- Outdoor Living
- The outdoor living boom has moved from
being 'just a trend' to a lifestyle. Many people are transforming
their backyards into "specialty" rooms with kitchens, bars,
and entertainment centers. An interesting twist on garden design; many
homeowners are developing garden areas to reflect their favorite
vacation destination! The demand for earth-friendly products is
expected to quadruple in the next few years. Some are referring to this
as the ‘eco-chic' movement.
A recent Better Homes and Gardens
survey confirms this trend. The survey says that building a major garden
or landscaping project is the second most popular home improvement
choice. Flowers, shrubs and trees are being used as accents, room
dividers, carpets and curtains. Homeowner's can find outdoor end
tables, all-weather floor lamps, weatherproof artwork and even
affordable entertainment sets. Along with big and bold flowers and
plants; Island colors are still strong for garden palettes.
The fashionable gardens
will present sleek, contemporary looks, with bold lines, well-defined
angles and an emphasis on colorful, exotic foliage, and flowers. Super-sized
plants, including extra-large tropical plants such as Elephant Ears and
gigantic containers spilling over with exotic jewel-toned blooms are in.
Native, sustainable plants remain popular, too. Integrating
ornamental and edible plants will also be huge this season. People
don't want to just work in their gardens, they want their gardens to
work for them!
