When you’re looking for outdoor space inspiration, you can pull from all over. After seeing Pantone’s colours of the year, we couldn’t help but think of how we could incorporate them into an outdoor space. Check out our vision board below to see how you can use these colours and some of our products to refresh and upgrade your outdoor space.



Pantone’s colours of the year are  Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow.

Ultimate Gray is perfect when it comes to looking for composite decking and works well for other larger elements in the deck space.  This is a great colour for larger & long term items you want in your space as well.

We love the Illuminating Yellow for its bright and airy, summertime feel. It livens up the space and makes it even more inviting to you and your guests. In the outdoor space its great for accents in the area.

Pantone’s colours of the year and website, in general, are great starting points to grab ideas from. Make sure to browse their site and see all the ways they can inspire your next indoor or outdoor project. 



Now that you’ve got a better idea of the colours that’ll characterize your outdoor space, it’s time to figure out what products you’ll need. Check out some of the Nuvo products featured in the Vision Board below.

The furniture in this mood board, apart from the colour, works for a few reasons. The modern chairs, elegant throw pillows and classic black firepit are all perfect elements which come together to give your outdoor space a finished look. We also suggest adding a few plants to add some life to the space and make it just a little greener. We think in a space with these colours, the vibrant greenery and life the plants bring balance out the bright Yellow and Gray.  While the Illuminating Yellow is a great way to bring life into the space for years to come, choosing accents that can easily be repainted or replaced is a great idea, especially with the trendiness of certain colours.



Now that you’ve got a little better of an idea of what you might want for your outdoor space reno, it’s time to move the process along a little further.
