As we wind down our fabulous spring in San Diego activity posts, we want to remind you that at the end of every day, you can wind down and enjoy the best of this season right in your San Diego backyard oasis. It’s always a good idea to get out and find new things to do in this dynamic city in which we live, but what makes it all worthwhile is having a luxurious living space available through your back door. With this in mind, consider these fabulous trends for 2019 to incorporate in your San Diego backyard oasis.
That Boho Vibe
Much of what we are seeing in decorations and fabrics for the outdoors this year focuses on a bohemian style. Lots of layers of pillows, blankets and scarves with different textures and patterns are popular for upholstered seating and pavilion interiors. But instead of the bright hues you may associate with vintage boho, opt for muted tones based on this year’s Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral. Ethnic and geometric patterns that incorporate soft but lively golds, oranges and earthy tones are everywhere.
When selecting new furnishings that best show off boho style, opt for wicker and rattan seating pieces with contrasting upholstery. This summer, we are seeing a lot of natural materials that ground backyard furnishings while providing a link between city dwellers and the forms of nature just beyond our urban borders. Organic elements crafted from stone and wood, especially teak, bring nature right into our outdoor living rooms while providing a sense of calm at the end of a hectic, technology-centric day.
No Trouble With the Curve
Another big trend this year for your San Diego backyard oasis involves shapely curves. While fabric patterns may focus on geometric shapes, outdoor furnishings and shade structures are curvaceous. These rounded lines incorporated in lounge chairs, umbrellas, and loveseats provide a softness and the perfect vehicle for mixing vintage and modern pieces. Curvy shapes are also a great foundation for layering textiles in the warm, spicy hues mentioned above.
Cook for a Crowd
Perhaps more than any other feature popular in 2019 for a San Diego backyard oasis is the outdoor kitchen. Although we’ve seen lots of homeowners adding a kitchen to the back patio, this is the year when it becomes de rigeur for the well-equipped outdoor living area. In addition to built-in grills with all the extras (panini press, infrared sear, griddles, etc.), you will certainly want to add a little bit of everything you would find in an indoor culinary center. We’re talking compact refrigerators, trash compactors, pantries, pizza ovens and, of course, an adult beverage station with ice, glasses, condiments and more.
