1. Accent wall . Most people think of an accent wall as something you add only to interiors, but its also a terrific style to introduce a explosion of eye-catching colouring on the outside of your home. What I love about exterior accent walls is that you can go a lot bolder than you might on the inside. This is because the area likely get inundated with natural sun, which softens and lightens the hue.

Greet visitors to your home with a splash of a warm, vibrant shade, such as a zesty orange. This colouring would be tricky to pull off on the entire exterior of most homes, but on a fencing or small segment of wall, its a delightful dose of fun color.

2. Textiles . Of course, paint isnt the only style to bring colouring outside. Theres an abundance of colouring and pattern options in outdoor-grade cloths. Again, think about going somewhat bold. This vibrant lime green coordinates nicely with the natural greens in the landscape.

3. Furniture . Another vehicle for introducing colouring to your outdoor dining or lounge area is via furniture. Im definitely insuring a trend toward more boldly hued outdoor furniture and furnishings. Theyll truly stand out if most of the other materials in the space are of the neutral variety. 4. Artwork . Borrow notions from your interior decor to dress up your outdoor spaces. Artwork that they are able withstand the elements is a fantastic addition to an outdoor lounge. This is another fairly low-commitment style to bring interesting colouring to your outdoor hangout.
