*Cues up favorite summer jam* – let’s get into it.

From the ground up

Let’s start with the base(ics). If it’s time to completely refresh your outdoor space, or add some cozy elements to elevate it for summer entertaining, maybe it’s time to add some outdoor rugs. With searches for ‘Outdoor rugs patio ideas’ up 20x on last year. Give your outdoor space a fresh look and comfort with an outdoor rug.

Feelin’ warm, warm, warm

Orange, mustard and terracotta patio decor? Warm tones will go full crescendo as people turn up their outdoor coziness. Searches for outdoor furniture and decor in these heated hues have seen a rise in 2022. Topping the charts is ‘orange patio decor’ which saw over a 6x increase in searches. Bring the warmth indoors with the warm and rustic Madera sideboard that can easily transition from room to room to add a comforting touch as a dining buffet or bedroom dresser.

The boho must go on

*Channels inner Miranda Priestly* Rattan for patio season? Groundbreaking. This timeless boho patio trend is back, but this time with synthetic staying power. ‘Boho patio ideas on a budget’ were up over 4x since 2021. Carry some boho chic into your office space with the Culla desk. The streamline design and smooth wood surface adds a touch of style to any task.

Fresh air, don’t care

Plants are popping up all over our patios this summer, starting with large pots. Plants are a great way to add some colour to your space, searches for ‘Big pots for plants ideas outdoor’ are up 7.8x and privacy planters. Just add water.

Lounge out loud

Go big and stay home. From deep-seated sofas to outdoor sunken lounge areas, full-scale outdoor chill spaces are set to sweep us off our flip-flops. ‘Relaxing patio’ searches saw a 4.5X increase since last year. Add a relaxing moment to your indoor spaces too with the Resa lounge chair. It shows off big personality in a sleek mid-century silhouette, but It’s not so big that it takes over your entire room, and not so small that you can’t lounge to your heart’s desire, the Resa chair is just right.

Outdoor all the way

This year will be all about going all out with outdoor decor. Accessorizing is the easiest way to refresh an outdoor space. Searches for ‘Backyard patio designs sunshades’ are up 13x) and ‘Outdoor lantern ideas’ searches are up 3x. The Ballo steel oval patio dining table has plenty of room for outdoor entertaining, and its modern design will bring an air of gravitas to any space.
