Outdoor Living Trends for 2017

Bring the inside out - The outdoor area of your home is an extension of your indoor, as outdoor rugs mark spaces, side tables and ottomans are grouped with couches and chairs

Natural materials - Look for more wicker, rattan and teak, with succulents in decorative boxes

Colors - The popular blues and grays of inside are making their way outside, for a cool coastal feel, with pops of colors on throw pillows, cushions, and blankets for sitting around the fire pit

Landscape - Sustainability with drought tolerant plants, grasses and low maintenance plants

Edible gardens - Many homeowners are building raised beds, planting their own vegetables and herbs. Find a sunny spot and put on your gloves. Smaller space? Try vertical or potted gardens
