Outdoor Trend: Neutrals

Neutrals are a great base, a blank canvas to which you can add seasonal touches. And when you use Sunbrella fabrics, you don’t need to shy away from lighter colors, since our easy-to-clean, durable outdoor upholstery fabrics easily stand up to stains and bad weather. 

 

 

Creating a Grounding Palate 

Neutrals provide a grounding palate for tying in accent colors. You’ll notice that we pepper in neutrals in each of our collections for a grounding color story for busier accent patterns. Both cooler and warmer greys and neutrals are trending as they each support different color palates. By choosing the right neutral, you can sit in multiple environments and pair with many different finishes. For instance, we’re seeing a major return to warmer neutrals since they pair well with wood finishes, which are trending, and also because they create that sense of comfort, warmth, and security that we all need. 

 

 

Playing with Texture

Whether warm or cool, neutrals create a beautiful, understated palate perfect for layering. Maximize the minimalist trend by layering different textures for a lived-in, personalized look.  Read on to learn more about how to style textures

 

 

Style with Stripes 

A go-to way to incorporate neutrals is the use of stripes. By choosing a stripe that has a streak of white, like the Surround pattern in Sunrise, you can style it with multiple color palates as the seasons and your preferences change.
