Reading Time: 5 minutesWith days and night getting warmer by the hour, it is about time to prep your porch, backyard or patio for some chilling out time and lots of outdoor entertainment. To achieve a stylish outcome and embrace a more inviting feel, you will need help from cool, soothing colours, retro-inspired style/ideas, and natural materials, which is what this season is all about. No more plastic faux-wood furniture, no wrought iron pieces, no cold, modern concrete looks. Instead, natural materials, like teak and rattan, and the use of wood are both in. Spaces are becoming more rustic and rural, adorned by charming solid teak seating areas that age beautifully outdoors, creating a loving, weathered-grey look over the years. Below are the top 10 summer 2017 trends to make sure your outdoor spaces reflect your personal style while being on trend, stylish, and comfortable at the same time.
