Outdoor Color: Pink On The Patio

Fall is upon us, the time when trees lose their leaves and our gardens and outdoor spaces look a little more sparse. It's a great time to take a look at the bones of your space and see where you can implement a little more color. Not with flowers, mind you, but with paint!

This stunning backyard scape would be fabulous even if it wasn't pink, but because it is, you're truly able to appreciate its depth and sense of warmth. It was designed by Stuart Craine Design with color input from the homeowner (a lifelong hater of terracotta).

We think the presence of this much bold color in the backyard is great, and although people don't usually think about the implementation of color in more than just outdoor rugs and weather resistant pillows, now's the time to really take a look. See your space with a little foliage left and check out how your family interacts with it. Do you like the bold look? Let us know in the comments below. Want to see more of the home?
