Are you a colour person? Some colours make us happy while others are said to create a calming effect, energise us or even make us sad. So it’s important to consider colours if you are creating a quiet haven outside where you can de-stress. So how you can get colour into your outdoor furniture so that you compliment your exterior lounge area? The easiest way is through the use of furnishings under a nice shaded area either with a pergola or shade sails.
For instance, you’ll be sure to want cushions for the chairs; some alfresco furniture comes with it already in place, in which case you won’t have much choice but to go with that. But you can easily purchase smaller cushions to that lovely wicker furniture, or even boat wood furniture which could well have some of the old boat paint still on it, depending on where it is from. Outdoor furnishings are often available from the furniture store, where they are displayed on the furniture so you can see how it looks together.
