Relaxing outdoors isn’t just for those with a large garden or backyard. It doesn’t matter how little outdoor space you have, everyone deserves to enjoy their outdoor space as a place of relaxation or escapism during this summer. Nordic style supports small spaces as well as adding extraordinary style, it’s about lifestyle, hygge, and something simple but memorable in your life.
Speaking of outdoor spaces, the summer patio is probably one of the most anticipated of the year. Especially when combined with Scandinavian nuances, the impression of minimalism and elegance makes anyone feel comfortable despite their limited size. The patio is my first go-to when I want to rest at the end of the day with a good book or glass of wine in hand. So, prepare yourself to be inspired with these inviting summer patio ideas below!
Cozy neutral color accents
Welcome this year’s summer with neutral colors that give comfort. All the colors are as reminiscent of nature as the wood tones, as well as lots of black and white accents. These are classic color combinations that create bold spaces and contrast with a neutral color palette, or go for anything that suits your outdoor style without being too monotonous.
Minimalist furniture for outdoors
Nordic patio usually adhere to a minimalist design, including in the selection of furniture. Use simple and practical outdoor furniture that won’t take up a lot of space on your terrace. The material can be made of metal and wood with aesthetic nuances. To add a touch of elegance, bamboo and rattan furniture welcomes summer in a welcoming style. Also add a coffee table and side tables to place drinks or other items outdoors.
Green plants as outdoor oasis
The key to capturing a refreshing outdoor vibe is lots of plants. Decorate your terrace with green plants in inviting pots or vases. For a corner patio, use pots and large plants which will make a beautiful outdoor oasis. Smaller plants and flowers can be placed on side tables, or you can decorate a fence with planters filled with flowers or vines. Enjoy!
