Your backyard is your sanctuary, and deserves some TLC every once in a while. While breathing new life into your outdoor entertaining space can seem like something of a challenge, utilizing custom covers can be an easy way to curate an appealing aesthetic for your outdoor lifestyle areas while simultaneously providing much-needed furniture and accessory protection.
Choose a Colour Scheme
The first step in creating a cohesive aesthetic for your backyard is to choose the perfect color scheme. Refreshing the color scheme is a great way to keep things interesting without having to completely redo the area from top to bottom.
While it may seem counterintuitive, using contrasting colors for your covers can create a beautiful visual statement. Think muted mustard with bright orange, turquoise with cream, gold with royal blue, sky blue with baby pink, or coffee brown with navy.
Customizing covers to fit your new color scheme is a breeze, so don’t be afraid to add in some new hues courtesy of your covers. And with the variety of color options at your disposal, there’s no limit to the creative color combinations you can come up with.
Another innovative way to personalise your custom covers is to monogram it for a backyard design that’s uniquely yours. Let guests know that you and your family have worked hard to create this comfort and you are proud to share it. There are a number of monogram styles to choose from, including block, circle, curls, and diamond and more.
Select the monogram that best fits your family’s style, whether that be traditional or something a little bit more modern. In the same vein of monograms are family crests and logos, which are just another way of adding a creative and personal touch to your outdoor lifestyle area.
One way of jazzing up your backyard is to add patterned covers to your creative arsenal. From chevron to polka dots, there’s a plethora of patterns you can utilize to break up the monotony in your backyard. Play around with different textures and designs to see what best fits your desired aesthetic.
When choosing a pattern for items such as grill covers, be sure to choose one that is easy on the eyes and isn’t too visually cluttered. Stick with solids for the coordinating accessories to help keep the aesthetic clean and draw attention to your perfectly chosen patterns.
Switch Things Up For the season
Seasons play a huge role when it comes to fashion, food and other aspects in our lives. So why not use our visual preferences as the key to playing around with our custom covers as well? Here are a few inspirations for seasonal aesthetics:
- Winter calls for a warm, cosy and merlot inspired aesthetic. You can try using tartan and plaid patterns in shades of green and red for the colder months.
- Spring is perfect for floral patterns and bright pastel hues.
- Celebrate the arrival of Summer with UV resistant pillow covers in bold golds and yellows.
- For Fall, fill your backyard with rich shades of oranges and reds to match the changing leaves that are a staple of the season.
Of course, classic black and white accessories will fit in all year long, and work best with practical items that you’ll make use out of every season, such as storage bags.
Rotate your designs
Nothing kills a creative vibe quite like monotony. Spice up your lifestyle area by rotating the pieces in your custom cover collection according to season, mood, aesthetic and utility. In doing this, you bring a fresh dynamic to the visual appeal of your outdoor living area.
The best way to ensure that your backyard aesthetics are fresh and exciting is to not use the same aesthetic all throughout the year. Don’t be afraid to switch things up when your outdoor lifestyle area starts to feel stale. After all, variety is the spice of life!
