It’s easy these days to mistake a walk around your favorite home décor store with a stroll through a crayon factory. Calming neutrals, bold metallic and bright tropicals all share shelf space. Inspired by 2017 interior trends, our design team at Trex has selected the best outdoor decking to complement today’s popular trends.
Pretty With Pink
No, you aren’t imagining it. Pink, in all its glorious shades, is everywhere in outdoor decor. Soft blush tones give way to rose, while fuschia demands attention. With the right focus pink can pack a punch as a statement chair, accent pillow or a simple vase of peonies. This ultra-feminine shade holds its own with the striated greys and blacks of Trex Transcend Island Mist decking. The strength of Island Mist and the flirtatiousness of pink make it the perfect twosome.
The tranquil coupling of grey and ivory has never been more on trend. Think nubby West Elm rugs, richly textured rattan baskets and ombre poufs in these muted, monochromatic shades. The calm tone of Trex Transcend Rope Swing allows these neutrals to simultaneously stand out and blend for a modern and serene look that will have shelter magazines calling.
Sweet And Spicy
If muted hues aren’t your thing, take heart. Vibrant color palettes burst with an energy that scream “happy.” It’s an all-citrus deck decor line-up these days with tangerines, lemons and pineapples gracing partyware, placemats, even wedding invitations. The rich, tropical-inspired umber of Trex Transcend Spiced Rum provides these intense shades the backdrop they need to get the notice they deserve.
The Danish aesthetic known as Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) conjures hot chocolate enjoyed by the fire, dining by lit candles and cozy nights huddled under a cashmere throw. Hygge is about creating intimacy, contentment and moments that lift one’s spirit. When we think Hygge, we think calming whites and creamy beiges and nothing pairs better with this neutral palette than the honeyed tones of Trex Transcend Havana Gold. Hygge and Havana Gold are about creating simplicity without effort, making the ordinary extraordinary.
