Spring is in the air and it’s time to start thinking about your outdoor living spaces. This year’s trends lend themselves to nature, nurture and cocooning. There’s texture and color, the warmth of woods, and sleek lines of metal. Comfort and style come in one package with outdoor furniture designs found in the 2013 lines of Brown Jordan, Sutherland and DeDon to name a few.

Selecting the right furniture to sit and enjoy the sunshine is only the beginning. Exploring the colorful world of outdoor fabrics like the new lines of Robert Allen, Perennials, and Sunbrella will give you the opportunity to add some personality and vibrance to your outdoor space.

Emerald green is the Pantone color of the year. So why not work the trend and add a splash of colored fabric with this tranquil hue? Or even incorporate emerald with the raging trend of dip dye for your outdoor accessories. Check out this simple image of dip dyed blocks that can be used as outdoor embellishments, and require a lot less watering than flowers.
