Colour palettes for Pinterest-worthy outdoor living rooms

As Summer approaches and outdoor living is right back on the agenda, Taubmans brand ambassador Shaynna Blaze shares her secrets to making outdoor living rooms look like they just popped out of a perfect Pinterest board.

The right use of paint and colour, paired with the perfect furniture and accessories, can create an entirely new outdoor space, effectively adding an extra room to your house, perfect for entertaining, time with family and being the envy of your neighbours.

Flaming Hot

Taubmans Stormy Shadow on the decking with Akimbo on the walls set up a base that heroes the ‘cube’ feature in Black Flame, Taubmans 2018 Colour of the Year.

This palette has strong contrasts that highlight the features of the architecture.

The white showcases the doors and balcony with almost a traditional touch, allowing Taubmans Black Flame to add a contemporary focal point, and the introduction of the soft greys to tone down the intensity overall.

When you have such strong contrasts, just be careful to keep your features minimal so as not to overpower.

This look is right on trend – modern minimalist is the new Hamptons.
