Summer is almost here, so why not start redecorating your backyard and patio? A little bit goes a long way when you add a few accent pieces and accessories to your backyard or patio

Here are a few of my favorite color combos to help add excitement to your home for the spring and summer. Just adding two or more colors to your outdoor furniture can help change the look of your patio and yard.

I picked my favorite color combos and trends for outdoor living spaces this year. By making your yard or patio more beautiful you’ll be even more willing to spend time outside rather than being being cooped up indoors.

1. Lemon black-and-white

This combo is a great mix together. The yellow balances out the black well.

casablanca lanterns

Outdoor Pillow

2. Go bold with a mix of rainbow colors

You can achieve a fun and playful look by adding an eyeful of colors. Incorporating a handful of colors to your yard and patio will surely help bring a smile to your face. For example, you can add deep blue, sunny yellow, happy red, orange and more with decorative throw pillows or even paint your furniture.

If you’re not big on stripes you can get a mix of solid colors with pillows or any outdoor accessory and still achieve the rainbow look.

3. Soft blue and green

These colors mixed together are reminiscent of the sea and nature.
