Perhaps you want something a little different for your patio this year, perhaps you want to restyle your patio in the typical New England style and bring some of the style from up north down south. You might be interested to know that this type of furniture dates back all the way to the 17th century – back all the way to when our country was first founded. The reason that it is referred to as the ‘New England’ style is because the settlers were decorating their homes in such way to remind them of their traditional English aesthetics. This included simple color schemes, rustic touches, and clean lines. This is what made their new country and new location feel like ‘home’.
Today the New England outdoor patio furniture style still has the same basis. A hint of coastal-inspired infusion for the new century. Having a New England style patio means that your outdoor area looks welcoming, refined, and refreshing. These are the steps to go through if you want this highly sought-after look for your outdoor area.
Using white as a base
Almost all of the patio furniture ideas that are based on the New England style begin with white furniture. That should come as no surprise because white as a color symbolizes the coast and the color is both neutral and fresh. You have high-quality furniture sets available that use resin to recreate the appearance of wood slats. This is going to provide the perfect base for the New England style look for your outdoor patio. Of course you are able to play around with the different options, but white as a base is one of the hallmarks of the New England style.
Adding touches with red and/or blue
You have found the right white furniture for your New England style patio, now it is time to finish the look with some red and/or blue. Some of the designs tend to stick with blue, while others have a more varied red, white, and blue color scheme. Whatever you are going to go with for your outdoor patio area, you want cushions that are going to have these colors. If you want to go with a more modern New England style, go with a solid navy cushion for example. If you want to make your patio look a bit cozier, you can go with the blue and red stripe.
Completing the look with beach-inspired accessories
Now you use some perfectly placed accessories to make your New England style outdoor sofas or chairs look even better. Perhaps have a sisal rug on the deck to bring the entire outdoor area together, have some beach-theme outdoor artwork to decorate the area or just go with some blue and white striped accent pillows. As for accent pieces are concerned? Try blue melamine lanterns and dishes!
Having a New England style for your outdoor area is certainly going to be talking point. When next to the beach, the color scheme looks amazing and it draws upon a rich history. If you want to get inspired, stop by the showroom and see for yourself.
