Colorful Patios

Bright Pastels used outside.
Aren't they pretty?
A few bright pillows thrown on an otherwise subdued sofa really makes a difference.
That pink rug doesn't hurt either.
This patio is just packed full of color.
Wow! so is this balcony! It's bright but feminine.
Just stick a regular chair outside for the afternoon. This one does nicely in it's 
fucshia and lime.
Just paint that old patio furniture in a happy color.
Ok, can't commit to big color on your patio furniture?
Just put lots of bright flowers about.
Looks like Marilyn enjoyed a pop of color on her patio!
Isn't that set wonderful?
That umbrella is just too much in a good way!

:D I love this post, Nita! I would love a patio space. That's the one thing I miss about our previous home....we had a lovely bluestone patio!

My grandmother had an umbrella like Marilyn's but it was a turquoise blue with turquoise and green flowers!

xo,

Marilyn was amazing where ever she was! That orange is my fave, followed by close second of the orange and turquoise!

Give me lots of color and I'm a happy blog reader. Always need color in home, tried the neutral, wish I could handle it but eventually I get lots of color again. Envy people that can handle the neutral as it's quite restful and serene looking. Guess I must be a noisy colorful maniac, lol. Happy Summer Nita.
