For the past 2 years I’ve been a home decor blogger, but did you know that before that, for 25 years, I was a Fashion Designer? I’ve been toying with the idea of bringing my fashion expertise to the blog and I think one of the best ways to do that is to adapt my knowledge of trend forecasting to the home decor I feature on the blog. If we already know what next year’s fashion trends are, why not use that information to guide this year’s shopping?
A great place to start is with easy and inexpensive summer updates. If you’d like to refresh your outdoor living spaces, here’s a great color palette being shown for Spring/Summer 2017 that would work perfectly now. So let’s look at 20 Summer Updates Inspired by Next Year’s Fashion Trends.
The trend I’ve picked to highlight this week began for Spring/Summer 2016 and is being expanded for 2017. Inspired by the global wave of eco-conscious living, the blue that is so prevalent this season is going to be joined by greens and turqs to become a complete celebration of all things sea and sky. Colors are clear and bright, representing the quest for clean air and waters and what better time to herald these things than the very season we love to get outdoors?
Below you can find the mood boards from various fashion forecasters supporting this trend, and beneath that the products I’ve selected to update your own outdoor spaces in this feeling.

I’ve curated a selection of products that you can add to your outdoor spaces right now to achieve the look that is upcoming. While blues and greens are always available, it’s in the way they’re combined that makes the look fresh.
