

2)Use what nature offers
After the recession, a new trend of using natural materials has started as a way to save money on design. However, the great looks of the natural materials caught many eyes on its way to become the new fashion.

3)Bring your living room outside
Another great trend we see in 2017 is to use indoor furniture to decorate your backyard. We personally think it’s a great idea and it looks amazing. You can have a nice outdoor rug with a coffee table and a sofa on it to create a beautiful place to hang out with your family and friends.

4)Use funny colors
Unlike your indoor design, outside you can play with colors more. Try to use non-traditional colors in your outdoor furnitures to bring some energy and good vibes to your sitting area.

5)Mosaic table
As part of the vintage style, many people started to decorate their outdoor sitting area with Mosaic tables. We think they look amazing and bring color and character to your sitting area.

6)Who needs a roof over a kitchen?
The old bbq area had transferred into a whole kitchen outside in 2017, and it looks great! Having an outdoor kitchen improves the bbq experience so much. Now you have a whole new area to enjoy for cooking and hanging around with friends.

How To Plan The Perfect Pool Party

Summer is almost here! It’s time to stretch your legs, fold the thick and warm blankets, lift up the shades, take off the pool covers, and enjoy the beautiful California sun. What’s a better way to greet the summer than to have a perfect pool party in your backyard? Enjoying a sunny day in the pool with some friends is always a great plan for the hot, non-humid days of the summer.

This time, we decided to make the perfect pool party guide to help you have fun with friends in your pool, and maybe show off your hospitality. So here are some tips and guidelines for the perfect house pool party:

 

  1. Decorate Your Backyard:  Make your guests feel festive and enter party mode with nice decorations across your backyard. Tie up balloons on a thin string and hang it on your fences, trees (if you have trees in your backyard), patio. Get a few paper lanterns and hang them. To make the decoration part easier, you can choose a nice theme for your party and decorate your backyard according to the theme.
  2. Colorful design: Whether your party has a theme or not, picking color palette for your decorations can really make a difference. You can choose one color or a few, just make sure you are using mostly if not only the colors you picked. Bright colors like red, yellow, blue and green are highly recommended.
  3. Go Crazy With Your Drinks: Drinks can really boost up your party. Rather than having a few bottles of alcoholic drinks and some beverages next to it, you can make a few cocktails before the guests arrive and serve them in a special way like an unusual glass, umbrellas, crazy straws or anything that is connected to your party theme. A good example would be to make a big pitcher of mojito / margarita and pour it into small jars with salt line and a little umbrella.  

Pool Toys: Regardless your age, pool toys are always fun. Get a few pool inflatables and let them do the rest. Your guests will have a blast and the best part is that you can use them way after the party is over.
